Christina and her husband, Manolis, cook home-style Greek dishes in a typical old Hydriot house with stone floors and wooden ceilings, where time seems to have been standing still since the 1950s. Try the octopus stifado (stew) with pearl onions; beef with quince; or eggplant stuffed with ground meat. Grilled meats and fresh fish, including the island's own calamari, are also available. Scrumptious desserts include baklava and two types of halvah. It's a good idea
to arrive before 9 pm for dinner; there are only 20 tables under the open-air vine-covered pergola upstairs, and they fill up quickly.
