"Restaurant Schlepping..." Symi Island Tourist Trap Tip by nickandchris
Symi Island Tourist Traps: 1 reviews and 0 photos
As soon as the trip boats arrive and unload their cargo of grockles the restauraters are out in force, waiting to pounce on all and sundry as they troup through the town." Best food, best prices, come and sit down." I hate this. I'm not even allowed to pick up a menu to compare prices without being leapt upon and dragged to a table.The whole town seemed to carry on like this once the boats arrived. Amazingly, as soon as the boats had rounded up their passengers, the restaurants closed their doors and shut up shop until the evening. Lo and behold you if you haven't eaten by this time.
In the evenings we managed to find a better deal, a souvlaki place, but for some reason, this closed at 9.30pm.
The one restaurant we ate at we were over-charged and short changed so not a pleasant memory of Symi.
Unique Suggestions: Either grin and bear this treatment or refuse to be hassled. Try somewhere else where you're not bothered as much. Or make for Pedi instead or have a picnic.
