Alekos Kakouris – Owner of Bleximo Tavern at Kalamia Beach, Corinth27-04-2015 14:19Mr Kakouris, tell us, how did you come up with the idea of opening this business, with this specific name? (Bleximo means A mess in Greek).Because I grew up in the field of catering, my idea was to create something pretty original, with a unique style and its base in the city of Corinth. So I chose the beach Kalamia and my wish has now come true. The story behind the name has to do with a discussion I had with my wife, back when we were discussing the details about the place we would open. She asked about the things we would mix, the “mess” we would create, and that word stuck in my mind from then…Tell us a few things about your cuisine.Well, the best thing about our cuisine, which is exclusively based on Mediterranean flavors, is that everything we make, we make at the time, after our customer’s order. Only fresh ingredients are used, either from the sea or meat. There are also some special dishes you only get to understand their taste and quality, along with their great price, if you try them.What would you recommend to a customer who would come for the first time?We always ask him if he wants to try seafood or a dish with meat. If he asks for seafood, then he must taste the “saganaki” which is cooked with sheep feta cheese, juicy shrimps and a delicious sauce. If he wants to drink the Greek tsipouro, then we recommend the spicy saucage, one of our specialties, and of course our salads. We serve the “choriatiki” in a different way, in bread. We also serve the “Bleximo” salad, which is made with arugula, lola and cream cheese and is extremely tasty. Besides those, we do have rich meat varieties, with kebab, sausages and chicken fillet.What about your wine list? What labels does it include?We serve labels from known wine producers, but I do produce my own as well. Here, you will have the chance to taste delicious white, red and rose wine.
It opened in 2004 and soon became one of the favourite dining spots in Santorini. It is called Metaxy mas which means.. between us, but it is not a secret any more that this restaurant has a rich menu with almost 40 different dishes and appetizers based on traditional Greek cuisine.
We have been choosing Parea Tavern for our meals and dinners for 14 years! Every time someone from Touristorama travels to the island of Santorini, he enjoys authentic Greek cuisine at the terrace of this restaurant in the heart of Fira. And we are not the only ones. Thousands of tourists include it among their favorites on the volcanic island.
The Marmita Restaurant is now a part of the history of Santorini, since it has been operating in Megalochori since 2004. From 2013 it s been running under the observation of new owner Giannis Manikas and the sense of renewal is obvious.
Touristorama has been travelling all around Greece and its islands for over a decade. This year, during our trip to Naxos, the biggest of the Cyclades complex, we discovered an interesting spot, perfect for your night out on the island… which is what we do best: finding the best places and then propose you should visit them! Prime is a Scandinavian Bar, located on a privileged position in Chora of Naxos, opposite the port. It’s been operating for 21 years and enjoys a great fame to both foreign and local tourists.
More than just a famous tourist destination, Santorini boasts a romantic scene where you can have some really memorable moments with your partner. The time when the sun sets deep down to the Aegean Sea and the sky gets these amazing orange colors is the best to enjoy a cocktail. One of the best places to do so is the Classico bar restaurant in the capital of Fira.
