Finally, a restaurant in Milos, Greece with a little comfort. Resembling a French bistrot, due to the Greek owner having long lived in France, the restaurant at first seems to be out of place, that is, out of the usual unconfortable Greek tavern, with ugly and narrow tables, where food is served alltogether, without any distinction between orektika (appetizers), first or second dish.
The table is lied down with taste, the white wine is always served in an ice bowl, the food is absolutely Greek and local, and in large plates and in the right quantity. Normal prices.
Favorite Dish: Fish cooked under salt.

Correct Spelling & Pronunciation of Adamas
d vs. th
When listening to the natives, you'll find that the d in the largest village and main port of the island, Adamas, is not pronounced by the locals as the d in Adams, but more like a th in then/there/therefore. They tried spelling it Athamas once, but realized the foreigners would pronounce it as the th in Athens, so they scratched that idea and went back to Adamas. Actually, lots of Ds in Greek names are supposed to be pronounced as Ths. :)
Incidentally, Adamas is also correctly called/spelled Adamantas or Adamandas. There are no more alternative spellings for my native village of Adamas, however. My birthplace is NOT Addamas, Adhamas, Amadas, Amadeus, or anything remotely similar to the aforementioned arbitrary misspellings.
