We have eaten here many times over the years. It is situated roughly half way along the beach turning left as you come down from the car park and bus stop. The Taverna is family run and the food all locally sourced and much of it produced on the family farm. The menu is a standard one for this area... More

Manolis is the oldest taverne on Vathi beach! The staff is very friendly, the food excellent and the choice great. Wonderful views over the harbor, and very romantic as it is hidden among trees. Highly recommended.

Right on the sea in Vathi bay, Manolis serves typical traditional Greek food and good home specials. The Sunday chick pea island special is worth waiting for. Nice service, friendly atmosphere and great choice of wines and ouzos. It's the best of all the seafront tavernas - and there's some good competition.

Wow!! Fantastic seafood and essential Sifnos experience right next to the water!! We ate at a lot of different places on the island and this was our favourite. The Seafood Spaghetti was majestic and Swordfish out of this world. Makes me hungry thinking about it!!

To have a nice table at Manolis and the wonderful wiew over the Bay of Vathi is a perfect way to spend the evening. For several years I have spend a week or more in Vathi and always had some nice evenings at the restaurant Manolis. After 2 visit the last week I am pretty disepointed. The first evening I... More

This restaurant lacks the local, family atmosphere which is evident in all the other restaurants in Vathi. Despite its apparent popularity, on our visit, the food was only average. Three items that we ordered did not actually arrive and to add insult to injury when the bill came they had overcharged us on two of the items which they did... More

Beautiful place next to the sea with stunning environment. Reasonable price. Good food & fresh fish. There weren't desserts. However, they invited us to watermelon. Cheerful service.

The location is very nice. The food bellow average. I had 'Mastelo' (lamp) a traditional local plate. Nothing special about it here. Must mention that the kitchen was very-very dirty.

They have changed. Not as good as in the past. The Sunday chickpea soon is still excellent. We have eaten at almost every restaurant on Vathi beach. We ate there twice on this 8 day visit. Sunday was excellent; Thursday was just below average. The large outdoor oven/pot which this restaurant is famous for no longer turns so the heat... More
