Tinos has some amazing taverns and restaurants and the quality of food is quite high!

To my opinion, Sifnos and Tinos islands have two of the best cuisines of Greek traditional food!

Usually, when we visit we rarely don’t recommend such places, as they tend to change quite often every year.

But for Tinos, we will make an exception and we will highlight some of our favourite cafes and restaurants!

Athmar – Pyrgos

Another all-day restaurant bar, which is located on the quaint square of the beautiful Pyrgos village.

We ate a fantastic brunch and we visited for a 2nd time to try the dinner menu and it didn’t disappoint us! delicious dinner! Excellent food in the fantastic Pyrgos square!

But the highlight of the Athmar is Vangelis, who has as a motto “feel like a local” and he totally means it!

He will make sure that you have a great time at this bar-restaurant and he will recommend you the best places on the island!

He gave us some of his secrets about the island and I am going to pass them on to you!!

Svoura – Komi

We love when someone recommends a restaurant to us and we try it.

But it is a totally fantastic feeling when we find by accident a restaurant and when we try it, it turns out to be amazing!

And this is the case with Svoura!

We were following a hiking trail and we missed a turn (I blamed my partner for this miss, but she blamed me! So, I called it a tie!).

So, we arrived by mistake at the picturesque square of Komi village! And we fell in love with the square!!


We tried Svoura’s food and we weren’t disappointed! The food is fantastic and the service even better!

We visited 3 times the restaurant, as we wanted to taste the rooster with pasta and every time something happened and we couldn’t try this specific dish!

But finally, we made it and it was just awesome!

Xoreutra – Kampos village

Another tavern that we spotted while we were hiking on the island! (It came to my mind that we were focused more on finding taverns than actually walking the path!)

It is located in the heart of Kampos village in a beautiful setting! The food is delicious and the service even better!

Mayou – Isternia

In Isternia village, they have been advised to visit Mayou and Exomeria all-day bars.

We managed to visit only the Mayou bar, so if you have been to Exomeria bar, please let us know if you liked it!

Mayou has magnificent views of the sea and some of the best cocktails on the island!

Kaktos bar – Chora

We had been told to pay a visit to Kaktos bar, which is close to Chora and has some excellent cocktails and a breathtaking view!

Unfortunately, it wasn’t open when you were there, as it is was quite early in the season, but it is on our list for next time!
