Thanks Amanda,
That's a shame, but the little bar is still worth the effort up the hill. It was always a little "different" there, which me and my lot always enjoyed. Pleasant little pool too.

Totally agree carolg but that gastro, never been served anything in its cooking pot before, was awesome, hippopots is definitely a stop for something I can take home to cook with

I am rather partial to bom bom lamb in Little Prince, and fresh prawns in Fantasea are amazing I could go on and on. Even basic things like bread and olives taste wonderful in San Stef

Let's face it - it's pretty good everywhere, and after a day of walking about, swimming, chatting, lounging, and all those things, it's almost always a great evening.

No - it's lamb stew with apricots. I usually have it.

Jumbo is correct. It's a great Zorbas dish. Not too far removed a traditional north African lamb tagine recipe

Excellent description. Rich gravy with chunks of lamb and a hint of cinnamon and allspice, plus the tiny explosions of fruity apricot, served with vegetables of your choice or rice. Adequately generous portions for those with capacious stomachs, especially washed down with a jug of house wine, but also subtle and packed with flavour. Not - perhaps - for those who wish to perform energetic Greek dancing, but fortunately most of us leave it to the waiters. Pavlos is one of the best dancers in Agios Stefanos, and watching him run, jump and kick, beaded with perspiration, is, I find, a perfect aid to digestion. Those of a fuller figure may later regret the generosity of the portions when they do the morning-after tape-measure test, but they will not rue the hints of Mediterranean taste-splendour that hang in the mind for years after experiencing this flavoursome and indulgent treat. Have a swim and a light lunch, then head to Zorbas and gorge on the food that fueled Odysseus before he set sail.

P.S. Please send this to Pavlos and I may get a free one.

I have eaten this gastromic delight in Waves,so it must be a traditional dish and not just confined to one restaurant.
