We only called in here as we had been to all our favourite tavernas. We miss this one out as it is usually empty even at the height of the season along with the taverna next door. We went in at around 8 pm and were the only ones there. I had lamb chops and my wife had souvlaki. Wow! What have we been missing all these years? Souvlaki was very, very good, but the lamb chops were out of this world. 5 very thick, juicy chops, not overloaded with unwanted extras. We went back twice. Only downside is that the staff always seen unhappy. But the food makes up for it.

We found this little restaurant over 10 years ago and it's still the same as the first time we visited. Spotlessly clean, well maintained and extremely efficient service. The Tzoumas family are locals of the island and take great pride in what they do. Mesostrato means halfway which it is on the bus route, Now the food, ,, there is alot on the grill from chicken Souvlaki to grilled King prawns of which we have tried most, or you can choose from many of the Greek cuisine dishes, always cooked to perfection and portions for a hearty appetite. Yesterday I had the lamb stifado which came as a whole shank that just melted off the bone, my husband the chicken Souvlaki with each portion looking exactly the same size which always amazes us. Thank you Paris and family for always welcoming us with a smile and tremendous food. Toni and Darren

Looks really nice because it is in a courtyard garden, however, it was like eating sat next to the very busy road. The seating is the typical Greek taverna hard chairs, which were very narrow, hard and uncomfortable. The noise from the road was unbearable with the bus stop very close outside the gate so our meal was spoilt by the fumes from traffic. Staff were not particularly friendly. On ordering our meal, bread was brought to the table and unlike other restaurants we were charged for this. We shall not return here, due to the noisy, busy road and the fact there is better value for money certainly in Skiathos Town.

We walked past this place several times and promised we eat there one day or evening, looks lovely and fresh and tastefully decorated. Reception was I little lacking and the food was perfectly pleasant but nothing special at all. Also were given huge chunk of bread to nibble on (not requested or agreed to) and then charged for it.
In summary....not awful but we haven't been recommending people go there like we have Jimmy's up the road.

The decision to visit this place was initially based purely on the beautiful and picturesque look of this cutie which stands out compared to the excessively 'tourist-looking' taverns etc on the main road near agia paraskevi. As the photos show this is really a unique setting particularly due to the huge tree providing natural shade during the day.
The food? Well even though we didnt have that much to eat everything was so freshly prepared and the owners were so friendly! Portions were a great size! Would recommend and visit again 100%.
