First off the tables and decoration was dirty. The tablecloth was made of kitchen paper.

The pasta was dry and bland. The souvlaki was burnt. The pricy grilled octopus was literally half a tiny tentacle, and then a billion soggy fries and a salad.

Worst restaurant in ios.

If you are a typical greek food & culture enthusiast and lover, please do yourself a favor, do NOT spend your hard-earned money in this so called 'restaraunt'. Really, it would be a total waste of money and you will get absolutely nothing for that. We came here, for a lunch,ordered two pizzas, souvlaki and tzatziki and ofcourse three draught beers (Mythos) . After awhile we got pizzas, souvlaki and beers. Tzatziki were nowhere to be found. Souvlaki was i'd say ordinary, nothing special, but that pizza. Dear god, it was honestly the WORST pizza i have ever eaten. No taste and so small portion(well thanks god). You do pay almost nine euros for a piece of something without taste? So we were sure to pay immediately and get out. Gues what. In their menu Mythos costs 3.50 € but on our bill they charged 4€ for each. If you have a great idea to go to the restrooms do not try that either, or you will see how the aerial bombing strikes on Britain during WW2 looked like. Dirty Ruin.The servis was awful aswell. Two waiters and approximately five guest. Despite that nobody gave a damn to care. Only when i came to tips. We gave nothing. This was our 23th vacation in greece and we haven't experienced anything similar. So you do serve me a terrible food, charge drinks for more and dont event try to be polite or care about your guests? No thanks. We will definitely NOT come back again.

Walking past the restaurant the woman "American/Greek" dunno how she is Greek ( oh she's worked 2 seasons there) and knew nothing about the area!
Quote every thing is FRESH!
Ordered bread that was made by her and cut by her! ( she said fresh yesterday! So it's not fresh) and obviously cut with a machine)
Also got Chicken souvlaki, any chance of rice with it instead of chips, nope we don't do rice! but there is other dishes with rice on it so how does that work!
She said They are the best chips you will ever have!!! pick out the ground this morning! Since when do you pick chips from the ground made a joke of it as We knew what she was on about but got a blank stare back, Chips where Greasy and soggy! So not. The best!
Greek salad was ok only thing that was good was the feta Cheese but only think this because the rest of food was really average!
Olive oil and vinegar is also fresh :/
Oh and don't put olive oil on your bread as SHE doesn't like it.
So over all The fresh from the farm restaurant is terrible! Lucky she doesn't brew the mythos beer or that woukd have been awful as well!
So over all don't go there unless you want fresh from the shop food and and a headache!!!!!!

We went here after walking past a few nights earlier and being promised by the waitress/owner that all the food was made fresh with home grown ingredients, cheese made from their own goats etc. My partner ordered a "four seasons" pizza and the waitress said the cook makes amazing pizzas with a delicious crust and he would enjoy it. I ordered a four cheeses pizza only to be told they "don't have it." This should have rung an alarm bell (aren't pizzas made fresh to order? How don't they have a pizza?) but I asked for a margarita pizza with added blue cheese. First the waitress looked blank and asked what blue cheese was, then said they don't have it even though there were other dishes on the menu that included blue cheese. The pizzas took close to half an hour to arrive and when they did it was quite obvious they were just frozen pizzas that had been microwaved. The knife couldn't even cut through the crust, my Margherita had a tiny bit of shredded cheese sprinkled on the top along with a bit of sliced tomato, barely any tomato paste or oregano. When asked how we found the chef's special crust we replied we didn't really like it, only to be told "you're just not used to it." Uh, I am used to it, I lived on frozen pizzas going through uni and I know what they taste like. Poor, don't waste your time or money. Even the kiosk at far out beach club has better food and better value for money.

The restaurant was empty when we walked past and we stopped briefly to check out the menu, only to have a waitress run over to us from the kitchen across the restaurant. She oversold the restaurant, claiming they had great great meat and chicken gyros etc. She was friendly and kind, offering to take pictures of us at the table although perhaps too friendly.
We ordered 2 chicken souvlakis and a personalized grilled eggplant and mushroom salad. The chicken souvlakis were around 8 euro each and only game with a small side salad and a piece of tomato, nothing more than you can get in the centre of town for around 2 euros. The eggplant and mushroom salad was very bland, the grilled eggplant was very dry and mushrooms had little flavoring, although granted this wasn't a dish on their menu. This too cost about 7 euro. Overall it was quite an expensive meal and we remained the only people at the restaurant with one couple coming in as we left.
It is in quite a convenient place, right along the beach front an within walking distance from Far Out beach Club.
