“Awesome restaurant essential to visit!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Truly worthy of visiting! Its not too touristic and its so unlike all cafes in the harbour. Hidden in the streets of old town Gorgones catches your eye with an interesting design. Very cosy place with very friendly guys. Great sophisticated food, some dishes are purely local, some are more international. Been there several times and everything we tried there was very delicious. If i could, i would defo give this place a Michelin star :-)

Gorgones is a lovely little restaurant, don't miss out by thinking it's just a small street taverna! There are three areas, the small dining room that fronts onto the street, the steep side-road where tables are on platforms or the beautiful garden room. It is clean, tidy, airy well-decorated and each area of the restaurant is quirky and fun. The food was simple but excellent - in fact some of the best use of herbs we've had in Greece ever. I had a dish of stewed pork with rice. It was beautifully tender, delicate and flavoursome. Jo had the stuffed tomatoes and declared them to be the best she'd ever tasted in over 22yrs of Greek holidays!! They do not do deserts but we were very pleasantly suprised to receive a bowl of delicious ripe cherries instead, compliments of the house. I highly recommend Gorgones for relaxed quiet dining I

“The real authentic Greek taverne”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Being on Skopelos the 2nd time, we are so happy that Eleftherios is still running Gorgones. He makes such good authentic Greek food. It is not such a touristic place and you feel welcome like being at friends immediately. Recommendation: don't look into the menu - directly go inside and look what he has available in his kitchen!

“Quirky with great food”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

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!
