I think I'm going to ask Spiros to make the rabbit stifado a menu regular. Totally yummy.

Just starting to get into training for July. Last year I got dragged onto the dance floor on Tuesday nights by a variety of lovely ladies eager to join me in what my daughters disparagingly call "Daddy dancing" but which I would describe as a kind of of energetic free-form balletic disco.

Great food - great fun. That's Nafsika.

Now thats my kind of dancing. What do sons and daughters know anyway. I suspect Jimbo we're from the disco generation.

I think they don't like to see their parents as physical beings who can jump around a bit. Parents should be knitware and old socks. It also needs a kind of music with a proper pulsation to get into the mood, and frankly, I don't get that off most contemporary stuff anyway.

I predate the disco generation quite a bit, I'm sad to say. But I am half-Welsh and, given a good pulsing track, strange Druidic energies flow into me. I just love dancing. Most of what I do is brain-work; when the music plays there's no brain - just a desire to move and jump and be an animal.

Anybody else suffer from offspring embarrassment?

Jim, how have we managed to miss this Tuesday night performance from you? Is it advertised on the specials board?! :D

We have just had the most enjoyable evening at The Little Prince. I had the sizzling steak which was as tasty as it was dramatic. My wife had the stifado which was well cooked and very tasty, if a little dry. The entertainment resurrected memories of San Stefanos in the mid eighties, and very pleasant ones they were too. A great evening and we will most certainly be going back,

Last night we chose the Nafsica. It has certainly smartened up since we were last there, the outdoor area is very pleasant. We even renewed an aquaintance from over 30 years ago which was a real bonus. Lyn had Sofrito ani i the steak royale. Both were well presented, well cooked, and very enjoyable. The service was cheerful and attentive. Diners were entertained with some dancing but you had to be sat to the right hand side of the out door seating area for the best view . Lyh is determined to book a table on that side for the next time. She does enjoy being fully immersed in the experience.

Food at Nafsika is usually excellent. Front table facing the bar is a good choice!

If rabbit stifado is on the menu, that's outstanding. Veal sofrito is also one of my favourites. Spiros really does understand food. For example, if you fancy lamb chops but don't want them burnt to charcoal (which is the usual Greek mode) ask for them a bit pink.

We're enjoying an unexpected last minute break on a budget this week, many restaurants looked to be doing a roaring trade at around 9pm last night. Fellow travellers are reporting fabulous specials and bargains all around the village. For us the three course special at Yiannis restaurant, near tasty corner, was outstanding at 9 euros ! House white was also more than acceptable. Romanza food and hospitality remains top notch. Even though 1.12 is painful compared to previous trips, the village remains outstanding value. Enjoy it when you get here folks.

Last evening's dinner adventure was to Zorbas and it was an excellent selection. Their menu includes some atypical choices, including pork fillet with prunes in a mavrodaphne sauce and Krassato. We both agreed they were poli nostimo and we would choose them again. Some traditional entertainment   added to a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

I don't know if Spiros is doing music this year. If he is, I will attempt to shake it about a bit :-)

Last night we paid a visit to Beer o Clock. We were made very welcome by Spiro and Costas. We both selected something off the grill and the food was really first rate. Perhaps a more subdued atmosphere than a couple of the other restaurants but there is nothing wrong with a quiet evening if the food and service are good, which they most certainly were.
