Skandeia Restaurant

Reviewed By Irgendwo - Salzburg, Austria

We spent 12 nights in Kythira and tried restaurants all over the island. We ate here 4 times and had fish each time. This is the best restaurant for fish on the island. The refrigerator is well stocked with a large variety, different every day. Ask to see the fish. Choose what you like, ask how they prepare it and how much it will cost. The setting is isolated, but not especially pretty, in front of a large, dusty gravel parking lot. The service was attentive, except on a Sunday when they were over-extended. I would give this place 5 stars if it were not for the house wine. Maybe this is something special that Greeks like, but I thought it was terrible, both the white and the rose. They told me that it was not retsina, but it tasted resinous to me. They do have some bottles of wine and beer on tap. It’s a shame because excellent wine is produced right there on the island.

Taverna Filio

Reviewed By greekcypriot2009 - GREECE&CYPRUS

A nice restaurant in Kythera with a beautiful garden in three levels.
We tasted average home-made dishes, cooking based on fresh ingredients. Vegetables are mostly from the owner’s garden. Dishes that stand out are the Kaltsunia with spinach, and Ksinochorto with aubergines.
The service was very friendly and is highly recommended.

Platanos

Reviewed By konstantinosd965

The Café-Restaurant “Platanos” (plane tree ) is a Greek traditional restaurant situated in the central square of the village Mylopotamos in Kythera in a very nice location.
The restaurant is open in the summer having the tables under the shadow of two giant platanos trees, next to a small river basin(that is dry because of the large droughts this year), but the coffee-shop is open all the year round .
The restaurant has a wide variety of available dishes, the prices are reasonable and the service very good but not always very quick.
Everything which we have eaten (e.g. rabbit in tomato sauce with fried potatos, lamb in baking paper with baked potatos, village salad with local olives) was very tasty and served in large portions.
Sometimes there is a small problem in summer if some bees and hives are flying around (in that case you have to ask for a small tin of smoked coffee, so that they go away).
We were satisfied from the Café-Restaurant “Platanos” and we would like to suggest it.
We will visit it again if an opportunity arises.

Vanilia

Reviewed By Paulthegreat86 - Cardiff, United Kingdom

We went twice there at our stay in Kapsali. We tried the crepes both times and they were more than fulfilling! Nicely made, many options to choose from and huuuuuge portions. Just by the beach. They serve crepes, coffee, smoothies. ice cream and toasts and sandwiches. The coffee there is quite good there. Would recommend it.

Pierros

Reviewed By Paulthegreat86 - Cardiff, United Kingdom

Pierros is really good traditional taverna. No fuss, no new age greek cuisine with a twist. Just old school cooking. When we left, i thought i had dinner at my home cooked by my mother. Small menu with 5-6 options for starters and mains but everything that we tried was cooked right and was quite tasteful. And the best thing was the bill at the end. I t was sooo cheap.We couldn't believe that we ate so much and so nice food at that price!
We ate outside where there are tables on the pavement but it didn't bother as at all. Its a great value for money restaurant. Would definitely recommend it!

Familia

A love for the surrounding land and sea is the underlying source of inspiration for our dishes at Familia. We wish to highlight the relationship between the raw nature, produce and cultural history.

Reviewed By sonomujo - Brussels

We managed to eat at the restaurant just before it’s seasonal closure. The menu is innovative and the food delicious. The chef Is obviously very skilled at creating dishes with balance and flavour Portions are plentiful. The slow roast pork was the star dish. It was superior to the slow cooked version I tried at Kosima in Athens.
Fun and knowledgeable staff.
We were a party of six foodies, difficult to impress but we left a very happy and contented bunch.
