Located at the junction of the main street in Nidri and the turn off for Paleokatoyna there is always a bustle about Trata in the evening. This just adds to the atmosphere and the feeling of this small traditional family run restaurant. There was a steady stream of people being well fed on the first evening we were there. We started with an Ouzo and a half litre of local white wine along with a bottle of water. The wine was okay, quite palatable. Toasted bread was brought to the table with garlic butter and olive paste, which we can’t resist, and it was devoured straight away. We took a little longer over the starters of a portion of white beans in a homemade sauce and a portion of “village” sausage. Both of these were excellent. Mains were one “Mama’s” Moussaka, which came with a few chips and sliced tomato, and a Chicken souvlaki with a separate tomato salad. The souvlaki was a good size and came with chips. The tomato salad was generous and besides tomatoes contained sliced onions and sliced green peppers. The Moussaka was excellent with two layers of potato sandwiching tasty meat and aubergine slices. The dish was topped with a smooth white sauce set with egg, it was excellent. Just one dessert was ordered, a dish of Greek yogurt topped with fruit. On asking for the bill we were brought two small squares of tiramisu, a nice touch. The bill was a reasonable €37.10 including a glass of reasonably good red wine. The breakdown was as follows: bread €1.50, beans €4, sausages €5.50, souvlaki €6, moussaka €7, dessert €3, ouzo €2.50, 500ml wine €3.90, water €0.70, glass red wine €2. Overall, an excellent evening.
We returned on the last night of our fortnight’s holiday (in fact the only restaurant we dined in twice) and it was just as good. This time we had a mixed starter to share of aubergine fritters, courgette fritters, tzatziki, and sausage and pita bread. We also had an excellent saganaki cheese and the lovely toasted bread with garlic butter and olive paste. For mains we ordered one chicken in creamy garlic and mushroom sauce and a fisherman’s souvlaki. Both of these we had with Greek style potatoes. The food was excellent and the service exemplary. This time with a litre of wine and a gin and Sprite the bill came to €42.10.
In our opinion probably the best place to dine in Nidri.
