Description: The nest is the home of Ios’ very own Greek Taverna-restaurant. We offer an authentic taste of Greek cuisine using traditional methods. We are confident you will not taste better Greek cuisine and international food anywhere else in Ios with such good service and reasonable prices. We are family run and family friendly restaurant, featuring authentic Greek food & international food since 1964.

Front of house was run by possibly the friendliest Greek gentleman I have ever met - nothing was too much trouble. He greeted us as if we were long lost cousins. I'm sure he does this for everyone, but it really made the difference in a location where every other building was a bar or restaurant. The food was all very typically Greek; all freshly produced. Service was excellent, as was the price. Within 30 mins of arriving (8pm, just out of season), the restaurant was full.

A wonderful little find in the heart of IOS. Friendly and accommodating staff. Delicious home cooked Greek food. Great serving sizes. Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in IOS. A wide selection to choose from, recommend ordering a few different dishes and sharing.

We had a great meal at Nest - the service was fast, the food good, and the restaurant was clean and cool. Our group of 6 enjoyed our meal here and would return. We ordered about 10 plates all to share and were satisfied with every choice. It is perfectly located in Chora.

Having read reviews and asked around I visited here for my last meal on the beautiful Ios.
I was delighted to see they had my favourite greek dish on the menu so I ordered Kleftico....
It came in it's dish looking wonderful and the smell was awesome. Then I looked for that beautiful slow cooked lamb that falls apart instead there are lumps of rubber that's the only way to correctly describe the chewy tough lumps of meat.
I removed the meat and ate the veg which was tasty.
The waitress did say she was sorry I didn't like my food ... I paid and left never to return

Family run restaurant, the service here is great, very attentive.

Food was ok, Pitta bread was great, but the spinach and feta pies weren't great unfortunately they weren't crispy and didn't have much flavour, the deep fried potato tasted ok, and the pork stew wasn't too bad, but I've had a lot better food at other places that I've eaten at in Ios.

Maybe the choices I made wasn't their best dishes.
