Very good fish restaurant. Pick your fish from the day's catch. We had the snapper. Typically grilled. A little pricey but still a good value. Friendly and timely service. This is a good choice if you are looking for fresh fish. Not much atmosphere though.

Fresh fishes (over cooked in my opinion). Crowded restaurant (because of the prices I guess), with a good and quick service. Indoor area without charming... try to have dinner at the terrace which is nice despite the amount of tables placed.

We stayed in Mykonos for a week and ate here 3 times. The fish choice and quality is fantastic. You get to choose your fish from the cold store. One of our group had the meat dishes , these were just as well prepared. The service was first class provide by lovely friendly staff. Overall it was a very good... More

For a fish tavern this place does not have good fish (something the tourists are not aware of since they cannot tell good fish from bad). So we opted for some of the other dishes which were nothing special. Prices were high though. However I would say that the waiters tried their best to help us although there is not... More

While there is a menu the 'fish of day' are on ice in the kitchen. I was then asked to follow the waiter to the kitchen who showed me trays of seafood naming each type and then I selected the one I wanted and then it was seasoned and grilled on the outside BBQ. I choose Swordfish - very very... More

Great fish/seafood restaurant. I had a whole fresh fish with greek salad and it was delicious. Service was great. They provided a nice aperitif after supper on the house. It was very good. No complaints and great meal overall.

One of our top places for lunch/dinner in Mykonos. Go up to the front of the store and pick out the fish you'd like to be served. The freshest fish, everything is delicious from the salads to the dips (tzatziki, taramosalata etc.) and excellent Greek hospitality from the waitstaff. Wine pairings are also excellent when requested. We enjoy going back... More

We greatly enjoyed this restaurant recommended by our tour guide. The fish was fresh and we were able to choose which fish we wanted cooked. It was very fresh! Our friends got the combo platter that included one fish plus a variety of other seafoods. It was delicious as well. Highly recommend.

We are there Friday night 9/23. We were in town and had read great things in Rick Steves and TripAdvisor so we decided to stop in. Service was slow, the food was average at best. We had the grilled octopus appetizer which was over cooked a bit and we picked out the giant prawns from the seafood downstairs. Shrimp was... More
