Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sadly this place is up for sale summer 2023 and boy does it show! In previous years we have enjoyed fabulous, traditional Greek food here but this summer were disappointed with the medeocrity of it all and the 'dont care' attitude. Give it a miss...this year and fingers crossed its sold on to an attentive owner who cares and will tajke it forward. You cant beat the setting down by the fishing boats at the port. Gets very very crowded high summer in this area......More

We return to this restaurant year on year and were so pleased to be able to again this year, as always it lived up to our expectations! Also this time we were lucky enough to be able to spend a few days in their Grand...View Houses in the village, which were also incredible. The family/team at Captains Table are wonderful; helpful, fun and friendly. Great with the children (and adults alike) giving the place a great atmosphere for the evening. The food is delicious, lots of small plates that are fabulous to share. The village bread with fava dip, ladotyri saganaki, sea bass and banoffee pie are our personal favourites, but I’m yet to find something we dislike. Never been disappointed, a definite family favourite and we will be back as soon as we can be!More

Very delicious greek mezes with wonderful atmosphere just by the seaside. The plates are smaller than usual but the waiter warned about this concept when we sit. The staff is very friendly.

Excellent mezes. Attentive service. Nice ambiance. We had 6 different mezes, all of them perfect. Icecold beer and, of course Ouzo made it an memorable evening. Highly recommended!

We only had appetizers and a couple of Greek beers it it was all very good! Also very friendly service - which is more than I can say for some of the ports visited on this cruise of ours. Would gladly return again!

We ate here on a Sunday night, 3 days before we leave, we really wish we had eaten here sooner. The food (Greek Meze) was fantastic and the service excellent, very friendly and helpful. We may visit again before we leave in 2 days, it...really was that good!!More

Enjoyed great traditional meze food, the specials were exceptional, being grilled octopus, large prawns and the local spinach. I was once advised to avoid the specials in restaurants, this advice is misplaced at the Captains Table. The staff were knowledgeable, efficient and good humoured. A...great place to enjoy an evening by the harbourside.More

Excellent meal. Great service by friendly staff, and they coped well despite being busy. We are all vegetarian and found that there was plenty of choice, and we enjoyed the dishes arriving a few at a time. The homemade peanut brittle which arrived with the...bill topped off a really enjoyable meal. Lovely setting on the harbour side too.More

We visited Captain's Table et the end of a 3 week cruising trip around the Northern Islands. We had enough seafood by then so we went for non-sea food dishes such as village sausages, pancetta, mushrooms and potatoes. We enjoyed them all together with some...ouzo! The owner and members of his family run the restaurant together and they speak perfect English. Highly recommended!More

I have been at this restaurant twice before. Both times it was excellent. (I may even have written a review on Tripadvisor earlier?) But the pandemic meant a big break in tourism and restaurants closed. Would they still be as good as before? - They...were! The seafood was very good and fresh, and the ordinary table wine was just right. We were a group of 12 people, had booked before. Would they manage this? If possible, they were even better in their service now. All friendly and speedy, a nice little joke in between. Everybody in our little group felt we had chosen the right place. Thank you!More
