Thea's restaurant not only has amazing and fresh traditional Greek food, but the servers there and Thea herself were so kind and took great care of us. I went with my high school to visit the island and we ate at Thea's restaurant most nights we were there. We tried almost everything on the menu, and all of it was amazing, from the Greek salad to the more traditional vegetable dishes that are made with produce from the restaurants garden. To top it all off the restaurant had a very beautiful view of the sea, and a warm friendly environment. I highly recommend visiting Thea's restaurant when in Ikaria! :)

We ate here last night and had a lovely meal. The chef patron welcomes you and explains the menu, which he cooks from the heart. There are traditional, family and innovative recipes. We had fantastic burnt aubergine dip, carrot dip, followed by home made spicy sausage and the most superb calves liver sauté with a mouth watering sauce. The house wine was also good. The setting is peaceful overlooking the sea and we had a wonderful time. The meal was followed by delicious polenta cake coffee and home made herb brandy on the house. Such a lovely restaurant ~ highly recommend! Nothing is too much trouble the chef who truly wants his guests to welcome

Homemade Greek traditional food cooked always with love made with local fresh ingredients. Since 2005.

Apart from the beautiful terrace and the friendly service we have nothing positive to say about its cuisine. Too much oil; unnecessarily big portions; tasteless dishes. We had an assortment of appetisers none worth mentioning and I had maybe the worst spaghetti with minced meat ever.

Been here while in Armenistis, is one really nice raver with a breathtaking view on the sea. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, staff is really nice (they show u what’s for dinner directly from pans and baskets in the kitchen. Food is delicious and it’s easy to understand the cooks love their job. Prices are a bit over the average range but this taverna worth a visit.

Reviewed By Or B

The location is nice, right on the waterfront. This is where the compliments end, unfortunately. The food was overpriced (approximately 30%-40% more than comparable places), and was the opposite of the wonderful Ikarian food we ate all over the island - pretentious but not tasty. not recommended.Dear Or B,Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our restaurant. We believe that every visitor's opinion is vital to the future success of Kritikos. However, our kitchen is completely different as modern greek fusion compared to all the other restaurants in the area! In addition, it would be very helpful for us to understand what you did not really like, making you more specific about what you chose to eat and did not satisfy you, to have the chance to improve it in the future. If you were directly addressed to the restaurant manager, we would surely have avoided your dissatisfaction, something you did not, leaving us just a big question mark.

Passed through here on the way back to Evdilos. Heard about the hype and didn’t disappoint. Service was friendly and calm. Music was of good quality. Food tasted amazing and wine was lovely (maybe not their local red but the white was yummy). I’m giving them 5 stars more so because of the effort they put in to make us happy. Well appreciated and very thankful. Would definitely come back!

Come to O Sotiris when they have music and join in the dancing. When the space by the band isn't enough it spreads out onto the road, just occasionally pausing to let through a car or two. I've been there many times - come and join us.
