We enjoyed a lovely moussaka and slow cooked lamb at The Nest. The menu was extensive, service very good, and the food was excellent.

The Nest is located in the sidestreets of the village. It provides delicious Greek 'home cooked' food that is a welcome change to other restaurants when you are on the go. The staff are wonderful and provided service with a smile.

Beautiful fresh food at great prices. Try the chickpea patties and the dolmades! They're to die for. Oh - and the sangria! The best on Ios.

Wandering around in the old town, we caught the attention of a man in front of the Nest. We've been in the islands a week and it's the best tatziki we've had to date, fantastic stuffed grape leaves and a knock out lamb in clay...More

As I remember it, there were lots of vegetarian options available. I certainly had peppers and tomatoes stuffed with rice and herbs, which were delicious.
