Damianos in Paros
Damianos Tavern is located in Ampelas, a small seaside village on the northern side of Paros, at a distance of 5 km east of Naoussa. The village has a beautiful beach and a quaint fishing port, and this is a perfect place for people who want some peace and solitude. The tavern is quite a sprawling place with both indoor and outdoor dining. The indoor dining area is a charming place with wooden tables covered in white cloth dark wooden chairs and a dark wood decoration, all of which lend a classy timeless appeal very much like the stone manors of the English countryside. An outdoor dining area topped by a trellis ceiling has white-painted tables and chairs for seating and overlooks the small bay where fishing vessels anchor and bring in the catch of the day. The staff of Damianos brings in fresh catch from fishing boats just across the tavern and use it to prepare a variety of seafood dishes based on local recipes. The food is amazingly tasty, sea food in particular and the service is very efficient. The fish is perfectly cooked and it is quite popular with locals and tourists. Some of their signature dishes include gouna (grilled sundried mackerels), Karavalous (snails cooked in a delicious sauce), lobster pasta and fish soup. A well-stocked bar made of wood and stone with a fine selection of wines as well as other international liquor brands fit for the connoisseur are served at Damianos.

Damianos is a taverna right on the sea. After a couple of days in Ampelas we were longing to have fresh fish and we were fortunate to find Damianos. The tavern is simple butelegant and the environment was very welcoming. The fish we tasted at Damianos was freshly cooked and perfect. My son is not much of a seafood eater, but he liked lobster in wine. The freshly caught seafood display motivates anyone to order some and taste the best flavor of Greece. The service at the restaurant was very prompt. Waiters came to us immediately after we finished the plates. The cost of food actually depends on the amount of seafood you order and the type of wine you taste. Have in mind that fresh fish in Greece cost per kilo.
