AMFITRION Traditional Greek Tavern -EDIPSOS: Highly Recommended -Seafood Ouzeri
The restaurant “Amfitrion” is a traditional Greek seafood restaurant ‘ouzeri’ that locals urged me to visit. I was lucky that we came here because by the time we left we had the feeling that we have made a new friend.Mrs. Dina the lady who owes this ouzeri, is an excellent cook, a cheerful lady and we felt so close that we even asked her to join us for a while. We are here for appetizers or ‘meze’ in reality and this is what a customer can find in similar ‘ouzeri’.We decided to have tsipouro here (local drink similar to raki). We let the owner recommend a few of her best dishes matching with what we were drinking. Tsipouro costs 1.50 per portion.We had the simplest authentic but freshest salad brought to us – fresh tomato and cucumber with Greek black olives -a treat from the owner to accompany our tsipouro. I did not even bother to sprinkle oil on top. –Aromatic and tasty!The next dish...
TA PLATANIA -Taverna/Mezedopolio-EDIPSOS: Fresh ingredients, Impeccable Service, Tasty Food!
We are here for a week in Edipsos and in an attempt to find a good restaurant for lunch the first day we arrived, the owner of the 9 Queens Spa Hotel we are staying recommended this one.“PLATANIA” is a corner restaurant nicely decorated with style and character and very near where we are staying these days. The area is also called Platania. So, we came here for lunch and honestly we did not regret it.“Platania” serves also as a ‘koutouki’ as we call it in Greek. We heard that everything is fresh and that it is among the popular ones in the city of Edipsos. With the word ‘koutouki’ we mean that the customer can be served Ouzo and Tsipouro and ask for ‘pikilia’ –meaning a variety of smaller portions of different appetizers. I love to have a variety, thus I get the whole picture of what the place has to offer. Of course it serves beer and wine!When I am out traveling and I want to eat out I...
TA NOUFARA -Seafood Tavern-EDIPSOS: Fresh Tasty Seafood -You Ought to Try It.
Noufara is a Seafood tavern located on the main seafront Avenue of Edipsos.I found about it through locals. It is very close to where we are staying –the Thermae Sylla Spa & Wellness Hotel and since we had lunch at the hotel earlier, we came here to combine a nice evening outing with some fresh Seafood and Ouzo. We had a stroll fist along the beach waiting to watch the sunset but when we noticed that this Seafood Tavern extends to the other side of the road which is so close to the beach we decided to sit. I thought I could take a photo while eating. Unfortunately for us and all the rest who were there, it was quite chilly so by the time the sun set behind the mountains it was cold and like all the rest we moved closer to the entrance.I love seafood especially if it is fresh and we heard that the restaurant is reliable and what we would have would certainly be the catch of the day. This...
Armenizontas: just greek!
This restaurant was in a side street and I suppose I was attracted by the rather traditional facade, I was not disappointed the food here was very good. The waiter was very pleasant and coped admirably with all the tables by himself and we did not have a long wait and he was very pleasant too. Also some customers came only to drink and were served delicious snacks to go along with their drinks.
We had burgers here as only the greeks can make homemade burgers, very tasty and also the tomato keftedes were delicious.
BATIS seafood Tavern –Nea Lampsakos!: Everything is fresh..try the Pikilia and Saganaki!
Batis at Nea Lampsakos is an old Seafood tavern very popular and worth visiting. It is found at Nea Lampsakos, the first village to the south of Chalkida. Everything is fresh here and the seashells are alive, move when some drops of lemon is poured on them.It is popular not only to locals and people from the round area but also from people coming from Athens to have lunch or dinner here. Ask for a pikilia and order some ouzo. What you get is fresh and smells sea!!Pikilia for two cost 15 euro, and it includes octopus, shells, prawns etc.Karafaki which is the small bottle of ouzo costs 7 euro - of course it depends to the quality and brand. Saganaki (prawns in tomato sauce) cost 8 euro, and prawns cost 10 euro. An echinus salad is brought in a small dish with lemon and oil, it is a bit pricy (10 euro) but it is fresh and very delicious. Angelos and Andromachi are the second generation...
PARALIA Taverna: The Chicken Kebab is Unbeatable here!
