One of the best well-kept gastronomic secrets of the island is located near Moni village and Panagia Drosianni church. A 550m unpaved road will lead you to an overgrown scenery where Kalliopi awaits to amaze you. The spot is quiet and relaxing under the cooling shade of trees where the DIY stone and wooden furniture are placed. It is a family run taverna with a very strong local colour. Its meat oriented menu is short yet delicious. Some of the rare occasions where everything in the menu is produced and cooked in-house since the family has its own farm and animals. An excellent choice for meat and cheese lovers.
Go for the slowly simmered goat -tender and hearty, with an impressive depth of flavor- as well as the roasted pork, the fresh salads and the infamous local potatoes, crispy and sizzling out of the pan. Complete your meal with one of the traditional spoon sweets over some refreshing, creamy yogurt, while admiring the breathtaking view to the valley unfolding before you - this will be an experience to remember.
