Taverna Elias (+30.2246041415) in the semi-mountainous village of Emponas, on the slopes of Attaviros, the highest mountain of the island, the Konstantinakis family cooks local delicacies, honoring the concept of a pure traditional tavern. Goat kapama baked in a large clay pot sealed with dough, roasted juicy ribs, several stews and fine desserts such as baklava with properly syruped dough, fig jam and sweet walnut are just a part of the recipes Mrs. Roula, cooks with affection, like a Greek mama. They also produce excellent wines and souma exclusively for their guests with grapes from their own vineyards located at the slopes of the mountain.
