Nice and fair-prized starters, some brilliant dishes and some flops.
Seaside-Restaurant with a great view on the sea and the mountains beyond, cute blue chairs.
Located in a row with the other local restaurants of Koroni on the main street, next to the restaurant where you can see a grandpa grilling octopus, an orange flower in his hair :)
Nice service, gave us dessert for free and always got some olives at the beginning.
Stayed there for 6 weeks, was one of our favourites.
Favorite Dish: The best dish ever at Flisvos:
-Grilled Stuffed Squid (10€)
First impression: Just Wow... Amazing Size. 2 tightly stuffed medium sized squids with side dish.
Opening: Cut a slice off, the squid was thick and not overgrilled, good quality, inside I could find fresh paprika and greek cheese.
Ending: Oh dear, too much for a lady. Recommend to share it.
-Spicy Cheese Cream
a spicy feta cream, nice starter to go with bread
I was surprised by the fries actually because they were different, not oily at all, guess
they make it with fresh potatoes
This, you really have to try once you are in Greece. Fresh vegetables with the best olive oil and a thick slice of Feta.
It it kinda different type of cheese, it is mostly served fried and is not as soft as Feta.
Schnitzel à la Cream
(It was.. it looked very greasy and not well fried, dry looking Schnitzel with a lot of cream sauce on it. Tried some, not good at all)
Grilled Octopus (11€)
(Some might say, its good, but I woulnd´t pay 11€, which makes it more expensive than the wonderful squid, to get 3-4 single legs.
Not bad, but it was only a plate with fried kalamaris, no sauce or anything, after a while, it tasted boring and fatty.
Seafront taverna, seating across the road from building.
Pleasant ,blue colour scheme.
Plenty of Greeks eating here. Watched finned fish feeding on the waters surface. This excited a group of Greeks so much they jumped into the nearest boat (which hardly seemed seaworthy) and proceeded to attempt to catch the fish with a spear. Naturally they didn't succeed but it definitely provided entertainment for the whole taverna! A very enjoyable lunchtime.
Favorite Dish: We ate grilled octopus here which we had been after for a while. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Also enjoyed the squid.
The local red wine went down well.
Spag. Bol: 5.00eur..
This place has now moved to a corner position with seating across the road by the water. Didn't seem as prominent, to me, nor as popular. We didn't eat here this year.
As this place is just down the road, we felt we ought to give it a go. It serves only grilled foods at this time of the year, so the choice was the usual of chops, souvlaki, bifteki etc etc as well as frozen staples.
The location is just across the road from Memi beach so I expect it will get a fair amount of custom in high season. On our visit, we were lone diners, apart from a Greek mother and daughter.
Good service and excellent souvlaki.
There were swallows nesting here, both outside, under the terrace roof, and in the toilets room. It was lovely to watch the tiny wide open beaks peaking over the top of the nest, as the adults flew in with food. Even the Greeks seemed quite taken with them!!
We also witnessed a full moon as we left here. Quite spectacular, shining over the sea.
Favorite Dish: Large chicken souvlaki:€6.50
Small souvlaki skewers:€1.20
Wine a half:€3 - expensive and the worst we drank all holiday!!
Probably not one of the best places we ate at but not bad. Shame the wine was so poor.
I'm not sure of the real name of this place, but it was a real find!! I fancied this place when we first looked round at eating places, being tucked away off the main routes.
There is seating inside and a lovely courtyard with plenty of tables, under the trees. There isn't a lot of English spoken but you are invited in to look at the array of cooked dishes, displayed in a cabinet. There were always at least six different dishes on offer, as well as grilled foods and frozen stuff. I noticed on our second visit, a menu appeared on a couple of tables, however, we weren't offered one and made our choices from the display and were served far quicker than those choosing from the menu!!
Cats are allowed around the place, but we were politely asked not to feed them or encourage them. There were some tiny kittens in the nearby tree who kept poking their faces out while mum kept a close eye on them. I felt a bit miffed we couldn't feed them but then I came round to the estiotrio's way of thinking. I didn't let it put me off the place, in the end.
Popular with other nationalities. The proprietors are very friendly.
Favorite Dish: Everything we ate was superb. I can't say we ate anything that wasn't good, this year.
Chicken in tomato sauce:€6
Pork in lemon sauce with potatoes:€6.50
Mousaka (enormous portion):€5.50
Soutsoukakia (absolutely delicious, such an array of flavours, the best yet!):€6.00
Wine a half€1.50
A jug of cold tap water comes automatically.
It's difficult to make a decision about where to eat in this area, there being such a choice, even in low season. We opted for this place as it was not far up the road from where we were staying. It turned out to be an excellent choice. A large establishment, it looked fairly new, with seating inside and out, in a see through awning with walls and windows. The place looked down onto the sea and seemed a popular spot with other foreigners.
