We were recommended to this restaurant by some other holidaymakers. Quirky little place, off the main harbour, in one of the side streets. Tables inside and outside on the steps. Small menu but quite a variety of food. Need to let them know one day before if you want any specific fish dishes. My husband loved the beef in tomato with mashed potato and the lamb in lemon. Both the chicken soup and the fish soup were just perfect for a coolish May evening. Great food, very good service and pretty and quirky location with a tree in the middle of one of the rooms!

We were a week in Skopelos and this was our favorite restaurant. It is up the main street.

It is a pittoresque place with a tree in the inside. They have a small menu and in order to serve fresh products they have a lot of dishes that are not on the menu. There are no prices but it is not expensive. We've had the souvlaki, the plaki and the rabbit (which was not on the menu). The prices are between €6,00 and €8,00 for a main course.

It is different than the sea side tavernas with typical Greek music and Meat/fish dishes. It was a welcome variation.

The restaurant has two entrance points and one is beside the kitchen, where you can see the chef cook. I had soms questions about the ingredients.the chef came at our table and told passionately about his restaurant and the food. The waiter was very helpfull from the beginning till the end. Sometimes in Greece when you have the food, it takes ages till you get a new drink and the table is cleared out with the food. Not here! Fast, helpfull and really friendly!loved it!!

We were in Skopelos for a two week stay and in that time we tried a fair few restaurants.

Gorgones was our favourite restaurant for a number of reasons - great location (up a little cobbled back street and off the main strip where the restaurants tended to be identikit), great food (the menu isn't extensive but they do the meals very well and clearly take pride in the food) and reasonably priced (moussaka (by far the best we had) 8 euros and swordfish and steak 14 and 15 euros respectively).

The restaurant itself is also very pretty - quite small but with a lot of character and we got on really well with the waiter and chef (who came to see us in the cool bar next door and bought us drinks on our last night).

All in all - highly recommended!

The food was very good and fairly priced.
As greeks we enjoyed the atmosphere and service, we recommend it to anyone looking for a place less touristic than other places in Skopelos.

The location is the best thing about this tavern. The food was average, the service ok. (The moussaka was ok everything else so and so.) The toilet was a nightmare, very dirty! I really hope they clean the kitchen better as the toilet!
