Hidden courtyard, secluded setting. Very good authentic Greek cooking, always top of the list when we visit Skiathos.

Both of us had filet mignon medium without sauce- (one of the most expensive dishes on menu) Both were overcooked & dry served with a bit of broccoli & dry rice. Very poor presentation and altogether disappointing meal. Also had a long wait even to be offered a drink- clearly understaffed.

Will not return.

We were tempted to try here because of the tripadvisor write-up mentioning wonderful pitta bread! The restaurant is set in a courtyard with some of the area covered with vines - very picturesque - so some outside-but-covered eating area - useful to avoid full sun and the occasional shower. As we had to try the pitta bread we opted for a small starter (we usually avoid this because portions are so generous and we hate to waste food or be too stuffed) - we had eggplant salad (could have tasted more eggplanty - was a bit too creamy for us) and artichokes in vinegar and oil - delish - with the essential pitta breads. The latter were good - a bit more naan-like than the thin ones we get in the UK. We followed this with what they called shrimps but we would call big prawns in garlic - absolutely gorgeous. We had tomato and cucumber salad with these and a carafe of house white. A lovely meal. We were given a complimentary mastika liqueur (derived from the resin of a small evergreen tree found in certain areas of the Med - Chios in this part). The whole place has a nice atmosphere - when we were there, quite a few tables were full of people just sitting and chatting over wine after their meal - no hassle from the staff.

We have been working our way through the different tavernas each night of our 14 days stay in skiathos town and tonight decided to dine here at the paraxenos. Both our meals were very nice and the lovely courtyard setting made for a memorable evening.

We visited the Paraxenos on the first night of our holiday as we had visited on the a previous trip to Skiathos and thought we would go back. The Paraxenos is in a very pleasant courtyard setting and the food is very good and not expensive...the only grip I had was that they were understaffed but I'm sure as the season progresses they get more staff.
