Alexander's Garden is a lovely little place, up in the lanes of Skopelos Town. Great food and atmosphere. A pretty hideaway to enjoy well prepared and beautifully served Greek food.

Excellent food & service in a pretty courtyard. Contrary to the previous review, Alexanders restaurant was open and thriving on 23rd August 2016! It isn't easy to find the first time so this may help:- from the harbour go up the alleyway between Armoloi ceramic shop and Aktaion taverna. After you pass Skopelos sandals, turn left (don't go up the... More

A short walk up the hill away from the waterfront, this garden restaurant is well staffed and presented. The lemon tree is worthy of comment; some of them were like rugby balls! Good choices of wines and food to please any discerning diner

Its actually called Alexanders and in easy walk of the main sea front. The small garden is neat and tidy and has that intimate cosy feel about it. Also on the way up to it to back you can pop into the "Hidden Door" a very small Taverna run solely by one young man who does great cocktails and loves... More

Not easy to find but walk uphill from the front and try to spot the small signs which will guide you there. A lovely setting and popular with people in the know. Excellent food and wine and attentive welcoming owners.

When the lights went out in Skopelos Town we went to Alexanders (The Garden) as they had their own generator! They are a lovely, friendly family run business always welcoming. Food very freshly and well cooked - traditional Greek fare without frills! The atmosphere is the garden is magical - definately try it.

We ate here three times. Excellent service, especially when there was an electric power cut one evening. Skopelos spinach pie, stuffed peppers, and salad. Good variety of dishes. Good service and as ever value for money. Good suvalaki and mousaka. Pork and prunes looked interesting but we didn't try it. Go for it.

Note that this restaurant is mostly referred to as Alexanders. Alexanders is one of the best places to eat in Skopelos Town. It is situated a short, uphill walk from the harbour front and there are a few signs pointing you in the right direction. It is well worth the walk - and it is downhill on the way back!... More

Off season visit so no crowds and no waiting. However during this time of year you run the risk of limited establishments serving. Although you do get more authentic interaction with locals. Sat in outdoor area. Was served immediately. Food was fresh and made to order. Greek salad in Greece is NOT prepared the same as a Greek salad in... More
