Establishment neighborhood
Mandrakia, Milos
Island newcomers will find Medusa perched above a series of syrmata—the Greek name for the brightly colored fishermen’s homes—locals are already well-acquainted with the place. The cooking is mainly the product of two older Greek women who run the kitchen, and it is good. Smoky mackerel; thick-cut, grilled swordfish steaks; local cheeses; and an especially notable chocolate cake for dessert make Medusa one of the tougher tables to score on the island. Note: Portions are on the larger side so be ready to share. The sound of the water crashing against the rocks below and the breeze sweeping in off the water mean leaving your table is hard, but at Medusa, there are always people waiting.
