Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Another visit to Skala beach this time saw us using the 9 Muses/Agra restaurant sunbeds and facilities. Price for the day was €10. Drinks and snacks served to your seat, we decided to eat in the restaurant. Tip - there’s more choice on the eat-in menu than the bedside one. Couldn’t fault the place. Nice and clean and good service. My only criticism which is the same as most places, is the lack of staff watching over your drink status, and no one offering an additional one when you’ve finished. We three had shrimps at €25, hubby had the seafood pasta around €22 and said it was the best thing ever tasted. I had chicken souvlaki which at €12 was the best value for money. A huge plate of chicken kebab arrived with melt in the mouth chicken, properly seasoned chips and the juiciest salad ever. What’s most annoying is we’d booked somewhere else for the evening and I’m pretty sure I’ll still be full. One not to miss.

We had to have half board to get the new superior room at the 9 Muses hotel. A strange setup. The food was variable in taste and quality but for a half board option it was nice to have the choice from the full menu with a €6 supplement for steaks etc. Chicken dishes were poor, starters, desserts and pasta dishes rather better. Certainly not worth coming here unless you are half board as there’s so many better places to choose from. But for the cost of the half board upgrade via TUI it’s worth it. We were told the hotel charges circa €85 per night to upgrade and that would certainly not be worth it.

We visited this restaurant twice and the food is prepared to a good standard and reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly too. We enjoyed our meal on our first night in Skala so returned for a second visit. However, the second visit was ruined by a couple on a nearby table who set up a video call with their daughter and talked at the top of their voices throughout our meal. Their voices were bad enough but we also had to put up with a squalky reply from the other end of the call! Why is it that some people cannot put their devices down for 5 minutes and show a little more respect for people around them- especially while eating? Rant over, give this place a try .

We ate here one night out of our week in Skala , food was good and the service/staff attentive and knowledgeable regarding dietary needs ( coeliac) .. also stopped off for drinks and cocktails on three or four nights on the way back to our hotel. Mojito's where the best I've had for a long time, fresh ingredients and not just pure alcohol as some can be... Ignore the one star reviewers who give negative reviews to everyone..

Out of the 3 restaurants situated by each other, the Avra was the most impressive visually, it looks great. On our first visit, service was slow, table booked for 2000 and meal served at 2200 but they had a great singer on and were very busy so it was not a really big deal. Our 2nd visit was a disaster, the food was poor as well as the service. My husband ordered Sea Bream and asked for chips salad. His food finally came, Sea Bream with a plateful of both Salad and Vegetables, no chips. We were a party of 6 and none of us had a good meal, lots of wasted food. I wouldnt return ever, even to watch the singer

We were staying at the 9 Muses for two weeks & having just arrived & unpacked decided to eat in the restaurant at the front of the hotel. The restaurant is very welcoming & sited opposite Skala beach. We chose our meals…my husband had the pork with Halloumi & I had the Vegetarian Moussaka. Both meals came quite quickly, were hot & tasty. The restaurant was always busy, as we found during our holiday, it is a very popular place to dine especially on the evening Hollis sings at the hotel. Advisable to book well ahead that night. The staff are super friendly & extremely helpful. An enjoyable first evening spent at our hotel.

What a wonderful wide ranging menu of Greek classics & more modern dishes. Each chef has a light hand & delicate seasoning for each type of food. We chose to eat here more than any other of our favourite restaurants this year & would certainly choose half board in future. The staff are excellent & make sure to remember your individual tastes. I can not praise this restaurant & staff enough to be honest. Lovely wine list & a great cocktail list too. Whilst I am reviewing dinner I do need to mention breakfast as it is amazing! Also the waffles which my husband became addicted to. The aperitif with the bill was a lovely touch although I am now also rather partial to a black sambuca at home too!

We ate here on our recent holiday to Kefalonia and enjoyed a wonderful dinner matched by great service. Portions are slightly smaller than other restaurants but this was a bonus as it meant there was no food waste and I had room for dessert ( a delicious panna cotta). All round great dining experience.

We were staying B&B at 9muses, but arrived about 10pm in the evening and were really hungry. They still had the full menu on, and we had really good Carbonara and Chef salads. Ate there again on our last lunch, pasta and salads were again both lovely.

Have eaten in many restaurants in Skala but this is without doubt my favourite. Menu is varied, from traditional Greek to tender steaks. Have never had a bad meal. Portion sizes are too large to fit in 3 courses. The staff are fantastic, Aris, Nikos, Olga and the rest. Views are beautiful out to sea and creates a lovely ambience. Prices are pretty much the same as other restaurants in Skala. 1 litre of house wine is 11 euros and decent for the price. Cocktail bar at the side of the restaurant or alternatively the more traditional hotel bar is 25 yards further back manned by the excellent Manos. Occasionally live singers performing and even the owner Greek dancing, which adds even more to the experience. Easiest 5* review ever.

Not a restaurant for fish. We ordered fried Sole. We expected the fish to be simply sautéed or in a sauce. But we got very poor fish and chips!!! The sole was very obviously frozen. We each had two fillets - cooked in batter! Awful, Awful, Awful. The batter was hard and overcooked whilst the fish was slippery and undercooked. We had hollowed out chips that quickly went cold. It was a stormy night so we made the most of wine and dessert.

We greatly apologize for your poor experience at our restaurant. We do wish you pointed this out to the management so that we could have rectified the issue or prepared you something else rather then going directly to the internet to express your displeasure. If you questioned the way the fish was prepared , your waiter would have been happy to explain. Fried fish is just that… lightly battered and fried. If you were looking for sautéed we have many other options. As for the comment that the fish o frozen… I can assure it is not. We pride ourselves on using the freshest of products . We apologize if it was not to your standards and hope that you would give us another chance. If you do… please come see myself or another manager. Thank you for your review .

My wife and I love cocktails and we found this bar terrible. The cocktails were not like they should be with inferior ingredients and was undoubtedly the worst cocktails we found in Skala. The young barman was very inexperienced and was unaware how the cocktails should be compiled and presented.

We visited in the evening to listen to the entertainment. The staff were ridiculously overworked, literally running across the room. They were rude and unhelpful and we waited about half an hour for drinks after the order was eventually taken. Everything seemed dirty and the place was very overcrowded. Really very disappointed.

We apologize for your unfortunate experience. Our bar staff was overwhelmed due our entertainment and all our guest arriving at the same time. In the business we call it "in the weeds". It is not an excuse if you felt they were rude. We definitely apologize about that... they most likely in a tough spot. I must disagree with you though on your comment of us looking "dirty". We pride ourselves in our cleanliness and hygenic practices. If there were glasses everywhere... it was due to the fact that our may have staff been falling behind but I assure you we are not dirty. Thank you for taking time out to review us and we again apologize for the unfortunate experience. We do you hope try us for dinner and see if we can make it up to you . Ask for Marino
