Old Village – Taverna Peri Orexios

Located in the Old Village of Alonnisos, just above the grocery store that stands right in front of the bus stop, Taverna Peri Orexios (see photo to your right) offers a nice selection of meals. In addition to having a small number of tables at its second-floor location, this restaurant has quite a bit of seating downstairs and directly across the road in an area we have come to call “the forest” (see photo below and on the left). It’s actually a relatively small spot of green space with large pine trees just beyond the bus stop/taxi stand. From Peri Orexios you also get a view of the short road leading up to the plateia (town square), and of the Old Village itself.

Taverna Peri Orexios originally opened in the summer of 2007, and quickly became a favorite among Europeans who own homes in the Old Village. It’s operated by a gentleman named Panayiotis (Panos). Its menu is very eclectic and creative. We are are particularly fond of their sautéed mushrooms, chicken with Basmati rice, and a unique potato dish that is cooked with bacon and yoghurt. We ate at this restaurant several times during our trips in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2016 – 2018, and 2019 as well, and were always very satisfied with the quality of the food and the service as well.

Note that in addition to being seated and eating a meal at the restaurant, Taverna Peri Orexios offers both carry-out and delivery service if you happen to be staying in the Old Village.
