Beautiful alfresco setting. Tucked away in a quiet square off the beaten track. Dine on fresh seafood and fresh vegetables (many of them organic) under a pergola overflowing with jasmine,honeysuckle, Bougainville and a 25 year old grapevine. The Tsikis Family is always happy to meet new guest and welcome back many return customers ( some that have been coming since the opening in 1989)!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ate here twice over the course of a week and had delicious food on both occasions. Seems to be family run and the staff were very attentive and assisted/recommended what to order. Slightly off the main touristy areas as well which helps.

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst exploring the maze that is old, old town. It was night time and all of the trees were lit with fairy lights, which made it a magical atmosphere. This is predominantly a fish restaurant,so the choice for non- fish...eaters is limited. In fact, even the pasta dishes were fish based. We shared a number of starters (4) between four of us, which was totally adequate. The main courses were SLIGHTLY disappointing, especially if you are of Greek heritage and know what the dishes should be like. For example, we were a bit disappointed with the Symi prawns. They were a tad too big and did not have much of a sauce. However, the choice of fish dishes was extensive and all very fresh. Also, the main courses are not accompanied with any side dishes, these you have to order separately. The desserts were very tasty. Overall, even though the food was slightly disappointing this was compensated by the atmosphere and the high standard of the very helpful staff.More

Found this place while shopping and boy what a find it was. I was hard pushed to decide what I wanted to say but settled for octopus, salad and outta bread and it was THE best octopus I have ever tasted. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal...it is definitely in my top 10 of meals out plus it was very reasonably pricedMore

Very average. The average nature started when we went in and a Luke warm “do you have a booking” and then it felt like we were reluctantly shown a table. My starter of Mackeral was frankly odd. Mushed up mackeral in oil. My main of...fish cakes came with a few leaves and nothing else. There was no side. The service was poor. No interaction. The owner seemed to be asking other people questions but not us. Totally average and would not return.More

Surprise, the owner is the same than the Best sushi restaurant and recognised us. The service...is great. The decoration is so pretty. The foods are wonderful. The prices are very reasonable.
