“I am a fisherman. I don’t offer anything to my customers that I wouldn’t eat myself.” says Mihalis of Bourtzi Restaurant.
Bourtzi means “bastion” and you can see the remains of the bastion right above it. This classic Greek restaurant is situated in a building dating from the 1800s, and rests against the rocks behind.The wooden chairs, popular at open-air cinemas and coffee houses back in the day, and marble tables right by the sea are beautifully integrated with the blue and white décor.
It’s owner, Mihalis demonstrates all the cooking skills he has obtained in the last 17 years, serving a wide range of seafood meze that go well with Raki, including treats such as saffron roe, freshly pickled anchovies and capers, fan mussels and octopus.
