Final Dinner (at Taverna Hellinikon) and Evening Evening Out in Skiathos | Travel and Life style Diaries


This is our final dinner in Skiathos Old Town.

Skiathos Old Town and the island itself is beautiful and incredibly considerably a hugely advised vacation location for us. We have enjoyed our remain right here. The vehicle-totally free Old Town is incredibly quite and classic, filled with inviting boutique style retailers and open taverna seating on cobblestone streets. Skiathos holds up to the normal of a charming Greek town on a Greek island.

Our final dinner on the island was spent at Taverna Hellinikon

As we had been walking down the road from exactly where we parked the scooter on the edge of the Old Town to the center, we passed by this “Cat booth”.

There are quite a few stray cats in Greece and the Greek Islands are complete of them, a single becoming Skiathos. Cats right here are fed every single day by the Skiathos Cats Welfare Association and they welcome donations in sort such as cat meals and milk.

Dutchman and I are cat lovers and we can not wait to have our personal cat quickly when we move into our new property. The property has been turned more than to us final March and we are busy with the interior finishing. We would want an additional month or additional just before we can move in and simply because of this delay, our yearly summer season vacation trip to the Greek Islands will be postponed. We generally go in June, but with the new property and moving in, we are pushing back the vacation to September.

So I am cheering myself up with these old photographs of Skiathos =)

We chose Taverna Hellinokon for the apparent motives.

Firstly, the taverna has a good incredibly central and open place in the Old Town. Secondly, they have classic reside Greek music playing. Some Greek vacation goers will possibly say that Greek music gets worse on your ears following a week-extended remain, like a broken record playing the entire time, but not to us! Thirdly, they have the fish I wanted to consume on the menu.

To commence, the restaurant gave us some bread and olives and a regional sweet raspberry-like aperitif. I really like consuming bread on added virgin olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper.

Dutchman and I had been feeding the cats with some morsels below our table till I saw this sign. As well late, haha. We had the thought that the cats right here on Skiathos Island are properly pampered with meals. If not the cat association and the locals feeding them, it is the vacationers.

Anyway, I had a slice of grilled swordfish that came with baked and partly grilled potatoes and a side salad. The Dutchman had this incredibly wealthy moussaka, which is a usually Greek oven dish with base components such as aubergine, beef, and cheese.

We had been seated proper across the Greek musicians. It wasn’t that loud, we very enjoyed the music, probably simply because we knew it is our final evening on the island.

Greek dish: Moussaka 

My dinner: Grilled swordfish

Right after dinner coffee.

Skiathos is produced well-known by the Mamma Mia! film which was shot on place on the island. There are boat trips from nearby islands to pay a visit to Skiathos in 1 day so the Old Town can get a chock-complete for the duration of peak summer season months.

Right after dinner, as it was our final evening in town, Dutchman and I went about the Old Town for the final time, strolling in the tiny alleys, checking out the retailers and lastly finishing the evening with some spirits at a single of the bars with an open terrace close to the harbour.

It wasn’t an eventful evening. It was low-crucial, good, balmy and just ideal for us.

The above gallery is providing me a lot of inspiration! In my new property, I will have my personal atelier on the second floor exactly where I can attempt on artistic pursuits such as painting, art creation and quite a few additional. I am so searching forward.

We had some beers at the Rock ‘n Roll Cafe. The bar cafe sits on a stairway that leads to the Old Harbour. This is a incredibly busy and good location with a excellent vibe and good music. Often the bars are competing with each and every other’s music. Nonetheless, a good location to sit and watch people today and the surroundings, a incredibly standard issue to do when on vacation I reckon.

Then it was time to close the evening and stroll back to the apartment.

A regional cultural center and museum.
