The secret of this longtime favorite, with a large terrace overlooking the sea and main village square, is an elegant, perfect simplicity. Seemingly straightforward dishes, such as sea-urchin salad, fried manouri cheese with basil and pine nuts, swordfish in caper sauce, and lobster risotto, become transcendent with the magic touch of third-generation chef Dimitris Mavrikos, who now owns this family-run institution, which has been in business since the 1930s, with his brother, Michalis. He combines the freshest ingredients with classical training and an abiding love for the best of Greek village cuisine. The meat dishes, including oven-baked lamb, are also sublime.
