During our holiday in Molivos we had twice a delicious meal at Martins Restaurant. This restaurant is highly recommended for anyone who wants to get acquainted with authentic Greek cuisine. In addition to the great view of the sea and the beautiful picturesque harbor, you will experience at Martins place that he and his wife also enjoy serving their customers the great food which they make with love. Martin and his wife Monica are wonderful and very hospitable hosts and knows well how to transform a regular meal into a great and special experience. The food is very tasty and of good quality because Martin makes all his dishes with fresh local products. His service is of a high standard and his prices are very competitive. In short, for a great experience on Lesvos, a visit to Martin's restaurant should not be missed. — Family Nguyen —

Have eaten at Martin's on several occasions now. The food is delicious home cooked fayre. Portion sizes are generous, very reasonably priced, and a great choice on the menu. Martin and Monica are excellent hosts, and are happy to show you what they have prepared that day in the kitchen. Well worth giving Martin's a try when in Molyvos.

Taken over from Bettys, Martin's food is quality and the price is low, try the kebabs with their specialised ingredients, the salmon penne was to die for, the shrimp spaghetti ha,d loads of shrimps, would definitely recommend, portions are large. We had a starter two main courses half litre of wine the the cost was 21 euros that is the old greece. Keep this up Martin and Monica.

We visited this restaurant on the first evening of our holiday in Molyvos & since then we’ve been taking all of our meals here (both breakfast as dinner) for the entire week of our stay. The best homemade food we’ve tasted for a long time in Greece, prepaired by a lovely couple who will go out of their way to ensure you have the very best of all. Everything was freshly cooked, delicious & at excellent prices. Thanks Martin and Monica & staff for taking such good care of us!

This restaurant has taken over from Bettys so decided to try the food was delicious, good quality and so cheap, reminded of the old Greece. Some of the harbour restaurants need to take note as their prices are becoming quite high. Would definitely go again would recommend.

Thank you a lot for your visit @traveller , what's the reason of having that high prices as you referred ? People these days are looking for food with good quality and reasonably priced also and that's what we offer, especially with COVID-19 still running, prices have to be a bit low everywhere instead of having extremely priced dishes and portions smaller that anyone could expect. Thank you again.

Really disappointed as this was ranked No.1 in Molyvos. The most beautiful of settings, overlooking the sea we managed to get a table outside by the wall. We waited 20 minutes for somebody to clear the table from the previous diners and ordered half a litre of the house white. Never arrived. Eventually Martin took our orders and reordered wine. My wife ordered the Sea Bream, which she said was amazing, but was also told it only came with French Fries ( why does everything always come with chips)? I had the pork kleftico. Now I have had kleftico on numerous Greek islands, usually meat onions, potatoes feta and tomato oven baked in either foil or parchment. What I received can only describe as a plate of tasteless brown slop served on a plate so full it over ran the edge, accompanied by some rice so overcooked it stuck together in one large lump. The meat was tender just devoid of any flavour. Midway through we ordered another half litre of white, again didn’t arrive. Both a bit fed up by this point and asked for bill, only to find when it arrived that the additional wine we asked for but didn’t receive was on the bill. Took 20 minutes to sort out and various excuses given. All in all beautiful setting but poor food and service which is such a shame.

Heard very good reports so were happy to visit in June. After an exceptionally long wait, with people coming after us being served, the waitress came with a complimentary wine and apology. Eventually the liver arrived and was definitely overcooked and my shrimp saganaki was very mediocre. Had much better food in restaurants in Molyvos.

First is to say that Martin’s and his wife are part of the loveliest people i’ve met on this beautiful Island of Lesvos. Moreover their both fantastic chef! They cooked for us such delicious food that we couldn’t have enough of one evening with them. The vegetarian Moussaka they served us was so incredibly flavoured and tasty that we decided to go back a second time when our stay was of only three days!! Finally the setting of their restaurant offers a mesmerising view on the see as beautiful during the day as it is during night. I would recommend Martin’s restaurant as an essential stop to anyone who would decide to visit lesbos.

We had a late lunch here with a table by the wall and fabulous views. We ordered two things, Briam and Fried Onion Balls. The Briam arrived, which we enjoyed with beautiful bread to dip. After a while we were told that a problem had just occurred with some kitchen equipment and consequently they were now unable to provide the Onion Balls as they couldn’t cook anything. The Briam was so tasty that we ended up ordering some more, which was just as enjoyable - as was the complimentary desert afterwards. We felt so sorry for the owner and the staff as they were having to turn people away from the restaurant. I only hope that the technician turned up before the evening meal rush. It was the last day of our holiday but if (when) we come back to Molyvos we will definitely eat here again.

The owners of this restaurant are very friendly and very open for visitors, if you planning see Mithymna, Martin's restaurant is the best place to eat drink and enjoying the view of see and city. The food is delicious and prices are low. Close to the port and the little local markets

Disappointed with Martin’s. After much anticipation, and after reading so many great reviews, we dined here earlier in the week. We were seated at the top balcony, with stunning panoramic views overlooking the ocean. With two of my family members being vegetarian, we were pleased with the option of vegetarian mousaka - we haven’t seen this on any other restaurant menus. However, after ordering this, we were told that it’s not available so were put on the spot to choose something else. Other options for vegetarians were limited, with both family members settling for a pizza (not a preferred choice!). I enjoyed the giouvetsi and haven’t seen this on any other restaurant menus so would recommend this. Towards the end of the meal, we felt rushed to finish as a couple were waiting near our table. The waitress tried to clear our plates before we’d finished eating and it felt as though they wanted to get us out so they could move the couple to our table. Sorry, I wanted to rate this restaurant higher but the overall dining experience, for us, wasn't 5* as it has been for so many others.

We had a great view with our pizza, but I gotta say the server we had was ever so forgetful. She was mostly on her phone, seemed to forget she had guests seated outside. It took forever for our drinks and the pizza to arrive. I ordered one more drink she never even brought to us. Eventually we just asked for the check and decided that my icetea would be non-existent.

After we waited for the food for over an hour, they served lamb chops that were too hard to chew, when I complained, I got a very bland Briam instead. They tried to argue about the lamb meat, and no one apologized for this bad experience just once. Very strange, I will certainly not recommend this place at all!

Hello lady. First of all , i showed you my lamp chops and was absolutely fresh and domestic . Regarding your reviews that were very cruel , if you know a bit about meat it might be a big lamp beacause they are born in November 2021 until January 2022 and the bigger is the lamp the harder it gets . Why should have apologized when many customers liked it and say good reviews about it . In addition, i realized that you didn't like the lamp chops and you changed it with briam and i showed you the chops . I was impressed that you didn't like that movement . Secondly , you went upstairs in the moment when i had many customers without asking me if we could serve you food quickly . I dont blame you , dont take it personally but i have to remind you this: My job is not to make everyones mood but food and im very friendly not because i say it but the customers by themselves . Thank you and with love like always for all by Martin.
