Good service, good food and good value. So much so, that we went back three times. I reckon it is the best restaurant in the port area.

We had been to Ios for the last four years and each time we come back to this family run restaurant. Lis is a great good and her daughters are great at serving. We have never been dissapointed. House wine is great too

Never eaten such tough octopus in my life. I wonder if the guy cutting a piece off (fag in mouth) has missed and got a small slither of the tree instead.

This place has a real authentic feel and lots of character. The food was excellent and it had been highly recommended by locals. It has a great location on the harbour side but away from the bustle of the port.

We visited during our 4 night stay in Ios and enjoyed a range of tapas style dishes. The food was good but rather bland and the service wasn't great. Staff were not that interested in customers needs and tables were all very crammed together. I...More
