Just past 7 Islands is this lovely taverna, you are served by the very friendly and polite son, who is now in charge after his father opened it 30 years ago. The dill dip is superb, similar to tzatziki. The baked aubergine absolutely gorgeous and...More

"Kanioria" is a family restaurant located at the seafront.Nothing can be compared with dining at such a peaceful and beautiful place. Olive oil and fresh ingredients are used for our recipes. Try locally caught fish at reasonable prices here. House and regional wines are excellent. Dessert is always available.
