You can eat well, almost everywhere in Kavala! You can go to Perigiali district to catch a table by the sea and choose between a large variety of traditional dishes with sea-food, or meat (my favorite taverna is “Kyra-Vaggelio" (Nyremvergis street 146).
Or, you can stay in the city center, in the characteristic old neighborhood of Saint Nicolas, where you can find cute little taverns, “tsipouradika” and “mezedopoleia”, places where you can stay for hours, clinking glasses of tsipouro, or wine and tasting traditional delicacies. Here, I prefer "Sousouro" (Ag. Nikolakou 4). This part of the city, where you can also find nice coffee-bars, is more attractive in the evening, when all the tables are set outside and there is a pleasant come-and-go until late at night.
Another choice – for those who have their own car, or wouldn’ t mind take the bus – would be “Ladofanaro” tavern, in Palio, a sea-side village, 8 kms west from Kavala. You can find excellent meat at “Ladofanaro”, which is said to be from buffalos, traditionally bred at the shores of Kerkini lake. In any case, you will eat well and you will enjoy the dew of the pine-trees and the sea-breeze.
This is a really special choice, with intense aroma of Kavala’ s naval history. In the old shipyard, there is this tiny tavern, called “Nafpigeio”. This place, opened in 1922 to serve the workers of the shipyard, is today the most “cult” tavern, where you can find fresh fish and seafood and associate with local people. If you are lucky enough, you might bump into groups of friends, who would sing along with guitars and “bouzouki”. The atmosphere is unique, also in wintertime, sitting by the woodstove and warming up your body and soul with burning “raki”.
I use to enjoy the beautiful and tasty seafood in my past visits now the new trends are inn and instead of lovely seafood restaurants pizzerias are everywhere.Napolitana pizza is situated between 2 other pizzerias like Roma pizza and another one that I dont remember right now.Anyway the owner was very friendly and I think that he made a good job with the pizza.... it was tasty
Favorite Dish: you dont have any other choice but pizza...
Nowadays caffe Latte or Capucino or machiato is very popular but I still suggest you to try what they call "greek cafe" its just beautiful and dont forget to drink the cupof water before trying the coffee it help to clean your mouth and you can enjoy the aroma and the cafe
Favorite Dish: "greek cafe "
My favourite restaurant is called 'Palkoseniko'.
It can be considered a cheap restaurant with a really cosy environment and extremely friendly managers. The best thing is that every night (apart from Tuesday when a student's night is held) a live band plays old greek songs called 'laika'. You'll love it!
Favorite Dish: You'll just love everything included into the Menu but I'd recommend you to have a plate with a variety of goodies called 'pikilia'.
It is one of the oldest taverns of the city and is hidden in a narrow alley above Ononoias Street at the commercial part of the city center. Greta variety of fresh fish and seafood. Its speciality is the “Achnisto”. If you are a meat lover then its meta variety will satisfy your appetite.
