We eat lunch there, I ordered the Caesar salad without chicken. It was as very good and big portion with a lot of delicious Parmesan and lots of bacon! The staff was very friendly and we got the food quickly.

There are many alternatives for breakfast in Hydra. IN Greece typically it doesn't matter which restaurant you pick for most are quite acceptanle and thus you rarely go wrong with your choice. Skipper unfortunately was an exception. My company did not gfeel the same but I did not like the breakfast at all. Very very slow service. Food is ordinary.... More

After the ferry from Athens-Piraeus we stopped at this open air café for refreshments. Those who had hot drinks were not impressed, the coffees being pedestrian and not necessarily real hot. My Coke was fine but it's hard to mess up a bottled drink. There are three or four places literally chair to chair on the harbor front--lots of boat... More

We visited Hydra on a Sunday. After the ferry trip and a visit to the museum we decided a coffee would be good. My latte was small and fairly tasteless. My wife's regular ("filter") coffee was weak. The hot water for a companion's tea was tepid. Her husband's coca cola was fine. Nice view, nice ambience. Might try the Skipper... More

We had lunch at Skipper Café while we were in Hydra. We had a Caesar Chicken salad which was excellent. The location in OK, the only issue it is near the water taxi drop off so the boat fumes could be a bit over whelming. The service was good and the food is reasonably priced.

If you like great food and like to experience local cuisines don't come here. If you like fantastic views and nice drinks then this is the place for you. I love food and did not come to a Greek island to eat a burger and chips. Having said this, the service was fine when we had drinks and olives. For... More

What a let down. We have had such great experiences with TripAdvisor recommendations on this trip the Hydra and this missed the mark on so many levels. -Service was very poor despite not a very busy evening. We attempted to flag down our waiters and they seemingly purposefully kept walking by our table as we were waving to them. They... More

This restaurant/café doesn´t look like much but it serves great food. In our view this was the best of all the many restaurants in Hydra Harbour! Try the Skippers Burger or the Greek pizza (with Salami) for instance!! The personell is good too!!
