A guide to the best restaurants in Afitos

With its village atmosphere and generally slower pace of life, Afitos‘ restaurants are understandably rather traditional and encourage you to take your time over meals or just a coffee. Although small, Afitos actually has an enviable array of eating establishments for you to enjoy on your holidays in Halkidiki, from traditional Greek tavernas to restaurants serving pizzas and other Mediterranean food. Many of its restaurants benefit from the magnificent views over Toroneos Bay that give Afitos its nickname as ‘the balcony of Halkidiki’.

Elegant eating at Sousourada restaurant

You’re in store for a treat when eating at Sousourada on your Halkdiki holidays. The food reflects many Mediterranean influences as well as more traditional Greek dishes. As an added bonus, this family-run restaurant, close to Afitos’ main street, has an extensive wine list of over 100 labels.

Designer delicacies at Tuna – the Fish Concept

With elaborate presentation and extraordinary attention to detail, food is elevated to an art form at Tuna, which, true to its name, does an amazing line in fish. Situated on the veranda of the Rigas Hotel overlooking the sea, you’ll certainly enjoy the quality of both the seafood dishes and the wine at this stunning restaurant.
