There is no shortage of restaurants in Greece. To get yourself a good meal you can usually just walk into any one you please. This blog is about some of the restaurants in the area of a small village called Mavrovouni. It is also not so much about the food, but the dining experiences.
The beach area is a popular tourist destination. Everyone wants to enjoy a meal while watching the waves of the Mediteranean Sea. Hotels and restaurants line the road that runs the length of the beach.
One place that we chose to eat was Ammos Restaurant. Its blue chairs and checkered tablecloths sit in the shade of the covered patio. Aside from good food, it has another feature that is very common in Greece. Cats.
As soon as we sat down, we knew that we were being watched. A scan around revealed that feline eyes were spying on us from behind planters or from the bushes. They were watching in hopes that some scraps would fall to the floor. Once in a while they would walk past in hopes that they might entice you to drop something for them to eat.
A small kitten came up to us and tried to use its cuteness to score some scraps. While we did admit that it was cute we still did not part with our meals. The kitten became more and more aggressive and less cute.
We managed to finish our meals with minimal feline interference. The small kitten was not pleased.
The next morning we enjoyed some crepes at STILVI cafe. It is near the main road away from the beach. The crepes were delicious and the collection of coloured chairs on their patio were delightful. It looked just like a postcard. There were no cats in sight.
We traveled further down the beach that evening. The mountains were different shades of blue across the water.
We walked until we decided upon a restaurant. We went inside. Little did we expect that we would have an unusual dining companion this evening. We had to do a double take as at the table next to us was a chicken. It sat there quietly during our meal and only stood up once or twice to look around. We did not see it eat anything while it was there, but whatever it did eat would have been the chicken dinner.
Always an interesting dining experience in a small village by the sea.
