    Great food and seamless service plus a unique position downtown Chora makes this well worth a tryout.

    A really wonderful tavern in the middle of a busy square. Great to sit here and watch the whole island go by. Food is amazing. The laxanodolmades especially and the tigania sms the saganaki were great. Service was really efficient.. The order was taken immediately and the food came very fast.. overall fantastic

    At the central square of Chora. Excellent food and amazing service. It should definitely be visited. Fantastic "Melissa" salad and "Melissa" potatoes.

    Nice atmosphere in a wonderful location but the food was nothing special and the service very slow. It took 50 mins for the first starter plate to be served.

    "Melissa" located in the heart of Folegandros Chora, in the second square out of three available in the village. It's a traditional Greek tavern offers some local typical examples like Matsatsa, hand made pasta. Only they made them better that the others. Expect to find queues for dinner time , if you go between 20.00 to 22.00, i think they do not accept reservations.

    Outdoor dining on a bustling square. Well executed Greek fare - I had the grilled kebab which was delicious. Good wine on offer. Nothing too fancy, but definitely does the trick.

    A nice restaurant in choral center. Medium portions. Good for couples. We took a salad which was great and a cheesy appetizer with honey and sesame which was amazing. Two main plates, burgers (mpifteki) and mamas special nest (or something like that. Burgers were average but well cooked. The other plate was amazingly cooked chicken with tomato sauce and mushrooms in a Arabic pita nest. This dish was stunning. Service was good on the delivery but we waited a lot to pay. Overall a pretty good restaurant!

    On our first day in Folegandros we stopped here for lunch and I must admit this was the best lamb I have ever tasted, it was cooked to perfection. The sitting area is on a little raised platform which is shared by another couple of resturants but it does not detract from the experience. It should alos be noted that they sell two types of locally brewed craft beer which I would recommend. It is a change from Mythos and Alpha!

    Used this as our first eatery on the island and was a bit underwhelmed. Service was fine but food came out with time gap in mains and they were not that great.

    We had 2 good dinners at Melissa 's.thknk it's generally crowded situated in middle of town under a huge tree. Not at all expensive, no frills but a good meal.

    This place is such a find. Situated in one of the outrageously picturesque squares in Chora, the setting is magical. The local specialities are cooked by a very confident hand and delicious.The zucchini sticks are moreish, the local lamb is delicious and the local wine is cheap and drinkable. This is one of the nicest experiences I've had in a long time made all the more special by the manager Garrifallia who is charm itself. The waitress Maria is always smiley and efficient and always had time for a little chat.

    One of the few fairly-priced restaurants in Chora of Folegandros (most of them are pricey), and one of the two best "matsata" (local pasta) dishes I had in the island. Very good barbecue, as well, I enjoyed it every single time.

    The food was not bad, but nothing special compared to many of the great meals we've had so far in the islands. And the service was bored and indifferent, although they shut down for the season the next day so that may have had something to do with it.

    Being quite demanding lately i would say is just a tavern. Not bad though.In a 'good' location can offer you a variety of products. A lot of tastes to have but i guess nothing so special without meaning you dont have to try it.
