Poros may lack the glitz of Hydra and the cachet of Spetses, but it charms visitors with its genuine Greek island experience. Explore the terracotta streets of the port town and savour delicious culinary treats at traditional tavernas.
Sample local delicacies like gouna – mackerel fish opened and dried in the sun, or lamb kleftiko. Many taverns on the island specialise in these dishes, as well as other famous Greek cuisine.

3. Askeli Beach Bar
The All Day Restaurant Askeli is one of the latest additions to Poros dining scene. Its cosmopolitan location at a popular beach offers the perfect setting for its innovative menu of creative Mediterranean and Greek dishes.
The food is authentic and the tavern offers generous portions and affordable prices. The owners are very friendly and offer a warm atmosphere where you can enjoy your meal.
Most of the restaurants in Poros are family taverns located either on the port or in popular beaches such as Askeli. Taverns in Poros town get very busy at night to dine under the stars. Among my personal recommendations are the following: – KARAVALOS (the snail) in Poros town for great fresh fish and village sausages. – Apagio, on the harbor front, for seafood and great view.

You can also play beach volley and water ski. There are bars, hotels and taverns nearby. There is a bus stop in front of the beach that passes at frequent intervals and takes you to Askeli in less than 5 minutes.
5. Paradisos Restaurant
Named after the classic Sicilian film, this restaurant serves a variety of Italian comfort food. Its cozy, welcoming atmosphere is perfect for making memories with friends and family. The menu features traditional favorites such as homemade pasta and caesar salad. The restaurant also offers a range of delicious desserts.
The partners seem to have fantasized on the theme of simple Italian cafes for this casual spinoff. Servers wear proletarian button-up jackets of navy blue cotton as they carry amaro and tiramisu to bare wood tables.
The food, in keeping with the small-plates regimen of Estela, is designed to be savored, and it’s generally very good. That said, it occasionally overreaches. I’d sidestep the thickish pork Milanese, which has a flavor that seems to be diluted by its salty companions.
