Favorite places to eat.

There are a lot of places that you can find tasty food, both in the wide area of our cottage house as well as in the beautiful city of Kalamata. The choices that we mention are indicative and based on our personal taste. As we travel a lot, we know that it's important to get an advice from a native person about the local cuisine, because that way you are going to taste traditional flavors. So take a look.....
We suggest you this place because the food is very delicious and made with local products. It would be an omission if we didn't say that the bread is hand made by the owners of the restaurant. In addition, the place has amazing view to the messinian bay and you will find the sunsets rather spectacular. TIP: Try our favorite traditional plate which is rooster with pasta!!!

Τhis fish tavern is famous for its fresh fish and for its idyllic location (picturesque harbor and traditional settlement). You will have the opportunity to enjoy your meal and your Ouzo right next to the sea. Tip: Make sure to go early at the midday in order to find easily a table and we recommend you fried cod with "skordalia".
