Between the two main mountains of Folegandros, is this tavern with the wonderful view to the western side. With ideal greek local cuisine, don't miss to order "matsata", the specialty of the house - the hand-made pasta!

Staying at Lemon Tree Houses this was an obvious dinner spot as it's easily walkable. It's a little quiet at dinner time given it's a relatively isolated and un-touristed part of the island; we saw it was much busier at lunch time when riding to the beach. Nonetheless we had a solid dinner - good food, traditional, nice flavours. Nothing... More

The tavern Maria is the same with the tavern "Η Συνάντηση". Maria is the name of the owner and "chef". The food wasn't something special. Even the matsata was a heavy dish. I didn't like the tomato sauce at all: it was straight from the can.

This was our favorite meal during our entire trip to Greece! Simple, delicious, amazing food - sitting on the terrace overlooking the little town and grazing donkeys. Soaking up the heat and the slow pace of island life. Truly memorable.
