Tavernas/restaurants of Paleochora, aug/sep 2022

my criteria are (roughly evenly applied):

a) food b) location c) price d) service


1. The Little Angel - quiet corner - food (a very special moussaka this time, with some interesting herbs in) - 

excellent prices - went again. had lamb kleftiko still very good!

2. Christos - great service, super reliable food, view, and very good value - great dorade, for example, also classics like lamb in oven with lemon potatoes, goat tsigoridis etc

3= El Greco - food italian (pizza, pasta) all reliable -- upstairs area is great with amazing view - pricing good, 

3=.Olaya - new kid on the block - asian fusion - excellent starters (prawns & rolls etc), good service, mains a bit big (or in one case small) but good flavour - decent pricing, good service

3=  Third Eye - a matter of taste - deserts will probably suit all - I like it - had a very good sweet potato ragaile (fruit!), some don't - usually people could steer away from heavier vegan dishes (bean burger) will find plenty to like - service ace - interestingly, only has "posh" retsina instead of usual mass produced stuff - also nice house wine

3= Methexis - very busy, but we went a second time, and got a very classy meal for a surprisingly good price, so went right up in my estimation (95 euro for 7 people including starters and wine!)

4.  Marias - always great smiles, and solid, reliable, and super affordable - mostly greek taverna standards

5= Pantelis  - shame they reduced their menu, but still very nice quieter location, and decent food/price 

6 Oriental bay - reliable, affordable - now it is more open, less mosquitoes - decent too loud:-

7. Castro - some good ideas and good greek wine list - a bit pricey...views amazing - plus cocktail bar up stairs very decent

Note, these are ALL worth going to:-) most on google maps (you may want to learn to read greek),23.6810057,17z

pricing depending on if you have starters & main and wine, somewhere in 20-35 euro per person roughly

Things I still miss in Paleochora

1/ The Pelican

2/ the open air Sinema where we saw the Flintstones (starts with them driving to an open air cinema) and the Athens Olympics ceremonies!

3/ the Sea Urchins
