Votsalo Restaurant in Rousoum

During our trips to Alonnisos we always meet our good friend Eva, who operates the Maria Studios pension in Patitiri, for dinner at the Votsalo Restaurant in Rousoum at least once during our stay. We have always been very pleased with the quality of the food we order there, and with the portion sizes as well. During July of 2023 we visited Votsalo again, and as usual, the food and the service was excellent.

The kolokethiakeftedes (zucchini/feta patties) appetizer we ordered was delicious, the vlita (cooked greens) was fresh and nicely seasoned, and the chicken souvlaki was very moist and tasty as well. Like virtually every restaurant or taverna on the island, the Votsalo Restaurant is a family-run business, and it is operated by a very nice couple named Nikos and Ioanna along with their three sons, and all of them are always really friendly and welcoming.

For those who haven’t visited Alonnisos before, Rousoum is a small bay/beach located east of the main port of Patitiri. If you have a rental car or motorbike, you get there by taking the main road up from Patitiri harbor and then keep going past the first cross-street (where the school is on the left) following that main road all the way down and around to Rousom. Votsalo is right on the waterfront – the first restaurant in from the road. Those who like to walk also can travel there by foot, but with the understanding that the walk back up is quite steep in spots.
