Pelagos was newly opened this year by Stelios and his brother....A little off the beaten track for most visitors to Stalis as it lies to the western end of the centre, not a direction that many will walk in unless they are staying at a hotel at that end of Stalis.
The beachfront along this end of Stalis was upgraded not so long ago, and what was a straight 3 metre drop into the sea (which is what Pelagos means in Greek!), is now a pleasant boulevard with some smart railing along the water's edge and proper street lighting mingled with Canary Palms.
Seating is what you normally expect in a Greek Taverna with wooden chairs with seagrass seats as well as some with vinyl seats which you will stick to on hot nights but it is worth sticking to a seat to get food like this!
Mysteriously the menu has a large number of Tex Mex dishes on it, but I think this may be because some of the dreaded all-inclusive hotels seem to have Tex Mex restaurants, although why anyone would want to come to Greece to eat Tex Mex food beats me!
We were lookiing at the mixed grill for two and when we asked what was on it, Stelios told us and then said 'You do not need to order anything else', which perhaps is not good salesmanship but was at least honest!
As it happened we did order a Greek salad as you have to eat some greenery each day!
The Mixed Grill consisted of two decent sized lamb chops, two proper sized chicken souvlaki, two good sized pieces of pansetta (belly pork), two home made burgers, and pieces of gyros meat, along with various bits of garnish.
Submerged under the mountain of meat were loads of lovely home made chips which are so often served in Greeks tavernas (none of your frozen McCain stuff here!).
The salad was a good size with all the normal ingredients and a good slab of feta on the top, strangely no olive oil was produced along with the salad, but I think Stelios just forgot to bring it!
End result...There was more meat than the two of us could eat, which means the dog was quite pleased when we got home!
As is normal a plate of grapes and raki were handed, when our plates as been cleared, for free.
The important bit, the price......Mixed grill for two, one Greek salad, one litre of house red dry wine (which was a good one), and half a litre of water...€27.50 all in, so leaving the change from €30 as a tip, €15 a head...Excellent.
Great Food, good service without being over the top (the waitress on our visit was Stelios's daughter!), and good value!!
