      UESMayor:
      I know Milos is expensive but their prix fixe pre-theater rate is $49 which actually isn't all that bad.
      I also know that Milos tends to keep their foods simple without too many rich sauces and ingredients. This appeals to me.
      However, some of the reports have been negative in the past and I am wondering if anyone has been there lately who could weigh in.

        Milos definately. I think UES Mayor summed it up perfectly. Milos' fried calamari is great.. The oil is light and the calamari are cut and fried to order...so good!!

        I always order the Royal Dorado..so good!

        Enjoy

          Milos - definitely. It's expensive but worth it.

            if budget is not an issue, Milos. i enjoy both and suggest both on this site. Molyvos does have an excellent pre-fix menu and it is much cheaper than milos. you cannot go wrong with either.

              Thanks for your replies.
              It sounds like I'd better let my mate make the final decision.
              Unless someone comes in here with a negative post, I am leaning toward Milos.

            Definitely Milos. Fresh ingredients and doesn't have the touristy feel of Molyvos.

              If you have the cash, Milos. Molyvos is less expensive but still very good. Milos is special though... and pricey.

                We cannot thank you all enough for your comments.
                Thanks to your expertise, my mate has made his choice.
                Milos it is.
                Will report.

                  You go girl!!! Milos is soooo good!! The tomatoes are great too, especially this time of year, I think they import those as well!

                  Have fun!!
