“Cannot have better Greek food”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Worth moving out of Ios, 15 min drive to this country side taverna with outstanding grilled meat, salads. Everything was tasty, well cooked. Staff is extremely polite and friendly. We went twice in a week, all 14 of us, and still remember the fava, the lamb cotelets, the grilled octopus. Prefer beer, as wine list is limited, although a Katogi might suit your French taste.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

This taverna is situated a few kilometers away from the Chora, on the way to Maganari and Agia Theodoti beach.

Food was excellent (made mostly from local products), service very fast and very polite and prices reasonable. Definitely worth going.

“Well worth the drive or taxi fare!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Two visits in two weeks to Bilaeti - first visit was just my husband and son for lunch, followed a few days later by four of us again having lunch.

Its well worth the drive though the island's interior and Bilaeti is an unassuming building on first look - out front is a lovely water feature and the interior is in typical traditional Greek style. The staff made us extremely welcome and made recommendations to help four very indecisive Brits! The meats done on the spit are amazing, the pork melts in your mouth and is beautifully seasoned. You get HUGE portions so bring your appetite. A side salad was enough for four of us. We enjoyed great service in such lovely surroundings. The staff are really helpful and whilst we were settling the bill brought us lovely cake and apricots from the garden to enjoy before we left. Definitely worth a trip.

“Fantastic taverna”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We had a recommendation from The Brothers Hotel in Kampos Valley to try this taverna. We had been to Homers Tomb and travelled back towards Chora before stopping here. It was a great experience from start to finish. We ABSOLUTELY relished the beetroot salad starter, so much so that I will try to replicate it at home, followed by lamb and goat (me being brave with the goat) - so good!! Do not hesitate to try the food here. It's very good. I just wish the flies would 'do one' - but don't we all! Go try it, I don't think you will be disappointed.
