Amazing staff and food was excellent. Service is on par with what you’d expect from a fancy restaurant. The sunset views are amazing, definitely book around sunset time and enjoy a drink by the pool!
Not a great evening. I understand there can be a mix up with communication and language but nothing went right. We arrived a little early, we were welcomed, we offered our names and explained that we had a dinner reservation. In return, we were told to “sit anywhere” so we did, but then we were moved on as those seats at the bar were reserved. Had a pleasant drink with my girlfriend during sunset and then asked to be seated. Only to be shown the original seats at the bar that we were moved on from. The main issue with this is the fact there were about 30 knot gusts coming from the north, which are not enjoyable to sit in. However, in hindsight, I can see how a request for a table at the front of the restaurant could be considered/interpreted as sitting at the front of the pool. We asked if it was possible to be seated inside because of the wind and it was explained that the restaurant was at full capacity and it could not be accommodated. So we sat in the cold wind and ordered. Now the food, al la carte - first courses were far superior to the mains, however they are extremely small. The ravioli and the gnocchi were tasty and executed well, but in the wind turned cold quickly. Then my girlfriend and myself sat in the wind for quite a while, it was explained to us that there was a “technical issue” with the kitchen. Not quite sure what this means. Usually it means that it was forgotten to be cooked. When the main courses arrived, the grouper and the John Dory were small and not executed well. I would be surprised if the grouper was fresh. To me it seemed frozen. The John Dory had a pistachio crumb that was floury and needs to be pan seared as opposed to baked in a broiler. These also turned cold quickly due to the wind gusts. The most disappointing part of the evening was when I asked for the cheque at 21:14, I walked over from the bar to the restaurant to see if it truly was at full capacity and I saw at least 5 empty tables. The excuse being that many people are “delayed.” Being the hospitality industry, this was the least hospitable act of the night, being sat in strong gusts of wind for no reason at all for two hours. I hope these tables stay unfilled all night. With the bill for the night being €114 for two first and two mains courses, my suggestion would be to eat elsewhere as fresher ingredients, cheaper and tastier dishes are served through the island. For what was meant to be a memorable night in Ios, i wouldn’t dream to recommend Grandmas House Restaurant to anyone. What I can only suggest is that with so many empty tables at 9pm, many other patrons have caught on to the substandard nature of this restaurant and are speaking through actions of booking and enjoying a meal elsewhere.
One of the must experiences during your visit in Ios. If you want the best view on the island accompanied with delicious food, this is the place for you! Don’t forget to try the tiramisu...
