Holiday Food Glorious Food

Kalamaki –

  • Drunken Corner – It’s one of the best bars. Always busy in the evening for drinks but they do meals too. Great for breakfast.
  • Escape – One of the best and the Beef Stifado is some of the best you’ll ever have.
  • Olive Tree – Great service, great food and all reasonable. Try the Olive Tree lamb, a huge shank done slow served with veg and potatoes. Usually have an offer of free starter if you go early evening.
  • Cronulla Hotel – We had breakfast and lunch here. Breakfast was good and the Pork Souvlaki at lunchtime is enough for two. Free use of the pool area as long as you buy drinks.
  • Heavens Kitchen – Good food but the waiters are a bit over the top checking if everything is ok every few minutes and the chap that tries to get people in is a bit sleazy. I hope he’s not there this year!
  • Milos – Doesn’t look much from outside but they looked after us well while there was a thunderstorm going on! Food was ok – nothing to write home about!

The most unusual place we went to last year was at a cafe called Ouzeri near the entrance to the ferry port in Zante Town. We ordered Ouzo mezedes. A Greek mixed plate of octopus, whitebait, olives, sliced meats, feta, Tsatsiki, tomato, sausage, pickled chilli and garlic bread. Very tasty but I don’t think I’d be brave enough to order it again! It was definitely an experience!
