The best dish by far is the sea bass on champagne risotto. A beautiful location overlooking the southern entrance to Gaios harbour.

It's always a pleasure to be welcomed by Alex, Aleka and their friendly team. The Genesis is great for lunch, dinner or just a drink and a snack. It's the perfect place to watch the world go by and engage in a spot of yacht-envy. I always enjoy the food and, as a veggie, find that my tastes are well... More
