The taste of freshly made feta can not... More

Hotzas is a very nice local Tavern, and a must try if you're in Chios. The place is very traditional Greek, and very cozy. A great place for Meze - the food is absolutely delicious.

Very good menu! The eggplant dishes are my favourite. They have English and Turkish language menus. And local beer.

The restaurant is excellent, and prices are contained. I ate there twice and both times I was amazed by their ability to join traditional Greek cuisine with innovation and original recipes. Try their vegetable dishes. We did not choose what to order: they owner brought us a number of dishes and we enjoyed them all under the orange trees in... More

We've already eaten at best known restaurants in Chios. If you want to meet with real traditional Greek reataurant you should try first this one. Reservation is necessary, service may be slow but it definitely worths. Finally you can order Bougatsa as a desert. Epharisto para poli.

Thank tanati
