Mediterranean inspired restaurant Cielo e Mare offers gourmands the perfect setup; open air interiors, panoramic views of Grikos Bay, and discreet, personalised service, guaranteeing a truly memorable dining experience. Designed by Executive Chef Nicos Constantinou, a new degustation menu offers enticing signature dishes, with an innovative blend of Italian flavours and Mediterranean influences. All raw ingredients in the degustation menu are sourced locally, originating from the Dodecanese islands, and fresh seasonal products are perfectly paired with a variety of local and international wine labels. Guests can expect dishes like Shrimp Tostada, Beetroot and Goat Salad, Red Mullet Bouillabaisse and Lamb served with Potato Souffle, and the island favourite, freshly caught Aegean Seabass with Lemon Beurre Blanc. End on a sweet note with rich Chocolate Espresso Truffles, before admiring the sunset with a creative cocktail. 

Travellers looking for authentic Greek food with a side of picturesque sea views should pay a visit to the resort’s traditional taverna, Plefsis. Located on a stretch of golden beach, with direct access to the crystal-clear waters of the bay, Plefsis is one of Patmos’ hidden gastronomic gems. Full of authentic Greek recipes, a new menu serves up flavour-packed dishes such as Marinated Anchovies and Smoked Mackerel, Fried Zucchini Sticks, an array of freshly caught fish, local favourite Grilled Octopus and Shrimps cooked in a zesty Tomato and Feta Cheese Sauce.
