Kythera Island, Greece.
In Chora it is not easy to find both good food and a pleas ant setting together.
Zorbas, in the main street, is known locally for its baked lamb at weekends, and the family-run
O Salonikos, on the main road, has commendably fresh dishes at reasonable prices; but both places slightly lack atmosphere.
One of the best tavernas to eat at on the island is Skandeia at Palaiopolis: it has excellent fresh wine, freshly-caught fish, and a variety of home-made, vegetable pittakia; the owners are welcoming and the setting is shady and beautiful.
At nearby Avlemonas, Korali also has good fish.
Kapsali has a number of adequate tavernas, of which O Magos is perhaps the best.
For Kytheran honey, Yiannis Protopsaltis at Mitata is recommended.
