Really lovely, food is fabulous, great setting. One of the best traditional settings on the island - make it one of your island time “musts”.

I was there for lunch after swimming. The half tables was reserved for dinner after 4 hours and was very difficult to sit... The service was OK but the food not. We ordered lamb and goat not good. Many flies but they cannot do something...about that. We will not recommend.More

Having been to Kythira first in 1992 I was keen to find out new restaurants after many years away. Everyone heads to Avlemonas but misses Skandeia, as I did on this trip. However I found it the 2nd time around and what a find it...was. Run, of course, by Greeks of Australian Descent (most of the Island emigrated to Oz) it has a beautiful feel under the cooling trees in open country. The staff were excellent and the Mother the chef. Superb food with flavors and spices all sourced locally. A place you could spend all day but I suggest you arrive for opening at 1pm, take all the time you need and then head to Paleopoli beach 5 minutes away which is calm waters and the sun sets over the beach. A perfect day after a perfect meal. Try it!More

Very picturesque open air sitting, along the lines of a traditional Greek tavern. Decent food, decent service, decent prices.

Great place, wonderful food, great service. Super recommendable. We stayed in Avlemanos where we didnt like any of the restaurants and it was a great surprise to have Skandeaia just 5min drive.

Very expensive, nothing special, not friendly environment. The area is also without any view. We were very disappointed.
