We have eaten at Portes many times through the years, and most recently 3 times this last trip in July at their new location. I like this location in Nea Chora better - quiet, picturesque, and away from the hustle and bustle. The food continues...More

We were looking for a change from the traditional Greek fare and we found it here at Portes.A varied menu with some different dishes.Good service( although cocktails weren't available) and very reasonably priced.Importantly, it's out of the way of the traditional tourist routes

Awesome comfort food. Favorite dish was lamb stuffed aubergine and squash blossoms. The only critique I have is they ran out of aperol Friendly service and great food.
