Various guides to Patmos describe Grikos as a traditional fishing village: we beg to differ. It is undoubtedly a pretty location, set around an almost perfectly circular bay. The water is just as clear as the other lovely beaches in Patmos. However, the village feels rather... manufactured. It doesn't have a traditional fishing village heart and seems to be purpose-built for the delights of tourists.
All this is rather a shame, as Patmos is such a traditional and authentically Greek island. Maybe we are just over-sensitive!
Having said all that, the freshly caught fish at Stamatis restaurant was FANTASTIC! One of our favourite meals all week! We were taken into the spotless kitchen to choose our fish, which was simply grilled, with lemon. Add some Greek salad and fresh bread (and a cold beer) and we felt as though we had feasted like kings.
