Mistral in Paros
Mistral Restaurant is located in Naoussa, a charming Cycladic fishing village that has an even more charming tiny fishing harbor. The harbor is crowded by fishing boats and numerous restaurants and taverns that line the harbor. One such is Mistral. The cuisine at this fine restaurant is Greek, although many of the classic recipes have been tweaked to give them a modern twist. As in most of the quay-side taverns, the most popular items on the menu are of course the seafood. Fresh fish straight out of the nets arrive daily in the fishing vessels. Fish soups made from mussels, octopus, squids and other shell fish are equally popular, but guests may need to place order the previous day. The dessert menu includes the local specialties: Petimezinia (pancakes smothered in honey) and pumpkin pie. The view from the restaurant to the old port of Naoussa is excellent. Mistral is owned by two brothers, Giorgos and Nontas Malamatenios, and the restaurant was designed by a famous local architect.
