    Village of the gods
    This village is perfect. It has retained its "Greekness" and yet many foreigners have bought homes here and happily become part of the friendly community. Mina's taverna, in the village square, is one of the best on the island. The views are wonderful and the easy access to Hora and the best beaches makes it all the more attractive.

    Great great restaurant
    Are you looking for some authentic experience? "Mina" is the place to go. But you have to be a meat lover as most of the menu is about meat. All products from food to vegetables comes from their own farm. So, the quality is amazing.
    The atmosphere of the restaurant is also very nice as it is located on the main square of Glinado village and it is the gathering point of inhabitants of the village.
