To steki in Ioulis, Kea : a gastronomy paradise
When in Ioulis Kea (Cyclades, Greece) do not miss a beautiful walk in the picturesque small streets of the town. And definitely, if you wish to enjoy high quality, very tasty greek recipies (mum's style) make your reservation at "To steki". The personnel is very friendly and willing to assist you to navigate among the plates. Also, a plus is the wonderful view from above. Mouthwatering plates and a breathtaking view in a hidden diamond called Kea. Not to miss!Nadia

The best choice for food in Kea, do not miss it!
I wish there was a 6th circle to rate restaurants like this one. I also wish my English were better so that I could really pass the feeling to readers of this review.I went my wife, she had already visited the place twice 2 years ago, so I was prepared for the view. But I was certainly not prepared for the delicious meals and the quantities of them. 2018 has been a year where I visited many restaurants as newly married, and felt many times disappointed by the quality of food, let aside prices... This place really respects its customers to a degree that many famous restaurants in Athens should do.Very polite waiters, in a very friendly manner that make you believe they really mean what they say when they give advises about your order.EXCELLENT food! Yes, really excellent, all of them...The salad was perfect (and enough for 4 people), the "EGGPLANT SHEAF" (we took the last available piece and felt blessed), the GOAT SPAGHETTI (I hate goat, I hate the smell, I hate the ones who order it when having food with me, but the waiters convinced me to order it and yes, you have no issue at all despite your justified hate for goat, lambs etc... if you wish to order spaghetti do not hesitate for a moment), and finally a "kid meal" that was enough for the whole class, delicious chicken ribs with fried potatoes.What I cannot yet understand is why we were told that portions are small... We would be totally ok if we had ordered the salad and a main course, and I really mean it. We took with us almost all ribs and half spaghetti to continue at home after midnight! Meaning that even if you do not wish to spend much money you have no issue at all.Once again, congratulations guys! Hope to see you soon!

A small restaurant with an emphasis on fine wines from the whole of Greece. Modern Greek & Mediterreanean cuisine utilising ingredients from Kea, the Cyclades and the mainland

Good service, nice view but the food was dissapointing. My fish was so small for main course goof only for starter and generally is expensive.

Rolandos and Philosophy
The food was delicious - The lamb was cooked to perfection and the plate was extremely generous- and reasonable. Rolandos son entertained us in between serving with his philosophical discussions - He makes movies when he’s not working in the restaurant during the winter months. It was fun. I was there with my sister and her husband. They look bed their fish and the goat in lemon sauce was a hit with my brother in law. So looking forward to going back there again

Service, food, location. Super.
There are other restaurants around, but this one seems to be the best value for money. Very helpful and courteous -and informative- service. Nice setting on a main square. GOOD Greek food in large portions. Mushroom pie (huge), Paparounas salad (huge), kebab (huge), fries (big), honey-crust cheese pies, stuffed tomatoes, zucchini balls, spaghetti bolognese (huge), and complementary kopanisti spicy cheese and xyno cream cheese, 4 beers and a lemonade, all for 75€? For this island it’s the best dinner we’ve had! Don’t think twice. This little kitchen does wonders.

Highly frequented taverna at the main entrance to the Hora of Kea (Ioulida). We went there after a recommendation by friends but were somehow disappointed. Although the menu has a special mention to local dishes the food was not at all exceptional. We had the Imam Baildi (cooked eggplants with tomato and garlic sauce), which was overcooked, soggy and swimming in oil. The eggplants, although it is the best season for them now, were not very good and contained lots of seeds, which makes them a little bitter. Then we had the "Paspalas", that is pork in a mash of tomatoes, eggs and cheese, which was good. Also just good was the mushroom pie.The service was indifferent and careless, done mostly by two teenagers.Question of taste is the sitting at this very crowded place where all the traffic (bikes, pedestrians) of the village is passing by.Prices at the normal level of the island.I'd recommend going to one of the very good restaurants a little further up the main street of the village.

The Magazes restaurant is located in Korissia, the main port of the island of Kea (Tzia) in Greece. We serve fresh sea food, including grilled fish, fish soup and lobster pasta from lobsters caught daily by our local fishermen from the beautiful blue wate

Inferior to expectations - in contrast to the reviews available
We chose to visit Magazes on our last night of a short trip to Kea. The other two dinner choices we had made the previous days were excellent, but at Magazes, we were let down.First, the service was poor, to the level that we had the following conversation:"The Tziwtiko (from Kea) sausage looks tempting; what are some of its ingredients?""How should I know"was the response from the waiter...The food was OK but nothing special, and the portions of the starters were fairly small/average, whereas the quality was nothing special. The beef burgers were full of spices, to the level that makes you suspicious about the quality of the meat.We found it overproced for the quality of food and the overall experience - 65 euros for two people for a full dinner -without dessert or wine though.Finally, I would like to make the point that many of the 5-star reviews come from accounts with 1 review only in their history. This makes me suspicious, especially the quality of the establishment did not appear to us as such that would motivate a visitor to create a TripAdvisor account only to write about their eexperience here.We apologize for the way the waiter responded it is not what we stand up for. This obviously effects the way you see the rest of your diner at our restaurant. Secondly the meat patties are made with local fresh daily cut beef and are not covered up by herbs in order for us to sell old or frozen product, to suggest this is insulting. You could cancel the order instead or we could show you the invoice of the specific day you had dinner. If the meat was the way you suggest then it would bother your stomach before your diner was finished, we have most customers with toddlers so this is of great importance for us to have the freshest products. This is why we have only beef in the meat patties which also lowers the profit margin on the specific plate. As for the reviews with 1 they are mostly people who have not been members before due to age and little knowledge of internet but most of these people have been loyal customers to our restaurant in their free time as well as satisfied. I apologize for the incorrect attitude, the Kean or Tziotiko sausage has smoked pork aged in wine and mixed with local herbs like oregano and thrumbi. Best regards, Stephanos.

Was there for afternoon drinks and cocktails. The place is across the marina where you can enjoy your afternoon drinks gazing the yachts. Good ambiance and staff was very friendly. The drinks were ok. Don't do the mistake and order waffles. You can't get it more wrong...

The taste was ok but our stomach had problem 2 hours later
We tried some different options like scampi and octapus, everything was ok, the taste was ok, nothing special but ok. 2 hours later our stomach was really bad, most probably because of the oil of the fried scampi and etc.
