This is a bit off the main road, so you need to search on a map before setting off. It is worth the effort as we found out! The best Moussaka we had in our two week stay. All home made with excellent service. Lovely view of Stalós due to the location up the hill.

Definitely worth finding, it's a 5 minute walk (if that) from the main street (directions from another post). Food and wine were absolutely delicious and extremely good value. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend the grilled feta!!! Would go back and would definitely recommend going!

My family discovered amethystos in 2010 during a week long reunion. We enjoyed Amethystos several times and especially the family atmosphere and the amazing traditional foods. It was off season and we were invited into the kitchen. Thank you for special memories.

This is a small place outside of the busy tourist street. The food was amazing and we went back 3 nights in a row to try different meals. The place is a family affair and they really look after you. Amazing food for a great price. I highly recommend it.

This was interesting experience. No fish in the menu at all. Waitress was not speaking english, and the restaurant which is not close wasn't cheap.
