Lesvos restaurants are found anywhere around the island. Best places to eat are fish taverns right on the beach or at the port promenades of seaside villages. Molyvos, Plomari, Petra, Sangri, Skala Sikamias, and Skala Eressou have delicious fish taverns with fresh seafood right from the fishermen basket. Many Lesvos restaurants actually have their own boats and go fishing to catch their fish.
Cuisine in Lesvos includes dishes that accompany ouzo, the traditional product of the island, such as grilled octopus, fried vegetables, salted mackerel, and lakerda fish. Many dishes are also made with ouzo, such as ouzo meatballs.
