“Great tasting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

If you like to try something else than the "tourist" restaurants try this excellent traditional restaurant Amethystos. You get a warm welcome and you start with Nice roasted bread with beautifull olive oil and tastefull wine from the owner. Try the different starters and the main course is excellent. You taste the love of mamma who is born to cook beautifull dishes.

“Try their wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Very good ingredients, big portions good food a lot of local dishes with a personal touch. The wine is of the owner and it sure worths a try. The only minus that I may add is that it is a bit isolated as a restaurant, but nevertheless quiet.
