Every visit to Hydra we have eaten at least once at Xeri Elia, but feel that the food wasn't 'quite there' on this occasion. Dined there for lunch - bread, 2 beers, a Greek salad, and 2 pork souvlaki. Service was good and it is...More

Dousksos was off the beaten tourist path, tucked back in Hydra Town, and a great find. What made this taverna great too was its link to a favorite musician who died this year, Leonard Cohen. Cohen wrote a song about this restaurant, that's posted on...More

Our starter (dolmades) was not special nor the tzaziki, but the mains: aubergine imam and lamb stew were amazing! Especially the imam dish is highly recommended. Lamb stew was a bit pricy, but other dishes were fine. Seating is also pretty. Good value for money!
