I love traditional Greek food, but after 7-10 days on the islands, you long for a bit of change. This restaurant delivered. We loved all the food we tried, especially the eggplant and tuna dishes. Word to the wise- arrive early, book a reservation or prepare to wait. This place fills up fast, while neighboring restaurants go empty...but it is... More

We went back there every night while in Milos. The food was exceptional and the service was delightful. I had the best seafood soup I have ever had. Everything is fresh and made with love. It's that kind of place and a must do when in Milos.

Taking advantage of the fresh seafood, we enjoyed this restaurant and it's excellent service so much we came back for more. The owner and his staff provided us with excellent recommendations on food and wine, sat with us to talk about Milos and our experience, and provided us with a memorable night I won't ever forget.

We drove to Pollonia for lunch, arriving about 2:30. Quite a number of restaurants were open along the harbour but only a couple of busy ones. We picked the busiest - and for good reason. The beer was COLD, the food was amazing and the service excellent. This was a good place for a very relaxed lunch. We had taramasalata... More

We had the tenderloin and grilled octopus. They were both delicious, and the portions were ginormous! The wine (a Boutari brand) was the best we've had in Greece this year. Highly recommended.

Great restaurant and staff. Went back for a second dinner it was soooo good. The lemon caper grilled shrimp was excellent and the blue find tuna was actually fresh! Restaurant manager very social and accommodating towards all patrons. Clean bathrooms and pretty view both inside and in outside seating.

In our opinion Gialos is good but not that good. It tries very hard to be 'haute cuisine' which it is not. They should stick to traditional Greek food and cook it well. Too many sickly sauces for my liking.

Great vibe. Lovely owner! One of three I think. He was there all three nights. Loved that I could tell him what type of wine I liked and his recommendations were spot on. Food was simple, fresh and tasty. Great spot to eat.
