The surround area is full of high tress and while you eanjoy your meal you hear birds singing and the sound of water falling. It is so beautiful and worth visiting.

Everything is homemade and the owners are very polite people.
The cost of each dish is really so economic that you will be surprised.
As I was driving around the island with no particular purpose, I was picturing having a good meal at a quiet restaurant overlooking the water as the sun was setting. Nautilus was exactly the kind of restaurant I was looking for. Before even getting to the menu, a small glass of ouzo was brought over as a welcome to the island and the restaurant. The owner/cook/waitress, Dimitra, was exceptionally friendly and caring in an almost motherly way. She stated that her main purpose was to satisfy her customers' taste buds in a clean establishment. That purpose was certainly accomplished. The dishes were prepared in the traditionally simple Greek way with fresh ingredients, olive oil, and just the right kind and amount of spices. Locally homemade organic wine is also served. Pleasant Greek music was playing in the background at a comfortable volume.
I cannot recommend this place strongly enough! Great food in the most pleasant setting.
Favorite Dish: Baked eggplant with tomato, feta, and garlic.
There are many olives trees on the island and there is a factory somewehre... I d say somewhere on the west caost near Limenas, since I felt the smell of olives there he he he If that is valid direction LOL Listen to your nose. They seel them in various way, 500g of big ones is less than 2euros.
Honey is another produc of which this island is famous too.
They make great pine honey. You can buy it is all shapes and sizes, from brekfast size jar to 1kg or more. if I rememebr well 1kg was 6 euros or something. You can find those amazing honey with almonds jars too. Aphrodisiacs LOL
They also sell figs, oranges, lemons and stuff in corn syrup.
There are various nuts and variations of preparing them. Almonds, nuts, walnuts in honey... Nuts in caramelized sugar and sesame...Salty nuts... If you are a "nut" person you ll enjoy them very much.
Favorite Dish: Not a nut but they also make a great cooked or grilled corn. Not a nut either LOL but the have great olives too.
In the mountainy village of Theologos, there are several restaurants worth visiting if you love MEAT. You can eat skewered chicken, sheep, pig, kid (young goat). Especially the goat is excellent. The prices are extremely low. In 2006 we paid for two portions of meat (kid and pig). one French fries, a greek salad, a bougiournti (grilled feta and kasseri cheace with hot red pepper and tomato) plus 1/2 liter of Retsina and 2 colas only 12 Euros!! Plus in the end they offer you loukoumades, a delicious sweet with honey

When in Greece eat like a Greek.
There are many restaurants all over the island. They offer various food, from local foos, sea food, gyros, souvlaki...

Reciepe for pasticcio you have here. http://www.recipesource.com/ethnic/europe/greek/00/rec0049.html
We ate at a few resraurants but stuck to two favourites. One was by the harbour, which we frequented during the day, actually swimming from the quayside - yuk! amongst the fish and the other was up the main street and had a hollow tree in it's outside seating area. Anyone recognise it?
They were always busy, mainly with foreigners and the food I remembered was good, (anything can taste good after copious amounts of wine!)
Favorite Dish: There was usually something cooking on the large spit, over the charcoal. The spit roasted pork, wrapped in foil and then carved, was simply delicious.
We had a lovely meal here, but didnt note the name unfortunately. We did take a picture of it though :)
We found it quite interesting that 'kid' on the spit was on the menu.... I wonder what the child protection unit would have to say about that??? ;) Direct translations can be quite amusing at times...
