Fish taverns by the seaside offering what they fished earlier in their fishing boat, meat taverns, restaurants with very skilled chefs and abundance of exciting tastes, small taverns with local food and vegetarian suitable options, taverns with live music, the traditional souvlaki places, generally food for all preferences and budgets.
