Stamatis: Oldest and still best
The oldest restaurant in Batsi and still the best!! Great service, delicious food and quaffable wine. All at prices that are easy on the pocket. Managed and cooking by the son of the founder, his family and friends - all with a real interest in maintaining the deserved good name of the establishment.
Favorite Dish: Kleftiko - it's specially prepared every Wednesday night but be sure to order it.
what to eat
Stamatis tavern and Mpelalis restaurant are two nice restaurants at Mpatsi. “Balconi of The Agean” has great view at Aprovato but we liked the food too.
Favorite Dish: I found good food in many places. I tried some local cheeses. A nice local plate is the cock with large pasta. I also liked meat balls with potatoes or vegetables. Delicious! Of course I ate the famous local plate “froutalia” that is an omelete with sausages.
Name eludes me but U can't miss it: Bathe before, not after
Vitali is a small pebbled beach surrounded by rocky cliffs. After a seabathe there it is a short walk to the local restaurant, and it is worth enjoying a meal while gazing at the beach. Vegetables and other meal ingredients are produced locally, just next to the place itself. For me the best time to visit is late August, after the winds have subsided, and it's best to start your meal around sunset time.
Favorite Dish: Fourtalia is a local Andros dish, an omelette with potato and sausage (or, vegetarian version, courgette). As many other things in life, it's delicious but to be consumed with moderation.
