Natural stoned paths, white curtains hanging from the walls and stylish lights are the main decoration elements. The restaurant serves gourmet Greek-based dishes. There is also a bar next to the restaurant if you wish to have a drink or summer cocktail.

Vitsa is one of the Zagori Villages Complex in the Northwest, and the best place to go if you like mushrooms. Kanela & Garifalo (meaning Cinnamon & Clove) is a gourmet restaurant with a panoramic view, that its dishes are based on locally grown wild mushrooms. The owner and the chef of the restaurant is a mushroom “scientist”. He uses quality ingredients to prepare his divine dishes and all of them are a taste heaven.

Traditional Greek cafes, mainly found in the small villages of Greece’ s mainland, are a meeting place for local people. You rarely see women in these cafes though, unless they are visitors.    Men meet up, drink their coffees or ouzo and tsipouro, eat mezes, play cards games, talk and argue about politics and football while smoking and laughing.
