Aloni Restaurant, Xerocampos. Get the bus from Platonos, spend a day lolling on the beach looking across to Kalymnos, plus a long lunch under the tamarisk trees…
Then, in the evening, Mylos Fish Restaurant. And me a vegan – my unfavourite experience there was looking over the wall next to our table and seeing in the shallows – an octopus. “Wow,” I said, without thinking, “there’s an octopus!” – and sealed my fishy friend’s fate. Out came the chef with a net, and the octopus soon became the next course for some patron. Never forgiven myself. Anyway, it’s a favourite destination for diners on Leros, and beautiful to look at, even if I’m at odds with its sourcing methods.
They both feature in my novel JIGSAW ISLAND – find out how, here:
