A true local gem, enjoy the chance to escape the buzzing main street and wander down to Kandouni, an enchanting family-run hideaway.
A favourite with the locals, its ambience is unrivalled. The open air courtyard glows with the warm flicker of candlelight as guests are serenaded to the gentle hum of traditional Greek Kantada under the stars. There is heaps of heart and soul at Kandouni and it really comes through in the cooking. The menu changes daily and fresh local produce is passionately rustled up by the mother and father's loving hands — melt-in-your-mouth salt-crusted sea bass, tender baked Greek lamb, crushed aubergine dip and zesty giant garlic prawns to name just a few of the delicious authentic dishes. The service is on the slower side, but the family make up for it with love, passion and charm. If like us you're not in a rush, you'll be sure to have a magical evening.
We recommend: Giant garlic prawns, crushed aubergine dip, grilled halloumi and traditional baked Greek lamb. Delicious!
