We went to symposium most nights and never had a bad meal. How anyone could say that the staff are anything less than fantastic is beyond me! They were all lovely and could not be more friendly and helpful. The food was always good and I knew the menu off by heart by the time we left. Everyone obviously works extremely hard. Nobody seemed to have a night off the whole time we were there. The singers are great. The lady who owns the little boutique around the corner told us that the fella who plays the piano and sings was a very well known musician in Greece and had been big in his time. All in just a fab place that we could not recommend highly enough. Great food and fantastic people!
The best setting for an evening meal! What a fabulous place to eat in by the seafront, It looks very posh with its pink and white table settings.
Nice setting,nice view,nice piano player,but that was about it,went the once never again,service was ok,food not so good,
On our third night in the lovely town of Skala we went to Symposium restaurant and were greeted by the joint owner Kerry with a big friendly smile. We were shown to our well presented table and given the menus. The attentive waiter offered to explain any dishes that we didn't understand. After ordering, our food was brought to the table within about 10 minutes. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed despite the slightly dodgy singing from the piano player. The food was tasty except for one dish of Tuna which was thin and dry, the prices were reasonable. There was a lovely view of the sea and Ithika to accompany our meal. The waiters were efficient and happy to help if needed. We went to Symposium on a number of occasions for breakfast and evening meal. I would recommend this restaurant to any visitor to Skala.
We were recommended to Symposium by our rep and were disappointed. The setting is perfect and we were impressed to begin with. Starters were ok but nothing special, mains were very bland. Throughout the whole meal we felt very rushed, we had no sooner put our knives and forks down adn the next course was there, then when we had finished eating and were just finishing our drinks the staff stared at us as if they couldn't wait for us to leave. Very pricey for the standard of food, will not be going here again
. we loved the look of this restaurant & booked thinking this would be the highlight meal of our week in skala, & it was for all the wrong reasons! it was the most expensive & unfriendly place we went to & the food very mediocre, it is a shame because previous posts claim it as delicious food, perhaps the chef has moved on?
DO NOT BE MISLEAD BY THE BEAUTIFUL SETTING!
Terrible! I don't think I have ever been so disappointed in a restaurant in my life. The restaurant looked very nice from the outside, spacious, clean, relaxed. The food was TERRIBLE, my partner and I ordered Meze as a starter. Yes it had taiziki and dolmides, followed by deep fried cheese and ham spring rolls, deep fried feta cheese samosa, and a piece of deep fried cheese?!?!?!?!!?!!?!? The starter and main both arrived within minutes of each other so they were not cooked to order. And why was there a man playing piano?? Out of context, out of place, bad experience.
Not very impressed. Look's nice with lovely white table cloths a man playing the piano but the food came too quick like less than 5 mins so you know it wasn't cooked fresh. Chicken dried up & calves liver also dry.
Went here for our daughters 17th birthday meal and it was excellent, very quick and friendly service
What a fantastic place to eat. The food is gorgeous and the service is second to none. It's very reasonably priced and the setting is lovely - there's nothing like looking out onto a moonlit beach whilst you eat your dinner. Definitely my favourite place to eat in Skala.
We ate here three times this year and to be honest they were the best meals we has all holiday. The surroundings have been described as 'goldfish bowl like' but this is quite frankly untrue.
Loved this restaurant. Best setting ie over-looking the beach. You can book - it gets soo busy especially after 9. we got a table at 8 and there was only one other couple in there! Very good service and not hugely expensive bearing in mind setting and overall ambience of restaurant ie music/candles/table settings etc. Starters fairly expensive but worth it. Steak was cooked to perfection (with prawns) about 18 euros. pasta with 4 cheeses only about 9 euros. Would have def gone back if there longer and probably booked a table for after 9 to get more ambience ie with candles and piano playing. Simply a restaurant you must visit.
Symposium - what a terrific night at this place. food, drinks and staff were excellent. If you read this best wishes to Sam and Thanassi (sorry about the spelling!) keep up the good stuff from your aeroplane buddies.
The new restaurant is called 'SYMPOSIUM'.
Top notch for lunch, right on the beach, ice cold beer, and the best calamari in town.
Generally had lunch here, the best calamari we found anywhere, pretty much faultless and ideally located on the beach.
excellent location right on the beach. We ate there 5 nights out of 7 and they also do take aways. Once they get to know your face you also get discounts!! The food is gorgeous and well worth the money, with a variety of greek, english and italian dishes (also quite cheap compared with other restaurants). They are also very accommodating for small children and dont mind them running around! Very highly recommended!
Lunch time eating place. Do a great omelette & cooling glass of beer right next to the Tara Beach Hotel just across from the beach.
We had several lunches in Luckys,mainly salads and pizzas. The pizzas are excellent we enjoyed sitting eating lunch with a ice cold beer and enjoying the fantastic view of the beach.
