Maybe because it was in winter, we could not find any attractive eating place along the road of Mani. We guessed that there should be tavernas in port town and that was why we stopped at Gerolimenas.
Gerolimenas is a small port town on the west coast of Mani. My guidebook says that it used to be a very important commercial port of Mani, but I don't think there aren't any bigger ship than fisherman's boats now.
However, we found several tavernas all open for business. We entered the one that looked least touristic. It was called Katagounas (Ο Καταγκούνας).
As we expected, they did not have written menu. The owner/waiter just dictated what they had. Strangely, they did not have any fish, although it was just in front of the sea. But, it was all right for us.
Hubby being rather sick, we ordered only a few plates.
These are Tzatziki and Singlino.
And horta. Different from the one we had at Trata in Monenvasia, it tasted fresh and flavorful.
