We stayed at the Mi Abeli for 2 weeks last June so it was a natural choice for a meal on our first night. We were made to feel so welcome that although the Lamb Mi'abelli was not quite as tasty as some meals we enjoyed later on during our holiday, the whole experience was so pleasurable that despite the wide choice of tavernas in the resort, we dined there twice more during our fortnight.
This restaurant opened last June having acquired the services of the chef from The Pines so consequently it was not surprising to find that the food was absolutely first-class. Because the chef is given free rein to prepare his own dishes, there is always the chance that you will find something just that bit different on the menu. I tried the pork tenderloin which was everything I could have hoped for!! Because Ianni and Gabrielle had only just opened, there were a few teething problems with the service but that in no way detracted from the overall experience which was a delight. Although quite pricey, the meal was of such a high standard that I would have to say that it represents excellent value for money. Not your typical Greek taverna certainly and not what you would necessarily expect in a resort like Skala but well worth a few visits!! We'll be going back anyway.
how long does the site take to update?
we should have guessed - 8-30 on a Friday night and only one table occupied. The fish had no flavour and the salad was the most uninspiring of our entire stay. However, once we had got the meal out of the way and could enjoy the pianist and the beautiful vista, the sprit of Skala prevailed!
Next time we'll eat at The Pines and walk down the steps after dinner.
The only comment I would add is that the airline Kosmar use to fly out of Bristol (Islandsflug) seem to specialise in providing the most cramped aircraft on God's Earth (or up in the sky I suppose)featuring a six-inch wide aisle which is particularly unpleasant when one of the cabin crew is suffering from BO but I agree that the reps on the Island do a good job with trying to sort out the weekly chaos that characterises Sundays at the airport.
And one question - can anybody explain why Kosmar have fallen out with the Starlight?
