Gastronomy

Whether you choose one of the best restaurants of Ermoupolis and Poseidonia, either a traditional tavern on the seashore or you can even find yourself in the small mountainous villages of Apano Meria, the food in Syros will delight you with its taste.

If you prefer fresh fish, then you have to choose between the taverns that located on the beaches of Ermoupolis, Galissas, Kini, Vari, or Azolimnos.
In any case, you will have the chance to taste the traditional Cycladic cuisine and exceptional fresh fish from the fishermen of the area.

Many traditional recipes stand out in the island’s gastronomy such as Aetopita (a pie made with fish and vegetables), karabola (saucy snails with Sage), lachanodolma (cabbage leaves stuffed with rice) with raisins and other specialities including the meletinia cheese pies, marathopita (fennel pie), louiza (verbena), grilled pancetta, sisyra (pork), braised fligkouni (entrails) and local Psaraki (tenderloin). Yet the journey of tastes and flavours doesn’t stop there. It goes on with delectable desserts such as pastelaries (salted figs), traditional Turkish delights and delicious nougat-pies (chalvadopites).
