A typical family taverna with excellent food and service. Food is freshly prepared from a good varied menu. Highly recommend it.

This is a family run taverna and runs like a well oiled machine. Service is first class, the owner is friendly and accommodating always. We never booked but he always found us a table. Even served our drinks before we could ask (we had been there a few times). The food is wonderful and I would recommend the fish soup,... More

We passed by Johnnies as we walked up from the Plaza Hotel, Kanapitsa, to bus stop 12 on the main road from Skiathos Town, and wondered about having a meal there. From the roadside it looked and sounded nothing special, but other hotel guests recommended this taverna, and the reviews were good, so we gave it a try. Though the... More

This place was amazing. The owner was so friendly and the food was out of this world. Well worth a visit as I am sure you won't be disappointed. Not far to walk if staying in the Plaza.

We visited the restaurant, as we had walked past several times and it looked so inviting. We were not disappointed, we were greeted and shown to our table immediately. The staff were very attentive and most pleasant, the service and food was to a superb standard. The atmosphere was also delightful with discreet music in the background, a thoroughly enjoyable...
