“Disappointed”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

My husband and I ate here on our way back into town from the beach on our honeymoon. We thought it was going to be a great, authentic lunch spot- especially when we saw the octopi hanging on the line outside! We walked in and the woman who worked there sighed and huffed into the kitchen. That set the tone for our meal. We had not felt this unwelcome in a restaurant throughout our entire stay in Greece. It didn't matter how the food was after that, we were just so put off by how poorly we were treated.

“Excellent place to eat”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

We found this place by chance and after our first experience, we kept visiting it for several times. Great tasty food, simple and warm atmosphere, reasonable prices. Cheerful atmosphere and a lot of jokes with family, who owns the place. Definitely worth visiting!

“Old school taverna with great food”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Tiny taverna in ano Maria, as reviews said you spot it off the main road by the octopus hanging to dry. The octopus was amazing, chargrilled and soaked in olive oil and spices. The tzatziki was garlicky and thick. The matsata was delicious, cloves in the sauce gave it a very unique flavor. Better than any of the tavernas we had in chora.

“Best meal in Folegandros”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

Better than Zefiros (sorry!) and certainly way better than To Spitako.
Up on the heights of Ano Meria, on the right of the road, and easy to miss - but don't!
Eat indoors (out of the wind) or outdoors with great views.
Run by 3 "old" people, this is traditional cooking at its best. Everything is tasty and good to eat.
The matsata was excellent, and put To Spitako to shame.
The service is eccentric but wonderful, although you wonder how they would cope with a full restaurant.
If in Folegandros, go!
