Location, food and staff are all simply amazing. You definitely should try the local petite shrimp, the taramosalata and any other dish you crave. Make sure to leave room for the delicious homemade desserts.

Had a wonderful dinner here, we ate family-style so we could all try a bunch of things. Great variety including local fare and lots of vegetarian options.

Perhaps we caught... More

Best food, best staff, best service, best location. Dear Tholos friends thank you much for everything. This my 3rd time in Symi. Lovely Island. There are many good restourants but Tholos is different. Just try once, you want to go again and again.

We were staying round the other side of the harbour, so it was quite a walk to get here, but well worth it. Wonderful views - when darkness fell, we got the full moon too! Good menu - some traditional Greek dishes, but with a twist. We'd asked for a waterside table, so we could dip our toes in the... More

A beautifully positioned taverna beside the sea with excellent food and service. The highlight is the view of Symi at night across the water when all the lights of the the unique houses, churches and skyline of windmills are visible. A very romantic setting
