Best meze restaurant

Apart from Antonis, (I am guessing that if they take reservations they might not be keen on a single diner taking up a table) can anyone give me a name of a good kitchen in the town itself for July please, only have two nights and don't want to end up in a stale tourist trap. Many thanks.

The oldest place in town is the traditional ouzeri O Ermis on Ermou: towards the top end heading towards the northern harbour. Not eaten there recently but did have a drink there back in May. Worth visiting just for the decor!

The best person to ask is Movieland-Mitilini - drop him a PM if he doesn't join in this thread.

We had a good meal of several shared mezes at the southern harbour - not Lavrion standard of course. Cannot remember which place but think owners were 2 guys - one called Christos maybe?

Mitilíni, Lesvos...

These are the ones I like, there are many others. Where talking Meze and Ouzo hear, not eating "του σκασμού - eating until you burst".

Top more expensive, bottom cheaper:

Ermis, To Kastro, Kalnterimi. These 3 are also where I find many tourists go.



Paratairon, Giasemis Garden.

Antonis Ouzeri at Kagianni is the best if you count in the view. He is also the only one you should call ahead for a table. He is also where you will go on your first night.

If you go to any of the nearby villages, there are others.
