A wonderful place to stop for lunch after walking up the to castle. The prices are reasonable and the food is cooked with flair and finesse. The surroundings are beautiful and the views are fantastic.

Fabulous food, goat on a wood fired grill and dakos to start, the best I have ever eaten. Free minibus service from Livadia and wonderful views over the plateau as night fell. Great service from the team.

What a fantastic place. The environment, the food and the service were very good. The restaurant offers a minivan service that can pick you up and then return you.

It came as a pleasant surprise to find that we could easily get up to Megalo Chorio for a meal; just go to Eleni's supermarket and find the minibus. If it isn't there go inside and ask! Better still it is completely free and you get to see a bit more of the island as the sun goes down. The... More

Place worth a visit. Set in Megalo Horio (there's even a special mini bus to take visitors from/to Livadia) with astonishing views of the mountains, sea and adjacent island. We were pleasantly surprised with the choice on the meniu-some Greek dishes that are not available in other tavernas. Another good thing about the meniu - it has proper English translations!:)...

Since this year there is a bus from Livadia to this restaurant in Megalo Chorio, we found this pleasant and a good idea :-) The view of the restaurant is really great with a beautiful sunset. Very tasty food and so greek, we liked it very much.
