The villages come plenty in Tinos and so do the tavernas. And while food trends are transforming every bit of traditional there is left on the island, Svoura retains a fine balance between eclectic and tradition. A small meze spot in the middle of a beautiful white-washed square in the town of Komi is definitely one to visit on your next trip to Tinos.
This tiny yet magical spot lies in the quiet village of Komi that you will definitely go past on your way back from Kolybithra beach. As you park your car at the entrance of this small settlement and walk your way to the main square, you take note of the utter silence that lingers around the alleys at night… even on a warm and busy summer evening.
Borrowing a handful of tasty dishes from its sister venue in Koukaki, Athens, Svoura launched in 2018 and has been a great success ever since. The plates are to share and just about in the right quantity so that you can all get a bite. Underneath the leafy maple tree and the garland lights sit a few tables and a great menu with Greek-rooted dishes. For starters we got some fava spread to complement our beer and were also served their oh so delicious country-style bread. We also ordered the amazing meatballs that came with a tomato tartar sauce, some funky thick triple-fried potato wedges and a fresh Greek salad.
All were delicious indeed so much that we wanted to try their dessert – an exquisite lemon tart topped with almond flakes. What a treat! Thank you Svoura!
