With its orange painted floor, giant net billowing across the ceiling and walls finished in old black-and-white photos, this is a romantic spot for dinner (especially outside by the sea). The menu excels with carpaccio of swordfish, steak, pasta dishes and Adriatic sea prawns with rosemary. Finish off with one of their delicious sorbets.
Festooned in nets and nautical lanterns, its walls astir with lobsters in tanks, Manos is arguably the best-loved seafood restaurant in the Dodecanese – certainly it packs in more Hollywood demi-gods than a tin of sardines. Octopus cooked in wine, mixed seafood saganaki, shark fillet, crab claws and sea snails are a few of its treasures.
This magical backstreet taverna has Santorini-blue walls decked out with vintage diving photos, antique mirrors and a menu straight from the table of Poseidon. Feast on fresh octopus, sea bream, Symi shrimp and swordfish. The souvlakia, meatballs and roast lamb are all exceptionally tasty. Why not try a mixed seafood dish for two (€30)?
