You're really spoilt for choice! We only used Greek tavernas, e.g. Makis, Socrates, Flamingo, Ta Pitharia, and didn't have a disappointing meal. All were within a 10/15 minute walk from the Melidron. Like Trevor M said above, all around the same price and good, friendly service. Portions tend to be on the large side, so I'd suggest not ordering too much to start with. Enjoy!

Hi, do not hesitate to book the Melidron for your family holiday. It is a very friendly family run hotel and is perfectly situated. It is very good for a young family. Skala is very traditional, there are a couple of more lively bars, but mainly nice restaurants and bars for families. We have been to Skala twice and have two girls 5 and 10, they absolutely love it. Hope this helps you!
