We dined here a couple of times this visit to Hydra, and each time we ran into locals who live on the island - they obviously know good food places to visit. Service was a bit slack this time with one waiter doing everything and...More

Best food in town. We went back and back and back for the eggplant dip (best I ever had), the fresh grilled squid and the fava. Nice service! We love it!

We'd saved this spot for our last night in Hydra. The setting is great, rooftop terrace with lights, hidden a bit through window alleys. After deciding on a few dishes, we were told two of our choices weren't available. The server recommended the fresh catch,...More
