Al fresco family fun
Overlooking the sparkling sea of the Mediterranean, Sienna is a relaxed, open-air restaurant that is as popular for wedding receptions as it is for family meals. The large playground lets children entertain themselves while adults dine on signature dishes like moussaka and stuffed green peppers, as well as international cuisine, followed by decadent desserts. All are prepared under the watchful eye of a highly acclaimed London-trained chef and served alongside an extensive wine list.

Seven St Georges Tavern
For the most amazing meze
The fact that there’s no set menu here, and that the owner and his family will come to your table to tell you the dishes of the day, prove that this tavern offers nothing but the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. The ever-changing meze platters might include wild fennel mushrooms, pickled cauliflower, goat salami and flash-fried wild asparagus in this vegan-friendly venue. The more traditional kleftico and lamb tavas are also on offer, along with a selection of house wines.

First stop for seafood
If you like to choose your own fresh fish from a wide selection, this is the place for you.

Nicos’ son catches the fish himself every day, sourcing vegetables from local markets. What’s more, the old-fashioned décor is part of this little eatery’s humble charm.
