Been there with my family for dinner. The location is amazing, lying on a piazza under a huge bucamvilia tree, next to the main church of chora. The food was good - Greek food - and the atmosphere amazing. Bathe kids were playing in the yard of the church so we were relaxed.

Refreshing Tabouleh and Courgette Fritters to start Prawn Risotto and Caramelised Octopus as mains, sitting outside in small square shared with a cafe bar. Highly recommended.

We went for dinner and had a great time. We chose one starter and three main dishes and everything was tasty. Do try the saganaki (fried cheese crusted with nuts) and fig jam.

Tried several dishes and all were great. Visited twice for dinner during Ios vacation. Pancetta, grilled tsipoura fish, ravioli, beef steak all were excellent choices. Grilled vegetables with honey sauce, ntakos, oregano balls, cheese pie with honey&sesame among the appetizer choices we tried and again very exciting flavor. Outdoor seating by the square with a neighboring cafe offering live greek... More

Very nice restaurant in a very beautiful setting. Located in the old part of Chora, between the old walls, small shops and old church. In the evening in a relaxed atmosphere you can listen live Greek music. Staff and musicians are very friendly. One of the most beautiful squares in Chora, typical Cyclades style.

The food was bland, huge portions but not very tasty at all. The kitchen could use a lesson or two in how to spice the food.

Been the best restaurant in Ios throughout 70ties and 80ties - it became again a wonderful place to eat. I'd travel far for the kind of meatsoup they create - or for the octopus... Nicely situated and a place to recommend.

Wonderful location, excellent service, beautiful food that manages to be clever but still retaining the rustic charm of Greek cooking! Basic stuff like peppers and chops are suddenly transported into food to savour The dips and tasters were to die for, ate here several times this month and myself and friends all had excellence every time Every time the bill...
