Vrachos is located at the beautiful mountain village on the west side of Samothraki Island. All dishes I tried were very good but the roast goat dish was superb and one of the best ever had!

Great place for a lunch or dinner. Excellent grilled goat meat and very good, well balanced Greek white wine. You can facing the sunset with your loved one in that quiet and charmful family restaurant.

Everything we take, was very good, excellent! The food is brought very quickly. The goat is the best, is very tender, melts in your mouth :) And the dessert is offered free, from the house, and is delicious!!! The prices are reasonable. Is the best taverna!

Stunning local restaurant. Absulately Samothracian and Thracian. Great Kid food. Delicious. Service was also great. QPR is probably the best one in Greece. We ate twice there each was perfect.

They call themselves as "goat center". I am a goat fan and I had goat in Turkey platos and other places but this was the best I have ever eaten. You can have lamb or pork as well. If you want to eat kokorecci you must go for dinner. The food is not ready before 1 pm.

Drive up up, up, past the fields of sheep and hay. Look miles below at the Aegean Sea. This small village place serves excellent grilled goat, a hot eggplant dish with feta, fried potatoes, sausage and the ubiquitous mouth-watering horiatiki Greek salad. And more. The two cats wandering beneath the diners were on their best behavior. Watch the villagers gossiping... More

Consistently The Best! This is a treat like no other. I have been visiting over the years and am always very pleased. Generous portions, kind hosts, prompt service, beautiful setting under the enormous, sculptural trees. My mother and I loved it!
