Taverna Gordeli

A little gem of a place, tucked away above a tiny cove. Access is a little interesting down a 2km steep, rough track. The surface is concrete so not a dirt track but I was still glad of having a 4x4.The taverna has no electricity. It opens around 11a.m. and shuts as dusk approaches.The staff don't speak much English but we had no problem with ordering using a bit of English and our few words of Greek.This is simple but delicious food and everything is made by the taverna. Goat are hunted from the hillside, they rear their own chicken, make their own honey and feta and grow their own vegetables. The only things imported are pasta and drinks.Prices are very reasonable and after your meal you can go for a dip in the small rocky cove below.

Just opened this year offering another pizza takeaway / restaurant In Vamos. Located in what was the old OTE office, Archontiko offers very affordable eating to take away or enjoy on the roadside patio. Reasonable choice of food and beers on the menu. As winter approaches there is a limited amount of indoor seating.

In the 4 days we were in Vamos, we spent a lot of time in this restaurant and although we mainly went there for drinks, they were always served with snacks and additional raki. Great local bar. Mainly frequented by the locals and people who have moved to live in Greece (expats). They were all so friendly and in a matter of 4 days we made some friends for life. Unbelievable. We would strongly recommend a visit to this place and the village of Vamos for those who want a typically Greek experience. Lovely people.

The food is in good quantity and quite good, especially if you are already famished. Quite a few vegetarian options are present. It was winter, an off season, so I guess that's why the restaurant was not heated, which subtracted from the eating experience. Service is friendly, and English is well understood.

The Sterna of Bloumosifis

Reviewed By kevindJ4148UF

This restaurant is superb. Definitely Michelin-Star quality in terms of variety, taste and ingredients. Make sure you order the more unusual dishes (roast chestnut stew, stuffed aubergine/eggplant, stuffed mushrooms). But standard dishes (grilled chops, etc.) also excellent.
