The well-managed restaurant, located just by the old Analipsi harbour, serves traditional local fare with a modern twist on its multiple seafood dishes. Arrive in early evening and watch local fishermen prepare boats and nets for the next morning's fishing trip on the beach directly outside.


For an island of slightly over a 1000 inhabitants, Astypalaia boasts a surprising number of pleasant restaurants and cafes, most of which concentrated in Chora and along the Pera Gialos waterfront. Seafood reigns queen in the menus of local eateries, with heavy culinary influences from the Greek mainland, Italy and Turkey. Do not be surprised to find that some places may not have a written down list of dishes, but rather a "spoken" menu, where the owner and/or staff announce the offers of the day.
