If you are looking for the islanders, check the cafés and restaurants, particularly in Fourni. Here are some of them.
A lot of taverns, Kafeniens and cafés are located along the promenade and the Agora, Fourni's "shopping mile", where two excellent restaurants have established themselves.
The Fourni cuisine in the taverns is authentic, fish and seafood is the first choice on menus. But do also try dishes out of the oven. Your sweet tooth will be touched by specialities in the Kafenions, for example "Eck-Mäck" - that means "bread" in Turkish, more or less the exact opposite of pumpernickel.
Nikos is a traditional tavern where for a 100 years the islanders have been celebrating their weddings and baptisms. The inner room is huge and a perfect place to spend a lot of your time in during foul weather. During summer the tavern-life takes place on the shady and spacious terrace. Jenny, Nikos warm hearted wife brought her home Peleponnese cuisine to this island, which means delicately spiced food. Location:

"Fresh out of the net" could be the motto of this tavern. Miltiadis - nickname Miltos - is both: fisherman and owner of this tavern - or vice versa, better ask him yourself. His domain is the grill or his boat, while his wife Dina and his son Dimitis look after the kitchen and service, the guests appreciate Mitlos' quick wit.

Cafe Bar Platia
The Kafenion sits at the shady entrance to the village square. A place to relax and to have a piece of fresh baked cake made by Mrs. Markakis.
Café Bar Sklavos
Don't look for a place to sit on Jannis Sklavos terrace when there is a football or basketball match on TV. The device dominates the café, which makes Jannis' place a good location to start learning Greek. His port-side terrace is a wonderful place for a sunset.

Sto Stéki tou Skevos
Skevos bar is the gathering point for youngsters including those who still believe in their own youth. You can celebrate with Greek music until the cows come home - which never happens on Fourni ...
