First Night Taverna and meal!
« on: January 17, 2017, 03:38:48 PM »
Ok folks the Season will soon be upon us so what I thought would be fun and a great taster for any newbies would be to tell everyone where you will go to eat on your first night in Arillas and what will you be having?

For us it will be Brouklis with feta stuffed pepper and cheese pies to start and the sublime lamb chops and moussaka for mains accompanied by some ice cold wine ....mmmmm...

My first night always has to be somewhere on the seafront. Usually we go to Vnceremos and have baked feta in the oven and Kleftiko if they have it on. That is if our first meal is in the evening. If breakfast then it would be at Gratziellas. If lunch then definitely gyros at Beachpoint.

If its July then there is only one place for us
Brouklis Table 13 with Phil and Jen it's an annual ritual
We may not be able to do it in July this year due to Jens operations, but with a little luck and if all is well I'm sure we will make it sometime between the start and end of the season.

First visit will be in May nothing in the pipeline but possibly Vavillas or Gratsella
If I'm not on the Football Pitch..... I must be in Arillas

 First vist arriving late evening 5th May so will eat at Mathraki, then think it will be Brouklis or Graziella but in the two weeks we will hopefully vist all of our favourites, Effi's Thomas for his fabulous fish, Kostas on The Beach, Marina, Kaloudis (for their yummy roast lamb,) but our absolute favourites are the first two on the list. We will also try the old Captains just can't remember the new name😃 day time coffee and beer will be at Beach Point.

For our second visit in June just repeat the list, but with Bills' sister and brother-in-law.

Oooo. Food talk! I'm all over this one :-)

Sunday 21st of May will find us either at Brouklis, Horizon, Gratziellas, Portofino, Marina, Vinceremos, Effi's, Thomas' or Armourada. For such a compact resort there's so much wonderful food to choose from. Who knows, we'll change our minds a hundred times before we get there. One thing for sure, we'll get round them all in the 11 nights we're there.

Right now I fancy Garlic Prawns at Effi's and Lewis you've made me want to try chocolate soufflé at the Horizon, never had that before.

The problem is, we always seem to be 'taken over by events'. Our intention, is always to eat at the Brouklis. However, the reality is quite often otherwise! That's the beauty of Arillas. You go for quick aperitif in the 'Nut, get talking to someone ( - you have maybe never met before, and then bump into someone that you have - ) and four hours later, find yourself asking George in the Malibu for a plate of chips to soak up the alcohol!

Happy. happy. happy.

If we only want a short walk it will probably be the Marina, or a short further toddle to the Thalassa, however if Kosta's on the beach is open early it might be there.  What a great choice, because all those mentioned above are well worth a visit.

It could be one of a few great tavernas but probably Portofino for their amazing vegetarian mousaka.  Effie's is a another or Kostas on the Beach. Or graziella or............... So many lovely familiar friendly faces to see too.
