Located on the pavement by the road along the sea in to the Skopelos town it really is a special atmosphere, sitting there through sunset until it turns dark in the light of the lanterns. The owner is an institution in town, a lovely guy! Earlier he used to run a restaurant up in the middle of the town, and the we always ate at is place ther underneath the big tree. He is always greeting passing people so cheerfully and friendly either you stop at his reataurant or not.
The food is fantastic!! Greek an simple, but there is something special with the tastes, and his grill is acknowledged.
This year I tried ot the fish of the day (red mullet?) and the gyros. Both were delicious!!
Look forward to next year and next time we wisit!

We ate here twice and the food was very good except for the pork souvlaki. There was nothing wrong with it except that it was belly pork and tough. Also, for the money paid I would have expected proper chunks of pork not belly pork. The chicken souvlaki was superb and just as I would have expected. On our second visit I chose chicken fillet which was beautifully cooked and we also had a pork chop which again was absolutely fine. It is a bit pricey for what it is though.

A family run taverna. Tables by the waterfront, or across the road. Good wholesome food.....and not expensive. Close to the Hotel Aeolos.

Ilias & Yannis are great hosts and no matter what time of day you walk past they are always there with a greeting and a wave.
Food typical Greek but very tasty and homemade.

Family run taverna right next to the town beach overlooking Skopelos town. Delicious food and very friendly service. Ate here once for lunch and twice in the evening..... only a short stroll from the Hotel Aeolos, the second taverna as you walk towards the town. Everything we ate there was good and seved with a smile!
