“One of the best restaurants in Europe.... if not the best!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Every dish offers a different and exciting taste, the produce used is of top quality and freshness, the wine list is divine, the staff is friendly offering an unsurpassed service, the soft music accompanying your meal is heavenly, the owner is a perfectionist, expert wine taster, obviously food and wine lover.... If you are looking for the best, here is where you should come! Where are these Michelin Star boys and girls to award this restaurant three stars.

“Great food in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Been in Paros two weeks and have eaten here three times...the other recommended trip advisor restaurants were also very good, just surprised Thea is not up there. The food is delicious and very well priced for the quality, little more pompous than the tavern style food but simple enough that you don't feel it's fine dining. But this is a restaurant more than just the food, the music was brilliant and the sunset over anti paros is very special, it's a great place for a romantic dinner.

“Beautiful setting and great food”

I noticed a lot of Greeks eating here so when the locals pour in then you know you are in for a treat.

“Best Food in Paros”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

I write this review as an avid oenophile and as a Greek-American, so please believe me when I say that I had an outstanding dining experience featuring Greek food and wine. First, the location is spectacular, on the water's edge in Pounta overlooking the port with Antiparos just across the channel. The menu features Greek foods from Asia Minor, so there is a bit of Middle Eastern flare to it. As other reviewers have noted, the wine list is extensive and deep, featuring the best wines from all over Greece, with older vintages available. The red wines are decanted at the table -- an action one does not often see carried out at Greek restaurants. The food, from appetizers to main courses to deserts, was outstanding. Rich and savory, with interesting sauces and side dishes, the portions were generous and the meats were cooked to perfection. The service was attentive yet unobtrusive, with the wait staff knowledgeable and helpful. The magical combination of unique location, high end Greek food, and top notch Greek wines served with love and care by the owners make Thea a truly special dining experience, a "must" for any foodies or oenophiles visiting Paros. Prices are high by Greek island standards, but put this restaurant into the heart of any major city North American or European city and they would be triple what they are on Paros, without the view!
