We didn't find this place either as hard to find or far out of town as some reviews suggested, but it was certainly away from the commercial life of the area in a residential backwater where a herd of sheep were shepherded by and stopped...More

A very unassuming place. Quite out of the way from the main road but worth a visit. No fish on the menu unless you call ahead a day before. The mother cooks. The daughter waits tables. Menu is extensive. You check the items you want...More

My family discovered amethystos in 2010 during a week long reunion. We enjoyed Amethystos several times and especially the family atmosphere and the amazing traditional foods. It was off season and we were invited into the kitchen. Thank you for special memories.

Cozy, family and traditional restaurant with delicious and filling portions, every day specialties. We serve the best homemade wine, raki and rakomelo(raki with honey). We only use our certified olive oil to cook. Hearty service ("Philoxenia") and fair prices. Credit cards accepted. Accessibility to disabled. If you think of celebrating birthday or other events, Amethystos can prepare one completely unforgettable evening. Daily open from 10.00 until closing.
