As in most of Greece's overdeveloped tourist resorts, cafes, fast-food stands, and overpriced restaurants abound, but there are also plenty of good -- even excellent -- eateries in Skiathos town. Some of the best-regarded restaurants are above the west end of the harbor, around Trion Ierarchon church.

A Local Favorite in Skiathos -- I think the best-kept secret of Skiathos town is the little outdoor cafe at the tip of the promontory with the Bourtzi fortress, a 5-minute stroll from the harbor. Removed from the glitter of the town, you can sit and enjoy a (cheap) drink in the cool of the evening and watch the ships come and go: This is the Aegean lifestyle at its best.
