Overlooking the church bell towers, mountain and harbor, Veranda provides a romantic vista in an intimate setting. And that view is only enhanced with one of their extremely well-made cocktails. It may seem counter-intuitive for a Greek Island, but there are several Italian options on Hydra. Veranda is the upper end. But to get to that upper end aerie you’re going to have to climb some stairs—a lot of them. Seems a bit silly to get sly about stairs on Hydra, the village built on stairs, but Veranda may hold the record. Although not especially crisp, the service is personable, the pasta presented in generous portions, the greeting warm, and the wine at correct temperatures. Although spaghetti rules the menu, there are a few other fish options. We thought the bream carpaccio itself was well worth the climb.

Once you navigate the stairs, which can be challenging, this is a marvelous place with splendid vistas, great food and wonderful candle lit ambiance. Our dinner was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. But, my caution about the stairs is real! They are super challenging both at the front door and at the back. The back stairs are really scary, so do be careful.

A lovely relaxed meal experience, good service, no rushing to get you finished through the meal. We had spicy octopus which was beautiful and a Greek salad, always a winner. Main course we had pasta dishes, both were lovely. The view from the restaurant is stunning and watching the moon rise over the hill will be a sight to remember

My husband and I had a lovely and romantic dinner at the Veranda. We had an amazing view of the harbor while we drank the best cocktails we had in Hydra. The service was attentive and the food was great. We had numerous Greek salads on our trip but this was the freshest and best prepared. My husband had a grilled salmon steak that was flavorful and buttery. Highly recommended.
