Polydoros is exactly how I imagined Greece would be! Delicious home style cooking fabulous service and a great atmosphere. The staff made us feel like family and instead of choosing off the menu we were taken into the kitchen and shown the food. We spent a long afternoon eating, drinking and enjoying ourselves. Our meal ended with the yummiest slice... More

Being of Greek descent, visiting from the states, the biggest compliment I can pay this wonderful taverna is that I felt like my very Greek mother cooked our meal. Impeccable service, atmosphere and needless to say the food was fantastic!

I ate at Poly's three times during my holiday this time and would happily have eaten there at least 3 more times if I had only had the time. The food is without a doubt some of the best Greek food I have ever tasted. Whenever I am in Ios, this is one of my first stops. The seating area... More

Nice taverna surrounded with small Cycladic style houses and all in flowers, very pleasant people, serviceable and speaking good English, warm southern night, delicious fresh meal and so tasty desserts.. Strongly recommended for those who are looking for typical Greek atmosphere and real homemade Greek... More

Lots of options of home cooked greek food, which is actually made by Polydoros' mother. You are taken in the restaurant to see what they have made for the day. Service was very friendly and the environment very cozy. One of the best traditional Greek restaurants in the Island.

Polydoros is a family run traditional greek taverna. It offers a variety of greek dishes cooked as if you would at home for your children. In a typical, taverna style,in order to built your appetite, food ordering has to also be pleasing to the eyes, so if you want you can "inspect" the cooked daily specials before making your selection....

We found Polydorus after leaving Pathos when there no Vegetarian options on their menu and what a find! After being seated we were invited in to the kitchen to view the food which had been freshly cooked for that day. Everything was homemade and simply delicious. Wonderful oven baked fish, tasty fava beans, delicious stuffed courgette flowers. A very pleasant... More
