Mr. Nikos Michail decided to pay a damn good tribute to his beloved village in Evia, by naming his restaurant after it. “argoura” is a cosy, welcoming place; simply creating a vintage romantic experience. no fuzzy adjectives, just some fresh ingredients, out-of-the-box thinking and clean tastes. ain’t no such thing as frying here.

you can taste a light sea bass carpaccio, an aromatic marinated tuna, an ultra fine bergamot scented white sea bream, an ambrosial sweet potato version of the famous taramosalata(fish roe salad), a refined octopus carpaccio with barnacles and boiled fish eggs topped with mustard seeds, a “blissful” eel served with smoked aubergine, a tangy sun dried gilt-head, some alternative octopus meatballs and a mouthwatering risotto type orzo with “petrosolines”(shells in rocks). food which gets you salivating!

project happiness is on track! with a little help from the exquisite sauvignon house wine from the “ampelosofies” cellar and the strong “tsipouro”(Greek distilled spirit) blend with fruits. ok, and some golden crunchy phyllo dough layers filled with sweet yellow pumpkin(aka deconstructed Greek bougatsa).
