We stopped at Lord Byron for a drink every night. The ladies who worked there talked with us as we had known them for ages. We really liked the place. The last evening we stopped for a dinner. The food was OK, but I will rather recommend to have a drink there.

I ate the best pork in my life, I almost had an orgasm eating this meal, all my friends that who were with me wanted to try it when they saw my happy face. The place was an indication of the Mediterranean Hotel Staff. I really enjoyed this restaurant.

This restaurant is busy, and you can see why. It is quirky, well thought out, the staff know their business, and the food is great as well. The portions are a good size to say the least. The Feta fondue starter and the Lobster Risotto were superb. Very enjoyable, good atmosphere and staff who care.

Delicious meal at Lord Byron. Amazing atmosphere, and great service. Bacon wrapped dates and fava were incredible! Highly recommend the lobster risotto as well.

This was an outstanding restaurant the staff worked as a team and focussed on ensuring complete customer satisfaction despite being very busy the staff still had time to talk. It had a very cosmopolitan atmosphere and the decor was a little quirky. The staff too seemed from all over Europe. It was by far the most exciting and vibrant place... More

The food was excellent probably the best we had in the island, we had to go a second time. Get the crab pasta and the chocolate soup, they're fantastic! The staff is super friendly and the whole atmosphere is great.

Our waiter was Greek but most of the rest of the staff was not so if you feel like having an "authentic" feeling Greek experience, don't go here. The food was very delicious (especially the lobster risotto, yummm). Good thing the outside seating area was fully booked, otherwise we would have never sat inside and witnessed the charming and fun... More

This restaurant had the most savory food and the best drinks by far on the whole island. The atmosphere is one of a kind - decor is lively and comfortable and the waiters work hard to make it a pleasant experience. Molly, the owner, is inviting, friendly, and a wealth of information for your visit to Ios. We ate at... More
