To Koutouki Tou Nikola
Restaurant, Greek, $$$
In the lovely village of Metsovo, in the Pindus mountain range, travelers will find many enticing restaurants, but To Koutouki Tou Nikola, which means Nicolas’s little box, is a definite must-try. And once you’ve stepped inside, you will quickly understand why. While you are sure to find all the typical taverna dishes, also try the local delicacies, including anything with metsovone, the local cheese, or the hilopites (a sort of Greek pasta) in chicken broth or, if you are a meat eater, the lamb kleftiko. It is not surprising that To Koutouki is a favorite with locals.
