During a short visit to Paros, I visited a restaurant for the first time.
It is a restaurant by the breaking wave on the edge of Aiyki, in the southwestern corner of the island.
The restaurant opened last year and operates during the – unfortunately short – tourist season of Paros, from late May to late September.
It is owned and operated by a couple.
The husband is a chef trained in France, and the wife runs the front of the house.
The menu is local food, prepared and presented in a beautiful and “modern” way.
It not only tastes good, it looks good as well!
They have a seven small dishes appetizer plate that is a must. Eggplant salad, marinated anchovies, chick peas, octopus in wine, fava bean salad, taramossalata (egg roe dip) and a delicious cold tomato soup.
The highlight of the appetizers is a small tuna carpaccio with avocado and mint.
The cheese fritters are made with local fresh cheese and are delicious!
I was curious how rabbit would taste in a hot day, and was justified in taking the dish. Absolutely delicious, juicy and gamey local rabbit, in a light sauce with lardons to die for, parmesan cheese and tagliatelle al dente.
One thing is for sure. I will visit them again!
