On our way back to Pythagorion from Vathi (Samos Town) we noticed this nice looking building which is a little walk away from the main shopping/dining area in Pythagorion so decided to go there for dinner.
When we arrived, the restaurant was virtually empty (which I found confusing at the time as the place had been highly recommended on tripadvisor) which we later learned was largely due to the World Cup game on that night. This actually helped the atmosphere as it was almost as though we had the whole place to ourselves.
As with most of our other visits to restaurants in Greece, the portion sizes being very large pretty much everywhere, we opted for a salad and 2 main courses. We ordered a traditional Greek Salad, Beef Souvlaki and the Grilled Shrimps.
The salad was nice and fresh and came with a nice sized slab of feta on top. The beef souvlaki was one long skewer consisting of 8 good sized cubes of beef. The souvlaki was nice and tender for the most part, though one side of one of the end pieces was a little overdone. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable main and came with chips and a salad garnish.
The real highlight, however, was my Wife's main of Grilled shrimps which were deliciously chargrilled and juicy and tasted superb. Again the dish came with chips and salad garnish.
As usual, the food was filling and there was little room for dessert, however, we were offered and promptly destroyed a great dish of chocolate sponge cake with Loukamades (deep fried doughnuts in honey and cinnamon) and home grown strawberries. This was a great end to the dinner and both parts of the dish were very nice.
The service was friendly, relaxed and efficient and was one of the best we experienced in Samos (especially the waiter with the friend in Bristol).
The bill came to €49.80 including a carafe of wine and a couple of beers but excluding service. Due to the size of the dishes and the quality, I felt this was good value.
Overall, this was one of our nicest dinners in Samos and would gladly recommend and revisit in future.
