Don't bother looking at the menu. Just ask Giorgio for a recommendation then sit back and wait. Had 'Lamb in the Paper' yesterday. Absolutely superb. Kleftiko starters are brilliant. The perfect place for lunch.

I ate a delicious lunch at Paligremnos with a kind and attentive server. Ordered the local sausage and grilled pepper special and an arugula/rocket salad. Both were large portions and delicious. The sausage dish also came with the creamiest eggplant I've ever had. Fabulous experience!

An old-fashioned Greek taverna of long standing in the village. The cooking is excellent and there are many choices. We ate there every day!
