We went to this restaurant after it was recommended by the owner of our apartment, we were not disappointed, the setting on a balcony overlooking the old town is perfect, romantic but interesting as well. The food did the position justice, starters of mussels and smoked salmon salad were delicious and almost big enough for a main course. The main courses equally tasty, especially the pork. We were given a dessert "on the house".
The service was perfect, attentive and friendly, without being overpowering. Altogether a lovely night out.

As far as I understood this restaurant is one of the few gourmet options in Parikia. I liked the decent not that long menu with clear fancy flavours.

We went to Franca Scala twice for dinner during our 4 days stay in Paros (it tells you how much we enjoyed the food and setting there!)

We were in Paros at the end of the low season, which means a lot of restaurant in town were closed and most places were fighting for tourists in the evening.

When we found this place, it was like we found a hidden jewel. The setting is superb, with a view outside on the church, and a very nice piano in the main dining room (someone was playing during our 2nd dinner there). Overall settings is comparable to a high place in Paris, with prices being only a fraction of what you would pay in a top European city.

Food was amazing! Try the chickpea with cheese, or the Franca Scala salad - both really tasty ! They served very good wine by the glass, and have a decent selection of vegetarian options (which was important for us) !

Definitely worth the detour if you are on Paros !!

Franca Scala is located in old town, and has a great terrace where you can sit and view people passing by below while you enjoy your food.

The food is the Greek staples, and is delicious and well prepared from quality ingredients. Service is major European city standard, not slow Greek island standard.

A very well managed restaurant, and we enjoyed our romantic dinner here. Recommended.

Total cost of 68 Euro for a meal with grilled feta and mussels as appetisers, with us both having the grilled fish as main,washed down by a nice bottle of white wine.
