Very good atmosphere, friendly service and the food was tasty and cooked very well! The restaurant is on the beach and If you eat at the restaurant the umbrellas on the beach are for free!

Having eaten there for 14 days in a row in Sept/Oct 2016 i can assure you that it is a good breakfast-fantastic lunch and a superb dining place to go . For me the best in town.

Unmatched atmosphere as you are served by the owners themselves, often they yell out orders they take so that their employees know what to cook. They will also make sure you get enough free booze to keep you happy. Very helpful. Oh and btw food is good, too :-)

Location (facing the beach and the sea but close to the town), service (attentive, joyful, fast), food (both, specialties of the day and on the regular menu) - everything was top-notch! The four of us visited 3 times in 6 days and tried different dishes - loved absolutely everything. It's busy in the evenings, but we usually came before 7... More

We have been here several times during our holiday. The owners call it paradise and it is really a good place to be. The Raki is served in small bottles free of charge and refills are mandatory. Food is nice and the clay-oven a real attraction and serves very good meat dishes. If you visit Agia Galini this is an... More

We chose this restaurant because it always seemed to be busy with the locals (which is a good sign isn't) because they know best! How wrong could we be! The waitress was very friendly and enthusiastic and I had great expectations! We wanted a traditional lamb kleftiko, which they advertised outside as their speciality..After we had received our stale bread... More

Went here for lunch with my wife & 3 daughters. Food took forever to come. Food was not very good at all. The price was average. Maybe an off day judging by the reviews here? I would not recommend eating here, I have to review how I found it. Staff not attentive at all full of in a minute, very... More

If you only have a few nights in Agia Galini then be sure to make Stochos one of your chosen venues for an evening meal. You might have to wait for a table, especially if you want one overlooking the beach. We were thoroughly well served, entertained, fed and "watered". Chicken souvlaki and beef stifado were perfectly cooked and melt... More
