You are, by the way, eating outdoors here - just greenery for a roof.

Traditional salad with barley rusks - a favourite.
pixel
Grilled aubergine with a yoghourt and mint dressing
pixel
Beetroot salad - made with goats' cheese, crumbled into the dressing
pixel
Lindian (small) prawns which you eat whole - cooked in white wine
pixel
black 'gigantes; (butter beans) in a sauce made from carob - unusual - but lovely
pixel
medallions of fillet steak in pomegranate sauce - it was absolutely mouth-watering!

This blog is about eating in Lindos' finest restaurant and sampling some fantastic Greek cuisine.

Mavrikos is one of the oldest restaurants in Lindos village. Over the past 10 years I have eaten in most restaurants in the village and though there is strong competition - notably from Ambrosia, Mavrikos does not compare with any of them in terms of sheer originality and invention and I always end up there!

Dimitris Mavrikos is a simply great chef. The tastes and combinations you experience in this award-winning restaurant are just fabulous, the prices are reasonable. On the down side the service can be variable - but I would put up with a lot to taste this food!

Its the Greek way to move on for puddings and straight after this delicious meal I was off to Gelo Blu (also owned by the Mavrikos family) in the centre of the village for the most amazing Banoffie Pie I've ever had!

????? I like the idea (in a theoretical way) of moving on for dessert somewhere else. A bit of exercise would often be beneficial to help make a bit of room for dessert. I'm not sure in practice however, could I be bothered to get up out of the chair...
