Syros is quieter and less popular with visitors than many of its neighbouring Greek islands – which include Mykonos, Andros and Tinos – so whether you’re dining at a taverna in the capital Ermoupoli or a French bistro in Poseidonia, you’ll find good value and authenticity.
Syros in Greece has managed to stay traditional and authentic while some of the islands surrounding it have become major tourist destinations. All of this is reflected in its landscape and in its eateries. Restaurants on Syros have a laid-back atmosphere, and offer local wines and quality Greek cuisine. But among all this tradition and nostalgia, there are also a few surprises that prove Syros is forward-thinking, meaning eating out on the island gives you the best of both worlds.
It might not look like anything special, but at Seminario, which is down a narrow street in the island’s capital, the food speaks for itself. Portions are large here, so if you’re not such a big eater, share your dish with someone else in your party. The atmosphere is easy-going and the staff can’t do enough for you. If you have a food intolerance or you’re vegan, this is the place to go. All diets are catered for with the same level of attention
