You will see my review from last year. We returned this year and went back here 3 times to eat during our weeks stay. What can i say still the best greek food in Skiathos. It has still maintained its charm set in the back streets of the old harbour despite the front of the harbour becoming very loud and busy and in my opinion un inviting. Still run by a very friendly family traditionally cooked by mother and wife of owner. We love once your order is taken the older greek woman goes in to cook. The food is excellent very tasty greek food the service is good despite there only being one waiter who is a very friendly man. A lot of greek tourists ate here also as well as locals which i think speaks volumes. The prices have gone up since last year but this was a reflection accross the whole of the island. For 4 adults eating 3 starters 4 main meals with wine and soft drinks it was approximately €65. Go and find this traditional greek taverna with the wonky wooden tables if your looking for traditional good greek food.

Me and a friend were there yesterday for a dinner. We had daily fish and moussaka and took home vine. Vine was great and the dinner tasty. The staff was very friendly and we had a pleasent conversation with the head waiter. The tavern is authentic Greek.

This very friendly restaurant is located in a narrow street in the old city. Chairs and tables are leaning, but fits this type of place. Very friendly staff and owner, interested in football and is an Aris Thessaloniki FC fan - been to Oslo and Trondheim to follow them. We came rather early at 7 pm, being nearly the first customers. It has its advantage, then they want you to stay as long as possible to attract more customers. This meant free melons for desserts for us, but with tip we paid it back :-) food was good, we had different typical Greek food. Not extraordinary, but a great evening meal.

I visited her last night no one else was seated at any of the tables that are positioned to each side of small lane. The family jumped into action and had menus and drinks to us right away. I had the cheese ham & potato cakes the were great but one criticism there were 5 off them I could have eat two and had the other three for my dinner the next night. My main was Beef with onions lovely the beef melted in you mouth again large portions. Good value as it is just off the main streets but well worth s visit.

Found this place on our last night in Skiathos! Saved the best till last! Set in the back streets just above the old harbour. Family run little taverna serving lovely Greek food. We had grilled sardines, whitebait and fish of the day - Delicious!!!!
Would definitely recommend
