Xinara House, a beautifully restored former bishop's home in the heart of rural Tinos


There are now a hundred or more places to eat on Tinos. Below are some of our island favourites. They are all on Google maps. If you'd like to book direct they all speak some English, otherwise we can help. And coming from Athens there are many fish tavernas in Rafina Port - the first, Kavouria tou Asimaki is excellent. 

Near us in Xinara, Kastro, an all-day bar with food, opens in June.
