Akrogiali, a popular fish taverna in Lakkoma

If you are a fan of fish and seafood, Akrogiali is certainly one of the tavernas of Samothraki you'll visit more than once.

The taverna is in Lakkoma, on the western side of the island, 8 km away from Kamariotissa, on the road to Pachia Ammos beach. Its name means "seashore" in Greek.

It's very easy to find it - just keep an eye for the name of the restaurant painted in bright red on a wall adjacent to the road. The taverna is above the road and is overflowing with vegetation.

Every day the restaurant buys fresh fish and seafood from the local fishermen. The owner will be happy to serve you a good variety of fish, among which anchovies, sea breams, mullets and the lesser-known sargos or lithrini. The prices vary between 25 and 45 €/kilogram.

The lobster is the most expensive seafood (at 50 €/kg), but you can also try the mussels, the squids, the shrimps, or the tender octopus, cooked in various ways with prices ranging between 6 and 10 € per plate.

That one friend who doesn't like fish can always choose something from the rich appetizer selection (3.5-4 € per portion) or one of the classic main dishes like chicken/pig roast, lamb chops, burgers, or sausages (6-6.5 € per portion).

Plan your day so that you will get to Akrogiali in the afternoon, just before the sun starts to go down. A good meal together with a glass of wine or ouzo and the burning sunset on the horizon will make for an unforgettable memory.

Before you take your leave go for a short walk on the beach and bask in the last rays of colored light.

There's also accommodation adjacent to the taverna: Akrogiali Rooms.
