Margaret and Michael: One Fine Place.....
A great place for a meal. We were warmly welcomed by Margarite and mother? and shown into the kitchen to choose our food. Suprisingly there were areasonble amount of cooked items which was just what we wanted.
Margarite was an excellent linguist and as well as speaking fluent English, we heard her talking to some Swiss in French.
She explained the lack of custom was down to the hydrofoil service finishing two years ago. We really felt for the people who had to make a living in this isolated village. When we were there a party on huge motorbikes arrived who seemed to have Austrian bikes but spoke American. They seemed to be set to an itinerary, having a list of places and routes marked out.
Each time we ate here, Margarite gave us a huge carrier bag full of mandarins and cucumbers from her garden. This seemed to be the norm with all customers!!
If you read this and are in the area, please give her your custom.
Favorite Dish: We had squid, imam (delicious), mixed vegetables, bifteki, keftedes in tom. sauce and always the local wine. All was good and not as expensive as Paralio Astros where we were staying.

You want to taste the greek Kitchen? Here you are.
One of the tavernas that I like is Acropol in Kythathineon Square.
Eat the greek pastitsio, mousaka or kokkinisto (veal with red sauce and fried potatoes), octopus (htapodi in greek), squids (kalamarakia in greek), fava (a product from Santorini), the worldwide famous greek salad, taramosalata and many other things.
Drink retsina or the local wines.
