Fodor's Expert Review Patralis
Sit on the waterside veranda and savor seafood mezedes and fresh fish right from the sea in one of the more affordable restaurants on this sometimes overpriced (for Greece) island. As the very friendly waiters will tell you, the house specialties are the fish soup, astakomakaronada (lobster with spaghetti), and a kind of paella with mussels, shrimp, and crayfish. Magirefta (oven-baked dishes) include stuffed aubergines; oven-baked lamb; and roast scarpine fish with tomato and garlic. Expect to pay around €50 per kilo for the fresh grilled fish (compared to €60 in other fish tavernas). The chef makes a mean baked apple for dessert, but before you order, know that mini portions of baklava, karydopita, and spoon sweets with yogurt are on the house.
