I couldn't work out from the other reviews what sort of restaurant this was. It was on my list to try because it was highly rated, but the menu outside wasn't tremendously appealing. Somehow ended up in the next door Mythos instead after visiting an actual working cashpoint and hearing nice jazz coming from the garden. But after waiting for ten minutes to be given a menu, and seeing what other diners were being given to eat (it all looked a bit cheap and cheerful) we scarpered, and decided to give Amfithea a try after all. I am so glad we did. The interior is stylish, with elegant tables with simple white linen. A lot of the food is local. Fish is fresh. I started with a salad comprising lovely fresh crisp leaves, halloumi, apple, raisins, pine nuts and a fabulous dressing. The waiter recommended local shrimp for my main course, which would have been lovely, I'm sure, but I had sea bass instead, which was served with aubergine, courgette and carrot, a small portion of rice (despite what one reviewer said, these are not 'huge' portions, but just normal) and oregano freshly picked from the waiter's garden. I did, however, go with the waiter's recommendation for pudding, and I am so glad I did. Traditional homemade orange pie with ice cream. Basically like a Greek marmalade cake. Beautiful. And when I said so he described how it was made and even offered to write down the recipe for me.
Three course meal for two without wine came to 70 Euro. Take cash, or phone ahead to see if they will take cards. At the moment they are quite new, and, like so many other places, affected by the crisis. Places like this need our support. They are making delicious, distinctive food.
