Patmos Restaurants Eat at the wonderfully authentic, especially friendly tavernas featured in the photo essay: the Grillakis family's Diakofti, the Kanelis family's Tzivaeri and Vangelis. All feature traditional dishes for a true taste of Pátmos. The island also has more formal restaurants such as Benetos, serving Mediterranean classics on 14 tables overlooking the Aegean Sea. Benetos is only open from June to October for dinner, so be sure to make a reservation. Vegghera Restaurant serves creative gourmet Greek cuisine in an elegant setting overlooking a vibrant harbor.
