Xigia Tavern - Orthonies - Xigia beach


Xigia restaurant is one of the most appreciated by local people both for the quality of the food and for the unique atmosphere that only here you can find.
Taverna Xigia is opened both for lunch and dinner and during the day you have the opportunity to eat under the pines’ shadow with a stunning view overlooking crystal waters, Alykes bay and the Peloponniso Coast.
You will have your food served on a panoramic terrace over the sea and as you start to taste some dishes you will discover why many local people use to come here every week.
Here does not exist a real list... in fact the food is prepared fresh every morning and Spiros, the owner, will be pleased to tell you which dishes of meat or fish you can choose.
Any time you will come here they will also offer you a large tray full of baked bread with a traditional olive oil.
At Taverna Xigia you can taste many particular starters as eggplants in tomato sauce, baked cheese, grilled octopus and many others.
As main course there’s a large selection that goes from the traditional Bifteki (the best in the island) and pork in wine sauce to seafood as grilled mussels, fresh swordfish or king prawns.
We inform you that the fish you can find here change every day.
