High-end dining in central Athens: Aleria Restaurant (18. July 2016)

If you are in Athens, you should definitely pay the “Aleria” a visit. I was escorted to my table which was – admittedly – not the nicest table in the restaurant but given I was the only person dining alone that night, it was kind of understandable. I was introduced to Aleksandra and shortly after […]

Average breakfast with a nice view onto the harbour: Roumani Café (18. July 2016)

The Roumani Café offers you a nice view onto the harbour of Spetses – and if you are not in a rush, it is the perfect spot to enjoy your breakfast. Not that the breakfast is outstanding or anything, however, the food is quite decent and the view is lovely. If you manage to get […]

Yummy Greek dishes: Agios Tavern (17. July 2016)

Yummy Greek dishes: Agios Tavern (17. July 2016)

The heaven of Greek dips – that is how I would describe the Agios tavern. As an amuse bouche, a “Xinomisithra” dip was served. Do not ask me what exactly that is as I have absolutely no clue – but it was quite nice. The “lettuce salad” (EUR 5.00) was served with fresh onions and […]

Lovely beach but mediocre beach bar: Agia Paraskevi Beach Bar (17. July 2016)

Lovely beach but mediocre beach bar: Agia Paraskevi Beach Bar (17. July 2016)

The Agia Paraskevi beach is located at the opposite side of the island and is easily reachable by motorboat (for approx. 160 EUR). As remote and lovely the beach is, as poor is the infrastructure. The sun beds are definitely not the same standard as the beach I visited the day before. In addition to […]

Watching people for hours at the new port: Roussos Café (16. July 2016)

Watching people for hours at the new port: Roussos Café (16. July 2016)

I was warned before ordering a “frappé” – and I didn’t listen which turned out to be a huge mistake. Now, the “frappé” is yet another coffee-based drink. As usually double espresso even before going to sleep doesn’t do anything to me, I decided a frappé (which sounded lighter) at 8pm is absolutely fine. Well, […]

Interesting Greek icecream flavours: Gelateria Il Posto (16. July 2016)

Interesting Greek icecream flavours: Gelateria Il Posto (16. July 2016)

While the place looks pretty on pictures it is not a place I would usually go in right away. However, given I had local guidance, I decided to give the “Il Posto” a try. I decided to go for flavours I do not know – and the Greek dessert “Ekmek” (EUR 1.50 per scoop) sounded […]

Enjoying life the Greek way: Restaurant Exedra (16. July 2016)

Enjoying life the Greek way: Restaurant Exedra (16. July 2016)

After a “hard day” at the beach, you are definitely in for some good Greek food. Given I was with basically locals on the island, I let them chose the dishes and we started with “Vlika” (or something like that) which tastes a bit like spinach but not really either. But quite good overall. Secondly, […]

Lovely beach but average beach bar: Xilokeriza Beach Bar (16. July 2016)

The Xilokeriza beach is either reachable by bus (which is apparently quite a hassle) or by motorboat which is definitely more expensive (~130 EUR) but also worth it as it allows you to arrive early at the beach and get a nice beach bed to relax throughout the day. While the lagoon is calm and […]
