Food & Drink
Paliki has a good selection of places for eating by the seaside as lots of tavernas here are located right on, or very close to, the beach. These are a few we have selected that stand out from the crowd!
Tuck into meatballs, fried tomatoes and little fried fish with beer on the sand, at the rustic Lepeda Taverna, it’s ideal for relaxing after a swim at Lepeda Beach, great for kids and in the evening you can watch a beautiful moon rise! On Petani beach you can eat freshly prepared dishes at the laid back open-air Erasmias – it is especially good for fish and seafood. A great place to stop after visiting Petani or Agia Eleni beaches is the interesting Ladokola stin Plagia Restaurant at Damoulisnata where you will find traditional food made by the mother of friendly and humorous twin brothers served in a nicely decorated place. Kaliva tou Psara (Fishermans Hut) is a traditional fish taverna at the port of Agia Kyriaki, serving fresh fish, chips and Greek salad, it has fabulous sea views but you need to book large fish in advance. Located on the sandy shores of Porto Atheras beach is Taverna Drosos. It’s ideal for families with kids and offers great local homemade dishes in a laid back atmosphere with beauty sea views. Vatsa Taverna serves fresh fish served right on the sand at Vatsa beach! It’s perfect for lunch and early evening and you will find homemade, freshly prepared food.
