Worth the walk or boat trip to reach this lovely Taverna over looking the beach and sea at Agia Nicholas. The atmosphere is relaxed and chilled. The food is good especially the octopus in red wine sauce and saffron rice, you need to try this. We ended staying on til the sun went down and got a lift back to... More

We arrived on foot from Agkali bay at lunch time with no reservation and we very so lucky to get a table at the first raw (the majority of the tables were reserved from 2.00 onwards and we arrived at 1.30). We chosed to eat grilled octopus and grilled calamari. The calamari was a better choice. Overall my rating is... More

Where do I begin ? I had read reviews and seen pictures of Papalagi before going to Folegandros but I did not expect such a gorgeous restaurant and delicious food. I could have eaten there everyday. We went three times : two for lunch and one for an afternoon snack. If I go back to this island I will make... More

This is atop my favorite beach in Folegandros. A gorgeous sandy beach with still waters. Papalagi has a stunning panorama. I fell under the charm of Papalagi thanks to the friendly service and the fact that they make very unique Dakos Salads. I have a love for Dakos. It's my favorite summer dish. Normally, it is a vegetarian dish. Papalagi... More

Accessible by boat or walking in an amazing location high above the sea at the beach of Agios Nikolaos. If you stay late the owners will give you a free boat ride back to Agali beach. The food is simply excellent, of course the specialities are fresh sea food. The kindest service you can get abd the prices very reasonable... More

After catching the little boat to agios nikolas beach (a must do as it is such a beautiful setting) we went up to the taverna and had a table overlooking the sea. The food was absolutely superb. I agree with other reviews that the servings are not huge but in my opinion perfect for lunchtime. Both the clam spaghetti and... More

Nice food. Great service. Amazing views. Definitely a place to have a beer and grab something if you are at agios Nikolaos beach.

In almost all tavernas at the Greek islands they offer watermelon at the end of the meal without charge. This is the first time in my life I was asked to pay 12 euro for a small plate of watermelon!!!!!!! There are far better restaurants in Folegandros.

There are very few spots in the world with a view like this whilst eating fresh delicious food. Both Takis and Paris look after their guests and the dishes are getting better every year. The atmosphere is friendly, buzzy, full of people wanting the best seat over the cobalt blue sea. It's the place to go when you're getting hungry... More
