“Really good food...”
Review of Batis Restaurant

Batis Restaurant
Cuisines: Greek
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 September 2013

We have just finished an excellent meal in Batis, which is just a little way down the pedestrianised street leading off the main square of this pretty village. Paralio Astros has certainly changed a lot since we first drove in, hungry, thirsty and tired after a long drive (back in 1986...). God, I feel old!

Batis was here then, and had been for about 100 years before that. Despite the fact that it's only mid-September, much of this area already feels as though the season is over. In fact we were the only diners in Batis tonight, although we did leave early, at least by Greek standards (21:30).

The owner helpfully explained what was available tonight. For starters we chose dolmades (really delicious) and an old favourite, fasolakia. After that, the boss (she-who-must-be-obeyed, etc) had an excellent rabbit stew with onions, while I settled for a lovely pork stew with peppers. This was washed down with a really good bottle of red, bottled in nearby Argos, produced by the taverna's owner. The owner was very attentive, without being intrusive, and was happy to try to fill us in about the recent happenings in the village and the fate of tavernas we had eaten in here, 25 years ago (I really do feel old!!).

Anyhow, an excellent meal, once again. Maybe a little more expensive than others on this trip, but P. Astros always had a strong local clientele.

We're here for one more night, before returning to the gloom of a Northern Irish winter. Please make our last day here hot & sunny. We want to come back already...
