(No website found at time of publishing) – Delphi, Greece

How I heard of this place: On our evening and sunset stroll through our first quaint, cozy town in Greece, we stumbled upon a number of restaurants and cafes. Most of them were lined with tourists and had little to no views of the impressive mountainsides and water in the distance. Chris chose this place for the beautiful water and mountain views that allowed us a quiet, romantic dinner out.

Type of cuisine: Traditional cuisine of Roumeli found in the centre of the town. A friendly, family environment with panoramic views and good food made with pure ingredients and meat from the Parnassos mountains.

Ambiance: As we walked down the small, winding, cobbled sidewalks of Delphi’s three streets in search of a restaurant with a view, Chris selected this one, just a few doors down from our hotel. The exterior stone wall, complemented by the hearty, wood-framed, glass doors open to allow for dim natural lighting to enter the front of the extended rectangular space. A young man in front welcomes us as we make our way in. Casual seating at the front, white tiled floors, and yellow-cushioned seats set against primary color plaid tableclothes welcome us to a cheery interior. The bar to our left separates the space between the family-friendly front of house from the more intimate setting towards the back; the white tiles continuing to lead our way. We took our seats at the table farthest from the front door, in the windowed space, , floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides of the patio, skylights in the exposed, wood roof, and closest to the windows overlooking the Pleistos Valley and the Corinthian Gulf.

What I ordered: I started with the Tzatziki (€3), Chris’s first taste of the delicious yogurt starter, and Spanakopita (€4.50). (When in Greece!) For our main entrees, Chris selected the Pork Chop (€7.90), served with fries on a bed of cabbage and lettuce, and I opted for the Prawns (€12), served with salad, rice and fanned, sliced tomatoes.

What I loved: I absolutely loved the flavor of the prawns, as difficult as they were to remove from their shells after being grilled. The tzatziki, too, garlicky and creamy, just the way I like it!

Why I loved it: The view is unbeatable! The sun setting behind the hills, over the Gulf as we slowly enjoyed our meals, the friendly server teaching us Greek (thank you and hello) and the first meal we shared in Greece, priceless.

Cost: Average (€8-€13 per entree)
