If you ask for quality, tasty food on the island, you will be directed to Geitoniko tavern (many would describe it as Christina's tavern as she is the owner and the soul of the tavern). Located in one of the picturesque back streets in the Town very close to the port, you can lunch with the locals, famous Athenian visitors to Hydra including prominent lawyers and doctors.
Mrs. Christina in the kitchen and her husband, Mr. Manolis (who is responsible for the juicy, grilled meats as well as the excellent fish), guarantee a tasty lunch or dinner in a very friendly and homely environment. The courgette croquettes, split peas and fried vegetables will undoubtedly pique your interest on the menu.
Almond pie and sweet pastry is served for dessert. There are also tables on the roof terrace where you can marvel at the wonderful view.
