Eleni & Yannis Petrakakis run this nice little place called "To Petrino" in my favorite little village of Agia Galini.

They serve genuine local drinks and mezes. These tasty little "appetizers" like e.g.; dolmades (dolmadathákia mé rízi), spicy little meatballs (keftedákia), crisp fresh fried smelt (maríthes tighanítes), cooked octopus (htapóthi vrastó), cooked shrimps (gharíthes vrastés), taramosaláta, scorthaliá, avgolémono, ......gosh it makes me drool. :rolleyes:

This all is served in their little cosy "stone house" (To Petrino in Greek) where the locals and the visitors meet, eat, and drink their mavros or tsipouro..no way any fancy drinks. <_<

Still about 2 years to go and I can visit them on a daily base :D

Here are some pics to make you envy me
