a tasteful patrimony..

Arias

captain Vlastaris’ eternal heritage, a small place overlooking Agia Irini bay in Kythnos island. a fish tavern out of this world, now run by his offspring. fresh fish and family secret ingredients served on “Arias”(daughter’s name) peaceful dock. ask Mr. Kostas also known as “Soumas”(from his mother’s side), he is “sittin’ on” it for more than 15 years!

there you can taste some fresh, full flavor tomato slices with capers, a delicate red mullet sashimi, some golden, crispy croquettes with traditional xino(means sour) cheese aka sfouggato, a perfectly fried calamari, a finger lickin’ good caramelized octopus with honey, the bad-ass of the menu and an incredibly tasty grilled brown meagre(fish called pantelis).

salty sea..

almyra

food is art, ask your palates! Eleni Filippa is an artist; a devoted santouri(traditional Greek instrument) player. just do the math now. a food lover she is. “almyra”(means saltiness) is a cute seaside place at Megali Ammos beach in Kythnos island. a purifying setting made of sea, sand and some colorful director’s chairs. no harm in being just an extra in this scene.
