Octopus tree
Went here for lunch twice over our stay in IOS, both time exceptional. We had the octopus in vinegar, although pricey was tender and tasty. Calamari fresh and crispy, fried zucchinis incredibly generous and delicious. Topped off with delicious Greek salad with lots of fetta and friendly service, and a quaint little location overlooking the marina. Highly recommended.

We visited this traditional place after recommendations and unfortunately we were generally disappointed.
The food was average.We ordered a taramosalata which was too runny,chickpeas balls which were extremely greasy and could not eat them,a grilled octopus which came at the end(it took about 40 min).
Nothing special.There are much better restaurants in Yialos.

This places is great if you are looking for some genuine, fresh traditional greek cuisine. The owner of the place is relaxed and ready to keep his guests happy. We probably had the best meal on the greek islands at the Octopus Tree!

This little gem of a restaurant is excellent. Away from the hustle of the other restaurants, it's perfectly located at the peaceful end of the port with a fantastic view and has a lovely atmosphere. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. The traditional food is amazing and everything I've tried has been well presented, is tasty and freshly prepared. The Kalamari is particularly good as are the spinach and feta croquettes and fried aubergines. All perfect for sharing. This restaurant should be on everyone's must try list!
