Two visits in two weeks to Bilaeti - first visit was just my husband and son for lunch, followed a few days later by four of us again having lunch.

Its well worth the drive though the island's interior and Bilaeti is an unassuming building on first look - out front is a lovely water feature and the interior is in typical traditional Greek style. The staff made us extremely welcome and made recommendations to help four very indecisive Brits! The meats done on the spit are amazing, the pork melts in your mouth and is beautifully seasoned. You get HUGE portions so bring your appetite. A side salad was enough for four of us. We enjoyed great service in such lovely surroundings. The staff are really helpful and whilst we were settling the bill brought us lovely cake and apricots from the garden to enjoy before we left. Definitely worth a trip.

We had a recommendation from The Brothers Hotel in Kampos Valley to try this taverna. We had been to Homers Tomb and travelled back towards Chora before stopping here. It was a great experience from start to finish. We ABSOLUTELY relished the beetroot salad starter, so much so that I will try to replicate it at home, followed by lamb and goat (me being brave with the goat) - so good!! Do not hesitate to try the food here. It's very good. I just wish the flies would 'do one' - but don't we all! Go try it, I don't think you will be disappointed.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST FOOD I have eaten in long time. Fresh salads and vegetable (from their own garden). Soft delicious meat, both bbq and cooked. (Try the Nios goat in Dill aniseed - Anithos). All served in the gardens by smiling helpful family staff. Prices very good. NOT TO BE MISSED. Trudie Daphnie - Athens
