During our first journey to Sifnos we rented a 4WD Suzuki and with a map on my hands we'd done the amazing trip to Hieronissos, when we arrived, after the first grateful impact we started to felt hungry.
A couple of kind germans were in the same situation, but know what... there wasn't anything to eat or to drink! (the Psarotaverna was not working yet)
We asked to a local man that was working ceramic handcrafts and with a big smile he told us in a hard english (worst than mine, imagine...) "No sir, there are nothing here... but wait a minute, I'll go to talk with Petra, my wife", and disappeared.
After two minutes he came back and told us: "Go to the pier (30 meters) and ask for Yiannis the fisherman, buy him a fish or whatelse and come back, Petra will cook for you, endaxi? (OK?)
The germans and we said yes with a huge smile and we went to find Yiannis and our fishes.
When we were back the man had installed an old wooden table under a tree on the beach with four trembling old chairs, a pack of frozen Heineken and told us again: "OK, give me the fishes (melanourias, I remember) and wait here a half hour more or less" And disappeared again.
At all, Petra came with an old iron pot with the fishes ready to eat. Believe me, our best lunch in the island.
A bonus, Petra were working in Germany along 12 years, so, she spoke almost perfect german, our friends were stunned, really happy.
After a looong conversation (as long as the number of bottles of beer...) we back to Apollonia regreting because the time flyes.
Favorite Dish: Melanourias (a black/metal color fish) cooked with olive oil in a very strange manner, absolutely unforgettable, the meals and of course Petra and her husband, the Ceramic man.
Address: Hieronissos Village
Directions: 15 kilometers north of Apollonia, but I do insists, it isn't a restaurant, it is the home of a family, who cooked for us this fresh fish, just because they're incredible kind people.
Price: less than US$10
