    Apanemia Taverna: The best mezè in Milos

    by mitla Written Mar 28, 2009

    Nice silent place with a very nice waiter (owner???) to make some conversation with. He found very funny that in Italy we call the watermellon (Karpuzi in greek) "Anguria" that in greek means.... cucumber!! So he was saying that Italians (who maybe think that italian is a language understood everywhere???) at the end of the meal use to order "anguria" and they get so much disappointment seeing a green long... cucumber on their table!!! And imagine the waiter's surprise hearing the strange request!!!!

    Favorite Dish: Listen to me: just take a lot of mezè and a meat dish, no more. They make croquettes of every kind: from typical pitarakia, to normal cheese and the tomato, zucchini and so on. Don't miss them and whane your satisfied don't forget to order a refreshing.... Karpuzi!!!!!!!!!

    Kynigos: Good restaurant on the sea

    by mitla Written Mar 28, 2009

    A little restaurant with its clear green tables on the street. The service is good and fast, prices are ok, maybe a little higher than average proces for Milos.

    Favorite Dish: Here you cannot miss "Pitarakia" little croquettes filled with Milos typical cheese, slightly saure but really tasty! My husband took grilled octopus which was simply delicious. I took pastitsio and it was good but too heavy for it had too much cheese sauce on it.

    Tarantella: Lunch with a view

    Tarantella is definitely one of the best restaurants in Milos. Even though it is located off the beaten path, it is always full of guests. Both the locals and the visitors alike choose Tarantella for its exquisite cuisine, generous portions and magnificent, elevated view of the bay of Provatas. Tarantella is more popular during the day, where bathers at nearby beaches (4 in the bay of Provatas alone) stop by to taste the local and gourmet delicacies offered by the 2 brother owners, Sarantos and Elias Soulis.

    Sarantos' wife, Marina, the head chef, has added her own homemade recipes, adding to Tarantella's local, authentic and unforgettable dining experience.

    - Andreas


    Favorite Dish: Either pork or chicken filet with fig or plum sauce served with rice or french fries. A heavenly dish! Tarantella offers both gourmet dishes as well as local and traditional Greek recipes.

    Do not forget to order Marina's dessert, a delicacy called "HalvAs" with raisins and honey, for just €2.50.

    O! Hamos tavern

    Don't be fooled by its hilarious name. Upon setting foot in the taverna O! HAMOS (= Oh! The riot!; pron. OH!, hah-MOSS) you'll find yourself in a down-to-earth, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, where the local, homemade delicacies will excite your taste buds.

    Recipient of awards for culinary excellence, the tavern O! HAMOS is located across the beach of Papikinou, within walking distance of the center of Adamas. Available stretchers and umbrellas by the beach as well as a beach bar, mean that a visitor can spend the entire day in the vicinity, sunning, swimming and snacking, making the tavern O! HAMOS an ideal spot for vacationers.

    O! HAMOS tavern

    Favorite Dish: All dishes cooked in clay pots in the oven, and especially: Meat, cheese and eggplant; Pork; Lamb or Goat.

    estiatorio Milos: not located in Milos

    The sign of estiatorio Milos at the Athens Hilton
    4 more images

    The upscale restaurant estiatorio Milos is not located in the island of Milos. There are 3 Milos restaurants in the chain, located in Montreal, QC, New York City, NY, and Athens, Greece. The owner, Costas Spiliadis, is of Greek descent of course, and allegedly, he chose the name "Milos" because he wanted to pick a name of a Greek island that was easy for guests to pronounce. The word "estiatorio" means "restaurant" in Greek.

    I have dined twice at the estiatorio Milos in New York and I can attest to the fact it is both top notch as well as expensive. A hearty dinner for 2 (New York strip steak, lobster and salad) including tip was $330. A bottle of Evian water was $8. As my chiropractor commented after I told him of my dining experience: "How do you spell "Evian" backwards?".
    :)

    - Andreas


    Favorite Dish: New York strip steak and Lobster. No words can begin to describe the dishes at estiatorio Milos!

    On the first staircase up from the port as you head into town, is an upmarket Italian-style eatery which offers an alternative to standard Greek fare. If you've had your fill of dolmades and souvlaki, you'll appreciate this restaurant's menu which includes lobster, duck, turkey and pasta dishes. The restaurant stays open late and there's dancing in the café upstairs until the small hours.

    This fish tavern serves fresh fish which is caught daily from the crystalline seas around Milos. The caiques set out every morning towards the open sea spreading their nets to catch the fish which will form a part of your taste experience. They cook some of the food in a unique way. In certain areas of the beach, the subsoil reaches very high temperatures. A few hundred centimetres under the surface, they place their cooking vessels to produce the most delicious food.

    Some of their specialities are: potatoes cooked in butter, potato with hot cheese, onion, lamb and chick peas.

    STO LEBESI: PLEASURE AT THE EVENING

    by Orkaena Updated Aug 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sometimes, after a sunny beach day at Sarakiniko we used to drop by Pollonia port, located at more or less 12 kilometers from Adamas port.
    In this place, and on the pier, there are three or four typical greek tavernas.
    One of them -Sto Lebesi- was our fave stop by. Nothing too special or exotical, a cold beer, some black olives, feta cheese and bread. Just snacks to make bearable the time until dinner.
    In fact, all those things tasted beside the pier of Pollonia and almost at the sunset was an unforgettable experience.

    Favorite Dish: Modest preferences, feta cheese, home made bread and black olives.

    In the diminute Mandrakia harbour there is a diminute restaurant. Dont worry, has no address but you'll find it. In Mandrakia there are 5 houses, one church, one telephone cabinet and the restaurant. Tables in the open air with great view. Absolutely fresh seafood, alive seafood or almost.

    Favorite Dish: Sea urchins, with olive oil, pepper and lemon.
    Just one detail. The urchins still moving while you are eating... Delicious.

    TO STEGADI: MEALS AMONG HOSPITALITY AND BEAUTY

    by Orkaena Updated Jul 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Plaka is the capitol village of Milo, (yap, Plaka, the same name as the famous ancient quarter in Athens), calm, silent and never overcrowded, Plaka is located at the tophill dominating the scenery over the port Adamantas. Here (Plaka village) you can choose among four or five bar-restaurants. We found one where we felt the true hospitality of the locals, The owners, Zefy and Nikola, are amazing people with a special "hand" cooking local dishes. "Our" table outside was this at the right of the entrance door, looking straight to the main pedestrian narrow street, a charming view of this little village.
    really... really like at home.

    Favorite Dish: Saganaki, keftedes, black olives and... frozen retsina wine. Geia sou!!
