Food at the hotel
We had breakfast served to us at our table, with the option of eggs and lots of different small Greek dishes. The Greek yoghurt and honey with dried fruit and nuts, marmalade etc were delicious, and we sampled plenty of the other dishes – all superb! Breakfast was faultless, and eating by the water in the morning sun was bliss.
For lunch you can choose from lots of different things, I’d definitely recommend sharing a pitari (their pizzas from the wood oven) and a Greek salad (one of the best we had, with carob husks and rock samphire!). We also had fab prawns with cods roe here, and the chocolate mousse was a top favourite. It is on the higher end of the budget though, and if you aren’t looking for something as ‘fine dining’ as this I recommend hitting the tavernas (read on for a few tips on these!)
We had dinner twice at the hotel, sharing grilled Greek cheese and lamb chops with saffron risotto and oxtail stew with pasta and dill yoghurt. It was exceptional, but at 28 euros they don’t come cheap! On our other nights, we decided to change things up and eat at some of the fantastic local tavernas – it was great fun heading to a new one each evening and getting a feel for the real, authentic food and local ingredients!
