Traditional restaurant in Chora. Polite service, large portions of food. Poor decoration - no views. Average-poor taste.

One of the most friendly places to eat on Ios. There is always a lovely welcome by all of the staff in this family run business. We last visited Ios in 2015 but were instantly recognised by George (apologies for spelling) on the door and...More

We came across The Nest while exploring Ios town. It is a surprisingly spacious restaurant with good air conditioning and friendly staff. The menu offers a wide range of Greek specialities, providing large portions at value for money prices. Highly recommended.

We had lunch here on our last day. Mum's home made stuffed vine leaves to die for, followed by stuffed tomatoes for me and veal stew for him. Gorgeous. Charming staff too.

Nice staff, awesome staff, lovely prices and homemade food :D, this is a great place to eat at good prices, the quantities are huge. They have different cuisines and everything just taste great. It's a great place to get away from the party trash people.

We had the shrimps and calamari, and the pork with tomato. All dishes had flavor and came with chips and rice. Service was good and the waitress gave an accurate explanation for every dish. We missed some fresh ingredient recommendations for the day.

Good solution, in the heart of Chora-Ios. Great staff, amazing dishes. The prices are good: less expensive than in other restaurants. But, the quality...good level. The place is not so big, so....if you want to find a table in the evening....it's necessary to telephone and...More

As I remember it, there were lots of vegetarian options available. I certainly had peppers and tomatoes stuffed with rice and herbs, which were delicious.