The many lights hanging all over the “PARALIA” Taverna attracts the attention of every passer. The taverna is located at 10 Voudouri street on the promenade waterfront pedestrian road next to the Lucy Hotel in Chalkida. Tel: 22210 87932.Prices vary depending on what one gets.The cheapest are the kebabs which are delicious. Try the chicken stick kebab (1.90). It is juicy and has sweet green pepper in between. The pork kebab (1.40) is nice but the chicken is unbeatable! A mixed salad costs 11.50 which I find pricy, and Cesar’s salad 7.20 euro.Local sausage costs 2.10 and a “pikilia for 2” costs 34 euro. This is a pricy dish as well.Another pikilia called “Bekri” and it is to accompany mostly wine for two persons costs 16 euro, and a kilo of Lamp chops here cost 32.00 euro. Grilled steak accompanied by either rice or fried potatoes costs 12.00 euro.The interior is nicely decorated with...
IL Posto di pasta: WATCH OUT! I cannot recommend it
The restaurant is located on the most popular pedestrian street of Chalkida’s waterfront promenade among a number of other popular restaurants. It offers an open area on the pavement and a covered roof to protect from wind or rain. The interior is nice and cosy and the cuisine is Italian. We thought to try this restaurant which is just a few metres from the Lucy Hotel where we are staying. We wanted to try some of the dishes, but what made us order something fast and leave was the bad ventilation of the building. The people sitting at every table all around us seemed to be enjoying smoking more than their food. There was so much smoke all around that we thought to have something quick and leave. In the meantime we had to change a seat and move towards the very entrance where there was less smoke since the door was kept open. We did not feel as comfortable as we wanted it to be because...
XENIA Cafe-bar (Restaurant) in Chalkida: Impressive and Popular!
The stylish Xenia café-bar Restaurant is impressive even in winter. Situated in the most idyllic location on the top of the hill just below the Castle of Karababa attracts many visitors even from Athens and it is encouraging how people in Greece check the Restaurants lately through the net, even café-bars that they are planning to visit. The economic crisis in Greece made everyone consider the least penny spent and the Xenia is indeed popular, keeping the price low and quality at the highest point!It was outstanding during the summer visit, but now in the middle of winter when everything moved indoors it is really amazing. The cozy atmosphere, its beautiful ambience and style, the beautiful design makes it unrivalled.The age of its fan followers or customers vary. There are not only youngsters but grown ups as well. The Xenia was not only full but there were people waiting to get a seat,...
PLATANOS Restaurant - Paradisi village: The 3rd generation of Professionals!
Paradisi is a very small village on the opposite side of the main highwaygoing to Marmari. We had lunch at the restaurant called ‘Platanos’ and I highly recommend it for its fresh and good quality food offered here.However, it is good to ask for the legal receipt after you pay because we were not given a receipt at first and we had to demand it. It was just a paper with the amount of each item we ordered.The food though, was tasty and the lamp chops I chose were the best quality I had ever had, and the green bean salad was exceptional. Shepherds keep goats and lambs in the area and these animals are known all over the country for their delicious meat.I found the portion of chops adequate and very cheap as I paid only 8 euro for it. The green bean salad cost us 5 euro, bread 2 and a bottle of water cost 1.50. Half a kilo of red carafe wine (home made product of excellent quality) for just...
'O DIONYSOS' Grill Restaurant -Psitopoleio: A Kebab and Gyro Restaurant I recommend!
We wanted to treat ourselves to some kebab and we had dinner at this restaurant in Karystos.The portions are plentiful and tasty. I had 2 sticks of kebabs with potatoes for 4 euro,Tzatziki costs 3 euro, and a beer 1.50 euro.Gyro (very tasty) costs 2.60 euro.The service was fast, and I noticed that it is a popular little restaurant in Karystos because there were people waiting to be served.I highly recommend it for plentiful and tasty lunch or dinner on a budget.Home delivery is possible from 7:00pm to 11:30 pm.A portion of gyro served costs 6.50 and a kilo of lamb chops cost 24 euro.Local sausage costs 6 euro and all soft drinks cost 1.10.Fried potatos cost 2 euro, and of course there are many more to choose from.When I return I will try the ham and cheese rolls which must be tasty and 5 euro.The onwer is Mr. Athanasios Antoniades.The restaurant remains closed every Tuesday.
