Recommended by the hotel owner as one of the few open, went there for dinner. Charmingly homey at first sight with charismatic cook/owner welcoming you warmly. All went well until the limited menu appeared. The handwritten menu on a child's notebook iooked like it could have been a menu made by a cook who cares about food not appearances but... More

Every visit to Hydra involves a visit to Ostria - the calamari are just so tender and sweet - all freshly caught and prepared perfectly. As we walked in to the taverna for the first time this visit to Hydra we heard a voice 'Welcome back - Stathis - calamari'!! This was before we had even looked at a menu,... More

The best things are the calamari, that the owner catches himself during the winter. The service is noisy and friendly and they make you feel home.

A few short steps back from the port, this restaurant was a real gem. Fantastic seafood served by a lively hostess and attentive staff. Very reasonable prices for such good traditional Greek food.

This pleasant little restaurant fronts the street. We only had two dishes - a Greek salad and tzatziki, along with bread. The tzatziki was excellent; subtle dill flavor, creaminess of yogurt, and the bit of garlic. Greek salad was standard but HUGE. The beer was super cold, something of a rarity on the island. Service was efficient.

My only regret was that I could not sample everything on their menu. Orders were taken and food arrived in a timely fashion, it did take longer than i would have liked to get my check.

We stumbled into this simple cafe after hiking up the hills and back down. It was definitely a family owned and operated place. It's more of a locals place. I had grilled sardines and a beer. It was fun to sit outside and watch the locals and tourists go by, some on donkeys

Have eaten here many times over the last 3 years. The place is just a few yards up from the port. Go up next to the clock tower, and it is just passed the supermarket. All the tables are outside. The lady of the house is Tassoula, and she is brilliant. She organises everything, takes the orders, speaks on the... More

We loved this place for many different reasons! The food is great, simple good local cooking, zucchini balls (even though they are not balls) were the best we tasted, octopus and small fish were superb, fava beans delicious, all washed down with half a litre of the house white. Tassoula the hostess and proprietor was the draw for us too,... More
