Food culture on the island is no less wondrous. Traditional and delicious Greek dishes are interspersed with new delights unique to the island.
The influence of the ancient times can be felt, for example in the local fava bean dish, which got its name from the days of the Roman occupation and the Latin word favus for broad bean. The sun-dried tomatoes that you’ll find on menus are locally sourced and another one of the must-try nibbles.
Fishing on and in the pristine cobalt waters surrounding the island is world-class. Fish were transferred directly to the kitchens and tables of the island ever since its prehistoric past. The local fish dish par excellence — brantada — is recommended for seafood lovers and can be enjoyed with an unforgettable mix of seasoned cod or squid tucked alongside garlic salad.
