It was first dealt with in Homer’s Odyssey in which the hero strives to get to Ithaca after years of hardship. Odysseus even rejected immortality for the sake of his nostos – the longing of return to where his heart was!
Hence comes Nostalgia – a compound of nostos and algos (ache) – the sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time.
Inspired by Homer and his hero, we created Nostos, aiming to provide our guests with the best of memories, so as to have them feeling immense desire to relive those happy moments of the past to a happy place … Our place … NOSTOS!

Nostos is a Bistro & Café Bar at the beginning of Mylopotas Beach. You can enjoy your brunch, breakfast, lunch or dinner next to the sea of Mylopotas beach which is the most popular beach in Ios! Come and taste our menu from 8:30 in the morning until 1am.
Our atmosphere is universally cozy and welcoming and creates lovely memories for both you and us. All our customers say that when they spend time at Nostos, they feel like they arrived a stranger and left as part of the family. These are sweet words, which just melt our hearts with joy!
