ATHENS – When we think of vacation time in Greece, enjoying fresh, deliciously prepared dishes at a seaside restaurant is one of those idyllic experiences not to be missed that keep tourists flocking to the country year after year. Among the charming seaside spots is Makarios Seafood Tavern at the Limani Mesogaias in Porto Rafti.

The freshest fish you will ever taste are among the items on the menu at this traditional seafood restaurant with a lovely view of the beautiful blue sea. The fish, caught daily from the boat docked just feet away, are served up as soon as possible, grilled to perfection and served simply with fresh lemon ready to squeeze on top and your choice of various side dishes. The classics, including Greek salad and grilled octopus, are also on the menu along with shrimp in tomato sauce with feta served in the little traditional oven-proof ceramic bowl. Specials of the day and seasonal dishes may also be on the menu, so ask the friendly staff for recommendations.
