Back in 1975, a transformative decision was made to replace the old vineyard with a new restaurant. The result was the creation of an idyllic space, situated right in the midst of the awe-inspiring archaeological site of Ancient Skandeia. The restaurant's location was particularly picturesque, as it was situated in the back of a pristine beach and surrounded by beautiful poplar trees. With this remarkable backdrop, it was clear that Skandeia had the potential to become something truly special.
Over time, Skandeia became more than just a restaurant; the unique blend of archaeological significance, natural beauty, and culinary excellence made Skandeia a destination for locals and visitors alike. It was a place where people could relax and enjoy the nature and the company of others.
As the years passed, Skandeia continued to evolve and grow, while remaining true to its roots. Today, it stands as a testament to the vision and hard work of those who first conceived of the idea back in 1975. With its unparalleled setting and excellent cuisine, Skandeia is a shining example of what can be achieved when passion, creativity, and dedication are brought together in one place.
Skandeia is still run by the same family, Protopsaltis family, that founded it in 1975 and Mrs Evanthia Protopsalti still cooks with fresh local indredients and authentic traditional greek recipes.
Totally renovated and adapted to today’s demands, Skandeia allows each guest to have a warm, friendly experience while enjoying the highest standards of service and food.
