Cafes/restaurants in vicinity of the plaka: "Local dining" Ithaki Restaurant Tip by kmbruening
Ithaki Restaurants: 5 reviews and 5 photos
Most of the local restaurants have a variety of dishes availible every day. There are good burgers and greek salads for lunch, and dinner is always a fun surprise. All of the meat and seafood seems to come from the island's resources. You can go inside and check out what are the choices of the day in the display cases. Wonderful lamb and chicken are often the meats, moussaka is popular, as is seafood of course. This is where I fell in love with octopus, but there are many options for those who prefer not to suck on suckers. :)
Favorite Dish: Just look for what's fresh. Basically anything in the cases is, as far as I understand. You can also inquire with the owner (I used very basic Greek and hand gestures) who are usually very happy to help.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Around the bay and a couple of streets in will give you an tour of almost all of the restaurants
