You'll need transport to get to this place as it is off the main route but wow what a fantastic view of Skiathos Town and beyond when you get there. We stopped for a drink and a sandwich and couldn't complain. The food was freshly made and very tasty and service prompt and polite. If you hire transport when here... More

This place is worth the drive not only for the view but the food was ok too. The staff we were friendly and helpful but it may have been because we were with locals. On a fine day you can see for miles.

We had the loveliest evening here- definitely worth the drive up there! The family that owns the restaurant is wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with our server. Thanks for the great night!- With love from Scotland ;)

We had a quick dessert there yesterday. The waiter brought the menus but did not bother to clean the table. I cleaned it myself as I didn't want my kid to play with the onion leftovers sitting on it. When the waiter saw me doing that, he rushed in with a rag in his hand and commented on me cleaning... More

The view from this spot especially if you get the first row table is amazing. Because of the nice view and the unsigned and narrow street it is better to go for lunch. Service is average by unsmiling waiters who are also the owners. It is strange for a greek restaurant that they ask if you want bread with your... More

Not the easiest of place to get to! High above Skiathos town and well worth the effort for the balcony views. Good selection of freshly prepared food and considering its location and views prices very reasonable.

We always visit here at least once a year, but other tavernas are catching up quality wise. The food is now the same and sometimes not as good as other tavernas nearby. We will visit again on our next holiday, but it is no longer our "go to" place...
