We were pretty lucky to discover Petalo as soon as we arrived in Symi, what a great place for a swim and endless sunbathing! We visited three times at total but we run out of time to try their dinner, next year for sure!

The service is top notch, as well as everything we tried. Try the cold flat white espresso and the club sandwich. If you visit later for drinks, the Petalo cocktail was refreshing and unique, but all the classics were great as well.

A must visit if you stay at Symi, for sure!

We came with my boyfriend just three days in Symi the previous September and we can't wait for coming again this summer.
Amazing place in front of the beach and delicious food. We still remember the pasta with skaros fish, the fish was so fresh! Also, we enjoyed the signature Petalo cocktail. We definitely recommend it!

We came to Symi Island on a day trip by ferry and had lunch at Petalo. The seafood was amazing and the views were very beautiful. Next to this relaxing resturant/bar there are sunbeds and bean bags for those who want to go swimming before or after having some tasty food. It is approximately a 10min walk to the ferry terminal which makes it extra-relaxing as it is away from the busy cafes and restaurants. The food is pricey but worth the taste.

I wish I'd found this place earlier. As it was, it was the perfect way to spend a few hours lounging with a beer before catching the afternoon ferry.
I imagine it's hugely popular in high season with the yacht crowd but in late September it was quiet and peaceful.
It exudes quality with its plush sun-loungers and teak decking and is a world away from some of the tackier bars/eateries in Symi. I wasn't adventurous with my food choice but the club sandwich was succulent and tasty.

I'm not a "Nikki Beach" kind of person but this harbour-side bar/restaurant might just have changed my mind.
A welcome addition to Symi's somewhat moribund restaurant/bar scene.

What a stunning setting.you are all of yalous harbour lit up at night.absolutley beautiful. We were also lucky to have a new moon visible in top of the hill. The taverna is beautifly set out in a modern style.the staff were friendly efficient and knowledgeable about the menu.we had sea bass with a celariac cream and veg.and seabream in a mussel and shrimp sauce both were fantastically cooked and sumptuous in taste. For desert we had Greek dougnuts in honey and nuts.out of this world. The best place to eat in the post.the price was reasonable 65 euros including wine I would thoroughly recomend this taverna
