We found Petrino by chance. It was 1pm on a Sunday and the lamb was turning on the spit. 'Come in, the meat is almost cooked' they said. As it happened, we asked Katerina to choose a selection of veggie dishes for us from the extensive menu instead which included delicious vine leaves, dakos and omlette. Her enthusiasm for her...

We were visiting Krytsa and hadn't seen anywhere that caught our eye for lunch. The guidebook we had mentioned that the locals often went to Kroustas for the pasta. We plumped for Petrinos and were delighted with our choice. Excellent food, good service and very friendly owners. We were given the customary raki with the bill and told it was... More

We were recommended the restaurant by Christos Damianos of Villa Michalis Istron and very grateful for it we were. George was the perfect host. Our party of four were keen to try different... More

We stumbled across this amazing restaurant while exploring the area in the little Suzuki Jimny. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting right next to the church. Both times we visited there was only one other table with people sat on it, even in the evening. This is surprising as the food we were served is by far some of... More

Fantastic food and excellent hospitality. The owner Georgios Tsioufis put his soul in every meal. You don't have to chose from card - if you like he will prepare list of meals you have to try. Fantastic zuccini balls, dakos or even Greek salad on start and the best moussaka ever as main meal. Special dessert Mille-feuille and Greek coffee... More
