We had been informed by a good friend that while on the beautiful island of Skiathos, that we should visit this establishment, being told that it was a beautiful authentic Greek restaurant.
And yes on our first visit we were in agreement, good ole Mel - we even raised a glass in her honour – thank you we said..... But oh dear, it was a short lived toast.
Visit 2: We asked to be moved as our table was located on a windy corner, and if you are paying good money, you want to be able to enjoy your meal in comfort, and so after a begrudging groan from the waiter we were moved – he then took our order which was for 3 starters and mains, and then we waited, and waited......... and waited., “1 hour” later our main dishes arrived and not our starters! - Oop’s this was then rectified and 15 minutes later the starters arrived. But we forgave them and showed good spirit by reserving a table for the following Saturday evening. [Could say that we asked for it, sucker’s for punishment ... Hmmm].
Visit 3. “Let’s go Greek – order a “Meze” for 3 – good idea ............ “No” wrong!! - 2 plates of spicy sausage and onions covered in gravy and that was it, not even 3 dishes, just the 2!!
Definition of the word Meze:
1. An array of Greek and Middle Eastern meze makes a fun and elegant dinner party presentation. Find delicious recipes here, for everything from houmous to ... [you know the rest] But not at the Alexanderous - Skiathos
I enjoyed an exchange of opinion with the arrogant rotund manageress, leaving her with a few words of British and Greek wisdom!!
“PLEASE save your money and spread the word – avoid this poor excuse of a Greek restaurant and visit somewhere else, try “The Meeting Place” just a few yards further along the lane and enjoy a few drinks afterwards in the “Old Port House” – and you won’t be disappointed.”
The thing that got me was the lack of apology and the arrogance, as mentioned above, of the manageress – horrid.
