We enjoyed our stay at Michalis for the first two weeks in August 2004 it's,in a quiet road with only 2 mins down to the beach or 5 mins via the Roman Villa. Our room at the front was clean and tidy if a little small, if you want a larger room ask for one at the rear. Shops are all nice and close as are the resturants. There are no safety deposit boxes but you could use another appartments boxes very close by.
What a brill guy, nothing was to much trouble for him, read the other comments, I don't have to say anything else.
We ate here twice during our holiday, and found the owner to be charming the staff polite and cater for your every need. We tend to eat a lot later at night than some holiday brits, but never had any problems getting a table. It is more of a Mediterranean resturant than a Greek one so if you go treat it as such. You pay a little more but in my opinion you get a little more than other resturants in the resort.
Ate here once, it was OK but that was all, Food arrived to soon and no setteling time between courses. Other people we spoke to said they liked it, so did we catch them on a bad night?
You'll find a friendly welcome at the Gallera. Their tastfully furnished resturant (no paper table coths here) offered some of the freshest food we ate during our stay in Scala.There was a wide range on the menu. Worth trying for starters are the cheese stuffed peppers or squid. We couldn't fault any dish we had but their Kleftico and Stifado take some beating, washed down with a presentable jug of house wine at about 6 Euros a litre.
Socrates was about the only tradional family taverna we found in Scala. It always had a good mix of Greeks and other holiday makers. The food had a real home cooked flavour. Apart from their main menu, there was always a list of specials, which changed each day. It was from this list we tried to choose. We can recommend the stuffed aubergines, briam, rabbit or little fish. We were never hurried by the friendly staff who greeted as friends each time we visited.
We put off a visit to the Sunrise as we thought it didn't look too appealing for an evening meal, however after several other guests reccomendations we ventured along the beach road at night. It is well worth the walk. We shared and enjoyed two mezes one meat and one fish. both good value and good food, the only down point was the price of their wine which made the meal above average in price, however who can count the cost of a beautiful meal sitting in the moon light by the beach.
It is a shame that this resturant with it's beautiful beach side setting is only open for breakfast and lunch. We enjoyed a tasty lunch on our last day at Scala we felt it was slightly more expensive than some resturants.
What a brill guy, took the time to explain everything and was genuine. Just read all the other positive comments.
Its worth the walk back after dark to visit only one of two resturants on the beach, it does not look too inviting from the front even during the day but get inside and it is lovely. We had the meze starter and the fish meze both were more than enough for both of us. The only drawback is the cost of the house wine which did boost up the bill, but did not detract from a lovely meal. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner and his family.
