Restaurant
“Mateo's Café & Snack Bar is located in the picturesque small port of the new town of Monemvasia, right next to the sea. It is open all day long and you can enjoy your breakfast or coffee or drink an ouzo with a variety of seafood. Mateo's specialties are seafood appetizers, among which we recommend the grilled octopus and squid and the marinated anchovies. For beer and ouzo lovers, here you may find the largest variety of these drinks not only in Monemvasia but in the wider region, with more than 30 beer labels (Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, etc.) and 15 ouzo labels (from Lesvos island, Chios island, etc).”

Historic Site
“Αξίζει οπωσδήποτε να επισκεφτείτε τον τόπο από τον οποίο άντλησε την έμπνευση του ο μεγάλος μας ποιητής Γιάννης Ρίτσος. Μία βόλτα στο βυζαντινό καλντερίμι, στην πλατεία με το παλαιό κανόνι, στα δρομάκια και στις καμάρες της καστροπολιτείας, θα σας ταξιδέψουν στην εποχή που ζούσαν οι Βυζαντινοί, οι Ενετοί και οι Φράγκοι.”

“Delicious Greek fish food with an amazing view of the rock of Monemvasia. Taste of unique traditional recipes, in Trata fish restaurant. All the ingredients are pure and made from local producers. Fresh fishes are fished from the bay of Monemvasia every day. Efficient, friendly service and a very reasonable pricing.”
