Beautiful views and Fried Zucchini Flowers for Lunch at Venizelos Taverna in Petri, Lesvos

Petri is the little mountain village of Petra (Lesvos Island in the Greek archipelago). Here you will find beautiful views of the town Petra. It’s just less than 10 minutes uphill climb with the scooter from Petra.

So Dutchman and I decided to catch the lovely views and spend an afternoon of lazy lunching in this tiny mountain village. Here, we discovered the traditional Greek tavern—Venizelos.

The Views!


This is the mountain village, Petri, about 10 minutes or less from Petra.

At Venizelos Taverna we ordered the following:

Greek salad for Dutchman and I as starters, meat kebab for the Dutchman (did not take a picture) and fried zucchini flowers stuffed with Greek cheese for moi which I also shared with the Dutchman. The restaurant owner gave us free cassava cake for our dessert. Efcharisto!

The food here was very good: 4.2 stars out of 5 in my book. We loved our time spent here, with the delicious food and the beautiful breath taking views to Petra and the coast, this restaurant is indeed a gem, a great place in Petri to spend a long hot afternoon.

We are truly glad to have paid a visit at Venizelos and Petri. So here are the pictures of the lunch and the lovely views!


This is the view to Petra.

Our Greek Lunch


In Greece, you will always get free bread in restaurants.


Fresh Greek salad. They are always great to eat for lunch when its so hot outside.


Fried zucchini flowers stuffed with Greek cheese. This was good but perhaps they should not have stuffed to much cheese in it.


Small chunks of cassava cake for dessert.

I did explore this little Petri mountain village and pictures will be on my next post.
