Description: Harmony Mexican Restaurant located in a hacienda-style house seemly carved out of the rock face with a breath-taking 300 degree view of Mylopotas beach and the Aegean Sea on a little Island called Ios. Harmony is the number one Mexican restaurant in the Greek Islands with a menu full of rich, delectable flavours of Mexican cuisine made by our internationally trained chefs using fresh local produce. After listening to our customers we are open for breakfast from 10am with fresh smoothies, pancakes, breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros and acai bowls. Talented musicians from all over the world perform whilst the sun sets over the intimate outdoor dining area. Diners are encourage to come early and stay late in the lower 'Little Thailand' area which includes bean bags, bocci games, backgammon and stairs cut into the cliff side for when a refreshing dip in the ocean is needed. We pride ourselves on our family ethos and all round good vibes that we try and share with everyone who comes to visit us. The famous bikini and board short wearing staff are always on hand to deliver fun, friendly and informative service. People always ask, "What is it that makes Harmony so special?" Quite simply, it's the people! Everyone who visits Harmony leaves a little bit of themselves behind. A bit of laughter, a bit of soul and a whole lot of fun. Book ahead or just walk in, but be prepared to call this place home. Welcome to Harmony, Welcome Home.

“Go for the experience not the food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

If you are staying in Ios for at least a couple of nights then you defiantly need to head to Harmony for dinner. Depending on if it is high season and what time your eating I would advice booking before, your hostel should have their number. This restaurant has the best views and live music from many of the guys who sing at harmony. Our service was average and so was the food (a little bit thrown together). It's expensive for the food but the experience is priceless.

“A beautiful ambience.. but average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Don't get me wrong, this place is beautiful! The views before sunset were gorgeous and the staff were very attentive for a large group but my partner and I found ourselves disappointed in our sharing meat platter for two. The meat wasn't as tender as we expected and it didn't have any real taste, even when adding the salsas.
This place is a must see in Ios but we were just the unlucky ones to make a bad menu choice.

“Perfect view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

We could not get a table first 2 times we visited so we booked. Average meal, not very authentic Mexican flavours - lacked spice. Brilliant view and location and great staff though, so give it a go.

“Views are incredible”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Whether you go for food or drinks. Harmony really is something you need to see. The views alone are to die for. The food was quite tasty - had no complaints. The night we went there was a lovely man who was singing and playing the guitar which set the mood for the night. If you get the chance to go here, make sure you try the sangria - it's delicious.

“Disappointing experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

After reading other reviews we were looking forward to a nice dinner and some great mexican food but this place was not as good as we expected.
The service was terrible. We had to ask for menus as no one bothered to bring us menus for quite a while after we were seated. Then we had to wait a long time for any of the waitresses to take our order. I can understand slow service when a place is extremely busy but this was not the case, we could clearly see the staff standing around having conversations and not checking that we were being served.
The food was pretty nice and the view and location are great but, in my opinion, service is the most important thing and we were very disappointed with the staff at Harmony.
