I am in love with the porkchop in escape. Have been coming here for years and want to finally leave a review. The owner is a great guy too. Always treats is to delicious complimentary homemade desserts after dinner. Highly recommended!

Not a lot is open in the middle of the day for lunch in Chora. We had Ceasar Salads and a Burger and waited probably 40 minutes for our meals which was pretty slow for a less than half full restaurant. Wasn't overly expensive but wished we had found somewhere a little less Westernised.

Service was wayyy below average, was very surprised at management for not even being very attentive to customers. Food would be decent enough if it was served on time but because there was always such a long wait (even though there wasn't many in the restaurant) it was pretty basic.

Had a late night supper here on our first night in the island, due to delayed ferry. The staff were so helpful, the food very tasty and well priced. Great place to eat or have a drink at either day or evening.

The place was clean and quiet. We were walking around looking for a place to each lunch and passed many bar/pub type places that weren't very inviting unless you wanted to get drunk in the middle of the afternoon; this is when we found Escape... It was open, in good condition and had a large menu to suit any appetite.... More

I visited ios on my travels, island hopping! I went to many restaurants and bars in ios, but visited escape many times, as staff were so friendly and both breakfast and evening menu were great and at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend to anyone the Indian chicken and a visit to escape restaurant.

Atmosphere was good. The meals were overpriced though, portions were small and service wasnt very friendly. Would not come back here again.

Living on the Island of Ios for nine weeks gave me the opportunity to try many different restaurants and I can honestly say that escape topped them all! The service was brilliant, the food very nice and very affordable! Chicken burger and stir fry would be my favourites!

Easily one of the most authentic, enjoyable and affordable restaurants in Ios. The food here is fresh and fulfilling, with a wide variety to choose from on the menu. I would definitely recommend the escape breakfast with an ice cream frappe!

Thank Aoife D
