Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 April 2018 via mobile

We visited the Agios Petros tavern for the first time. The tavern is built in the countryside. The area is beautiful surrounded by a beautiful pine-tree forest.
The view from the tavern tables is beautiful.
The food is very tasty.
The cuisine is mostly meat oriented.
Most of the products are produced by the tavern owners.
Personnel is very kind and helpful.
Excellent destination combining a nice tour to the countryside and good food with fair prices.
Little kids will be enthusiastic about the pony horses that live close to the tavern.

Agios Petros Tavern is situated within a pine forest at the north end of Skyros Island. You have to drive the last 2 km on a dirt road, but that's not a problem even for sedans because the road has no bumps or potholes.

The staff are polite and helpful, and the place is really clean and beautiful. As for the menu, there are some plates you must definitely try, such as the baby goat roasted in baking paper with cheese, tomato and herbs. The meat becomes so tender and tasty that it's hard not to wish for more when you're done with your plate!

The Tavern uses ingredients from their own garden and farm, so there's a good chance that what you order has been grown right next to where you eat (you can see the vegetable garden right across the road).

Not all dishes are great, though - in particular, we ordered the beef burger and the local sausage, and I can say that both were quite ordinary, if not bland (especially the burger). All portions are big though, and they are competitively priced.

What needs to be mentioned is that they offer you a free appetizer every time you eat there - I mean a normal portion, not just a taste of it! And of course there is the usual free watermelon at the end of your meal!

All in all, you will not be disappointed if you eat at Agios Petros Tavern; and, depending on your choice of dishes, you may also enjoy a wonderful eating experience, all within a nice forest!

P.S.: Please be sure to ask for a fiscal receipt when you pay, because they are not to keen to issue them and that reflects badly on the whole experience.

Great meat tavern, with traditional local food. Big variety in big quantities and good prices.

The tavern is situated next to one of the best beaches of the island with a beautiful scenary you must not miss.

Don't forget to try the lamb and the tomato balls.

Simply the best. They grow most of the ingredients they use in the preparation of the dishes. They produce cheese and wine. Seriously, cannot be beaten.

In the middle of the forest and close to the airport this is a must go place to taste great local recipes.
