not for low budget travellers (is this a con???), daytripers from Rhodes fill the island between 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In a nutshell
Great Place To Get Away And Relax
The lunch served up by the boat crew on the boat trip was simply delicious. They came prepared with their giant skewers and grills and cooked delicious chicken served up with all kinds of salads and greek mezzes with wine and retsina all included.
Favorite Dish: all of it!

Jean and Tonic is the late night spot on Symi.
Jean is opening her bar around 10 p.m. and there is talking and drinking until the morning hours.
The saying "getting Jeaned" is very popular on Symi, because in Jean's Bar you sometimes feel like in a time-machine. You want to stop by for one drink and when you walk away the sun's just creeping over the horizon and you ask yourself, where went time???
Visiting Symi and Jean's after months of hard work it's always like coming home to good old friends.
Dress Code: no dress code

As soon as the trip boats arrive and unload their cargo of grockles the restauraters are out in force, waiting to pounce on all and sundry as they troup through the town." Best food, best prices, come and sit down." I hate this. I'm not even allowed to pick up a menu to compare prices without being leapt upon and dragged to a table.The whole town seemed to carry on like this once the boats arrived. Amazingly, as soon as the boats had rounded up their passengers, the restaurants closed their doors and shut up shop until the evening. Lo and behold you if you haven't eaten by this time.
In the evenings we managed to find a better deal, a souvlaki place, but for some reason, this closed at 9.30pm.
The one restaurant we ate at we were over-charged and short changed so not a pleasant memory of Symi.
Unique Suggestions: Either grin and bear this treatment or refuse to be hassled. Try somewhere else where you're not bothered as much. Or make for Pedi instead or have a picnic.
