One night on Samos. A bit like sipping from Samos wine and then seeing if you like to have the whole bottle a bit later. Anyway, the reasons why we are here is the small hotel Armonia Bay hotel. A good alternative for the bigger (all inclusive) hotels on Samos. So from the receptionist we find out about Dona Rosa in the small village of Avlaki. Aris Marinakis is the host, together with his wife Roxane.
It is the best possible sea view in Samos that you can get from a taverna, with Dona Rosa’s terrace almost dropping into the crystal and calm water and next to a tranquil pebbled beach. Aris and Roxane serve a fresh a uncomplicated cuisine with lots of veggie options. We loved their fava and stuffed peppers, home made dips and a great salad with avocado. Relaxing, exclectic decor, jazzy tunes in the air, friendly service and good prices. For us it’s a reason why to come back to Samos. And drink the whole bottle!
