On what seems to be our annual trip to Hydra, we again had to eat at Techne. From the cocktails to the wine and meals (and particularly the galaktoboureko) everything was perfect. We ate here three times while on Hydra, enjoying the view and meals...More

We were a company of six friends. If you're looking for something different from the above average touristic classic Greek food restaurant, I highly recommend this one. It serves Greek food with a modern twist. Everything we ordered was very tasty and fresh. The atmosphere...More
