Description: We own the traditional restaurant "astra". You can find it in a beautiful place with a great view at the mountains. We are picking up our ingredients at the terraces around which are cultivated with organic vegetables. Fresh zucchinis, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuces, but also feta cheese or yellow hard cheese by the animals their parents are elevating. Our cooking is based on traditional local recipes always prepared with fresh and tasty ingredients!!!!!

One of the best traditional restaurants/tavernas in Papigko! Nicely decorated with fireplace and good service. Pumpkin pie is highly recommended as well as fresh trout if you would like to skip red meat!

Mind blowingly good! Its a delight, cozy and warm. We sat in the small cottage ( Astra is on two sides of a small lane ) near the log fire ( Xmas period ) as it was quite cold outside. It doesn't sit many people in this cottage, which is two small rooms with low ceilings, but must have a reputation because many were prepared to stand and wait for a table. Food was mouth wateringly good and in huge portions. Just the pitta, a vast slice of wild greens and Feta pie cooked in filo pastry, was enough to feed an army! My friend ordered the fassoulada, a bean soup, which was big enough to swim in. My dish, the kontosouvli ( marinated pork and veal chunks cooked on a spit ), was simply the best Ive ever eaten in Greece. The waiter ( who spoke excellent english, explained that the chef is famous in the Zagori region for this dish. His simple marinade is garlic, white wine, spicy mustard and an ingredient that must remain secret. Probably a mountain herb, one of many that grow in the nearby Vikos Gorge. Anyway, the girls chose local bifsteki ( veal mince ) stuffed with cheese, which they said was very aromatic, soft and very tasty. We washed it all down with a jug of their own dry red barrel wine. Delicious! Undoubtedly the claims that Astra is the best place to eat in Papigko are true! We will return.

After trying many restaurants around, I can confirm this was the best. Very polite staff, fast service and excellent food. The prices where more than fair for the taste and quality of the dishes. You should definitely try the Lamb Chops and Veal with Mushrooms dishes. The restaurant also offers a great view of the mountains.

It is located in a very place and it is very nice if it is not cold, sit outside at the beautiful garden and the great view!
The food is traditional greek and some of the ingredients are maybe from the little garden at the back.
