Dining guide for Skiathos
In Skiathos, you can choose among several dining options. First, comes the world famous “souvlaki” (quite similar to “kebab”) which is the fast, cheap option for dining. It's a mixture of pork meat, “tzatziki” sauce (garlic, yogurt & cucumber), tomato and “pitta”. Apart from this speedy, Greek option, there are many taverns and restaurants, where you can taste different and probably healthier cuisines like English, French, Italian, Fish & Seafood and obviously traditional Greek plates like “mousaka”, “imam” or “papoutsakia”.
By choosing Skiathos town, you have several dining options. The taverns located in the narrow picturesque streets of the old town is a good one when coming back from the beach and you want to walk around a bit, go shopping and end up for dinner. The ports, the old and the new, the hill on the top of the town and the marina, where you can see crews preparing for setting sail to the rest of the Sporades islands (like Skopelos & Alonissos), are some other options.
In case you choose to take a ride on your bike (it can be a car, taxi or bus too), you can enjoy your dinner by the sea, on great balconies offering a wide view to the Aegean Sea and the Pelion mountain in mainland Greece. Such places are Koukounaries, Agia Paraskevi & Megali Ammos.
