Restaurants and nightlife in Patmos

Restaurants and tavernas by the harbour have a variety of plates, so much from the local as from the international cuisine, as well as fresh fish. In the heart of the settlement, there is a little romantic ‘square’ full of coloured bougainvillea, where you can dine at Vangelis, a traditional local taverna, or you can choose Balconi on the cliff, which, beside the variety of its plates, offers a spectacular view to the harbour of Skala below. Patmos is not an island with a very intense and exciting nightlife. This is due to the Monastery of Saint John, which keeps the nightlife low. Nevertheless, a few bars and dancing bars can be found in Chora, in Skala an in the beach resort of Kambos. The most famous bars of Chora are “1673”, “Astivi” and “Ossianos”. The cosmopolitan bars “Marbela”, “Biblos” and more can be found in Skala. For a traditional night, the Aloni Restaurant, in Chora, propose live Greek music and dance performances with dancers dressed in traditional costumes.
