A very wide menu choice. The taverna, as the name suggests, is on the beach with beautiful views. The food here is magnificent and service first class. Always something to watch in the bay.

Best to book early to get beachside table for the views (make sure its daylight.then watch the sun go down). Menu is good but more choice would be nice. Quality is good as is the service. Not cheap more mid range

We stopped off here for lunch one day, set right on the beach. The food was lovely but the service was a little on the surly-side, perhaps just because it was at the end of the season.

Slightly confusing as 2 businesses under one roof. No consistent signal so unable to take card payments, rather inconvenient when paying for dinner for a large group. However- the food was amazing, and the service very good.

This is a great beach bar & taverna that really comes alive at night. Take a water-bus to Kanapitsa Beach or take the bus to Bus-Stop 12 and visit this taverna.

This taverna was our first choice as it is situated opposite the Plaza Hotel where we stayed. It is right on the water’s edge and is a romantic place to eat with Greek music playing softly in the background. The service and food is excellent, so it is highly commended. It can also be reached by water taxi from Skiathos... More

We only ate there one evening but the food was very good. The waiters were very friendly. The setting was fab as it is right on the beach. Well worth a visit.

Every year we come back to Kanapitsa, and every year we are not disappointed. Great food in a lovely setting. The family upgrade the restaurant each year, and this year they even have a retractable roof for shade. Kanapitsa water sports are right next door.
