Ano Meria 840 11, Folegandros
People come to this eight-table hole-in-the-wall for the matsata—homemade ribbons of tagliatelle tossed with a rich ragu of slow-cooked rabbit or goat. But be sure to order one of the incredible cheese pies for the table, too. This tiny little place, on a slender road on the way to the Panagia church, is also a great roadside stop for a glass of ouzo. Image courtesy of the Cyclades Chamber of Commerce.
Agios Nikolaos, Folegandros
It’s not the best restaurant on Folegandros, but the views are unmatched (go for one of the fish carpaccios and you’ll be set). It’s perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking Agios Nikolaos bay, where the Aegean seems to stretch on forever. If you’re without a car, the owner will take you in his boat from the island’s port, which is close to most accommodations. And yes, the whole evening is as charming as it sounds.