Not a lot of English is spoken and although a menu is given to you,it's the same old story, only certain cooked items are available. However, what was available suited us, with there being beef , chicken and goat in various sauces, along with various spaghetti dishes and other things I can't remember. Obviously, grilled foods were also definitely on!
I had a great time filming and photoing the owner/cook who was chopping up huge pieces of beautifully crisp pork with a cleaver, for the christening party. Fairly made my mouth water, even though I'd just eaten!!
Don't be put off by the roadworks close by.
Favorite Dish: We ate here twice, the first time we had baby goat in lemon sauce (€8) and an almighty portion that Nick and I shared. It was absolutely delicious! Philip had beef in tomato sauce (€7.50) again enormous and beautifully flavoured.
On our second visit there was a Christening party just arriving so we were a little concerned as to whether we would get served. No problems, this place had got it's act together and as well as catering for the party, service to us foreigners was prompt and efficient!! We ate country cockerel in tomato sauce (€8) My goodness, this must have been some almighty bird!! It was a massive plateful. Philip had spaghetti with tomato sauce (€5.50).
Half kilo wine:€2.50
Cover: No charge for brread and an iced jug of water.
Wonderful value for delicious food.
Our first evening in Koroni, we were tired having just arrived after two days of travelling. We looked at a few menus and opted for Flisvos, purely because the wine was cheaper than other places!! In the end, it turned out to be an excellent choice. We all managed to get what we wanted to eat and huge portions they were!! Nick and I had beef in tomato sauce between us and Philip had spaghetti bolognese. We made the mistake of ordering extra chips as the stiffado came complete with chips. My, we ploughed our way through this mound of extremely good, real chips. No frozen rubbish here.
The only down side to this place was that you are automatically served bottled water, which you pay €1.60 for. You also get served an olive dip with the bread/toast which was excellent.
Right on the harbourside, so good for feeding the fish.
We enjoyed our food so much, we returned the next day for lunch!
Favorite Dish: Beef in tomato sauce: €7
Small mixed plate:€5 (an excellent assortment of tit bits including small fish and cheese and spinach pies.)
Wine a half kilo:€2.50
Really good food with a fair choice of cooked dishes.
Many of the waterfront places are much of a muchness regarding what they serve, it's the quality and prices that vary. We would never order a meal without knowing what we were paying. All the waterfront restaurants have menus, as well as a display board. The boards don't always have prices on, make sure you look at an actual menu to know what you are paying before you settle on any one place.
This was a grill place in the nearby town of Harokopio, recommended to us by an English couple who had stayed in the area.
Only open in the evenings, it's a great place for traditional eating. There are tables outside as well as in and a menu on the wall. This included the usuals like bifteki, chops, chicken, souvlakis etc as well as frozen staples like squid and keftedes.
There were a few items we weren't sure what they were, one was kontosouvli. We discovered this is marinated pork cooked on a long skeer over the spit and carved as required. I really fancied this so on the Friday we were there, our second visit, I asked if it was available.Alas, avrio!!! I like to think it may actually have been served avrio as it would have been Saturday, when the Greeks eat out. Still, I'll never know how good it might have been!!!
Inside were interesting artifacts, like snakes in jars! Also, the design of the WC.was just so that the door opened, succesfully missing the step inside by a cat's whisker.Perfect design......
Favorite Dish: Souvlaki in pita: 1.50 euros
The food was all excellent but the rose wine left a little to be desired!!!
Makes my mouth water thinking aout this!!!
A great littlegyros souvlaki place, set on the back street. On our first visit we had to eat indoors as it was pouring down and on the second, we also ate inside as it was windy. There are a couple of tables squashed into a little anex, room will always be made for you.
A very welcoming atmosphere where Joanna rushes about the place, taking orders and servng while Yiannis is in charg of the cooking.
We had gyros:1.8o
chicken souvlaki: 2.30
Wine half: 2
Coke (tin) 1.30
Also various dishes such as saganaki and frozen stuf as well as peppers stuffed with cheese which we never got round to trying. Pity. If only we had another couple of weeks........
Favorite Dish: Has to be the gyros as I pine for these back in England. The gyros plate was excellent but strangely the tzadziki had no garlic in it, which is odd coming from a French lady!!!!
I do not remember the name of the place but there were many restaurents that were open in Late november which is a Off season. The coffe shop that I visited had real chic decor with loud music. It had a nice selection of coffe and tasty sandwiches. The only thing that I remember for the cafe was that it was all painted orage with a fish theam.
Favorite Dish: The Cafe latte was excellet. my wife had the milk share which she said was heavely.
