Demestixas Restaurant

We were told by our hotel staff that the Taverna at the end [corner] of the street was a good place to eat. Well, they were right...it is great! Demestixas was a wonderful spot across the road from the beach with exceptional views. My husband and I decided to try it and we were not… Continue reading Demestixas Restaurant

Diamond Palace Hotel – Gytheio

Akrogiali Beach – Restaurants

This small and sleepy village of Akrogiali - "the end of the beach" still has a number of good restaurants to choose from.

Maistrali Restrauant – Loutraki

I again opted for the pork souvlaki and my husband again had the eggplant with beef in a dish. Our wait staff were jovial and funny as… Continue reading Maistrali Restrauant – Loutraki

Apology to the GPS Lady

We found a new feature on Google Maps today that has made all the difference in how we view the GPS lady. We now have a much better understanding why she says the things she does. Her directions are not simply out of vindictiveness [for some of the names I have called her]. Or even,… Continue reading Apology to the GPS Lady
