Gastronomy

The gastronomic wealth of Patmos is boundless, comprising a large variety of local products, recipes and dishes, which gift visitors with yet another unique experience.

Local vegetables, fruit, the celebrated local Patmos tyrópita (an open-top cheese pie with a filling of mixed local cheeses), stuffed kalamária (squid), anthónero (rose water), fragrant bread and the famous sweet poungí (literally: pouch or purse, in this case made of pastry) with honey or icing sugar, are but just a few of the flavoursome delights that Patmos has to offer.
In the numerous small tavernas and restaurants of Patmos Island, visitors have the opportunity to taste both homemade traditional recipes and fresh fish or handmade sweets, while some of these delectable treasures can also be purchased from the island’s zacharoplastía (patisseries).

Recently, businessmen of Patmos, proving the great importance that they give to the local gastronomy, proceeded to the presentation of the “Greek Breakfast of Patmos” in cooperation with the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels. Furthermore, for eight years is organized on the island the “Aegean Festival of Taste and Tradition”, which is yet another institution that enhances and highlights the patmian gastronomy.
