Minding our own business, mooching about as you do, we were lured by the very friendly owner into this restaurant, the last one on the harbour-side. It is perhaps slightly at a disadvantage in terms of its position, but well worth evading the charms of the flashier cafe bars to indulge in a more traditional Turkish fare.
The owner explained how Turkish pizzas (Pide- prounouced Peedah) are made, that they are boat shaped and can be served open or closed. We had seen other diners raving about Pide so it was about time I tried this local delicacy.
Firstly however we selected starters of Kalimari (wow!) and fantastic borek (hot cheesey pastries).
The Pide I chose was one of tender roast lamb which came in chunks with tomatoes and herbs. The owner was justifiably proud of the quality of his food and it was incredibly good. Just the right size for lunch without being over-filling. The other main was a seafood pasta, again ideal for a light lunch.
DEFINITELY try this more traditional restaurant if you get the opportunity. I doubt you will be disappointed.
Footnote: When, one week later we were thinking about where we would most like to have lunch, we ended up at Lipsos again. Perfection in a Pide!
