local cuisine and restaurants in Leros
Be it in small, waterfront taverns and restaurants – to be found at practically every beach around the island of Leros – or in posh restaurants, one is certain to enjoy the succulent Leros cuisine and taste the original Greek food, savoring local sea delicacies – known as “koukouvades” – fish marinated in a spicy sauce, pulp on the grill, salted chub mackerels, chick-pea pies and local cottage cheese (known as “myzithra”).
When it comes to deserts, no-one could resist a treat of “pougkakia”, the “svingoi” and “xerotigana” ( a Greek version of dimples). Also to be tried: the “diassogalo” – a local sweet aperitif – just as the “soumada” – a cinnamon-based drink – and the “guava”, a kind of fruit one only finds in Leros.
Surrounded by a beautiful garden with geraniums, pergolas and palm trees in the Restaurant Esperides in Krithoni, one of the best restaurants in Leros, offers a truly different taste.
Inside the charming and peaceful surroundings of the restaurant Esperides you will enjoy French and Greek cuisine, delicious appetizers and carefully selected wines.
