We ate here twice on a recent stay and I must admit wished I had eaten all our meals here as other tavernas paled in comparison. The service is good without being too hurried or without being too slow. Sitting under a canopy of vines is a great way to spend your time and the food was typically old world... More

This taverna is wonderfully situated - under trees so is always a good place to visit on a hot day. The beer is cold and there's a good selection of meals available (come into the kitchen and select...). We had 2 Mythos (nice and cold), Greek salad, fried squid and zucchini balls. Service as usual was quick and efficient.

Classic fresh greek tavern food. Nice version of the Hydra Octopus recipe. Nice live old greek music outside, under the huge tree.

We and some friends went over to Hydra from the Amanzoe for lunch. We had one of the best meals and greatest dining fun in a long time. Everything is fresh, well-prepared and wonderfully served by the staff. First of all, a most engaging young man explains the menu and covers what they have fresh and ready to go. Some... More

This taverna is in a square with tables arranged around three trees. I have visited on and off for over 30 years and it is still consistently a top class professional taverna. Reasonably priced, professional kitchen and waiters, great ambiance and quality meat dishes. It is a lovely spot under the trees and you can't fail to be impressed. Highly... More

I found the taverna by chance, walking around the town of Hydra and during the two days I spent in Hydra I was there twice - and it was always very nice experience. I was not really hungry, so I tried some appetizers (big enough to be main course :-)) and I have to say, that the stuffed peppers and... More

Found this place while walking through the back streets of Hydra. Lovely lunch, great service and away from the crowds around the port.

The food was good but nothing special, the portions were small and the waitress were indifferent. Even though they were quite polite they were boring to service us. We ordered two diches,1 appetizer, 1 coca cola and 1 bottle of water and we paid 26.5€. The value of the money was good if we considered that the restaurants in Hydra... More
