Paradise on Poros
I have written about Paradise Taverna before but we found this delightful advertisement stuck under the windshield wipers
not long ago and I thought I should give you all
Another Taste of Paradise
Paradise taverna is a rustic family run eating place in the hills where the only sounds are of trilling cicadas, barking dogs and jolly singing greeks. Chairs are outside under the grapevine in the summer and inside with a roaring open fire in the winter
On your way to the Poseidon Temple surrounded by olive trees,
lemon trees and vineyards, you come through a traditional taverna.
Antoni's family wanted to give a freshness to this place and made it
their Paradise. We offer you special home made plates using
our pure materials with the original Kiki's recipes.
You can taste: Cockerel with spaghetti. Baby lamp in vessel. Rabbit stifado. Homemade bread in wood over. Local Fousa's wine.....and many more
Of course the doors of your Paradise is open all day.
The gates of Paradise
In the grounds they have their own little chapel dedicated to local saint Agios Nektarios
Tables under the trees where you can enjoy Kiki's specialities which really are all made by her own hands and a jug or two of their own wine. The roosters and rabbits mentioned are their own and slaughtered on site but not in front of your eyes. Kiki carries on her mother-in-law's tradition baking her own sourdough bread which is cooked in an outside wood fire. They are huge loaves which are a bit solid after a few days but full of flavour
