Skopelos at New World


Skopelos opened its doors in 1959 and became a Pensacola tradition, known for fine dining and exceptional service. Helmed by Pensacola Celebrity Chef Gus Silivos, the restaurant has been the recipient of many prestigious awards and has held the honor of serving many well-known personalities, including former President and First Lady, George and Barbara Bush. Skopelos moved to its new home in downtown Pensacola in 2016. Situated on one of the "10 Best Streets in America," the restaurant's decor takes a nod to the history of Pensacola with a menu that utilizes local ingredients and the freshest flavors from the Gulf Coast. In addition to its coastal cuisine with a Mediterranean flair, the restaurant is also renowned for its USDA Certified Steaks, extensive lunch menu, and all-encompassing Sunday brunch buffet. In addition to private dining, Skopelos at New World offers a grand event space, ideal for banquets, weddings, and events within the heart of the city.
