Serifos island has a lot of local specialties: sun-dried tomatoes, Fava (yellow bean puree often served at festivals), Marathotiganites (friend fennel-balls), Revithada (chickpea stew with rosemary) and Skepastaria.
A must try is local fish such as mullet, swordfish, monkfish, squid.
The island also produces local wine which has a distinctive flavor and color. Or try Souma, which is a kind of Raki.
Not only cooked dishes are famos on Serifos, but also the pure products as honey, almonds, all home-grown vegetables, freshly baked bread, sausages, Xinomizithra and Mizithra cheese (sour skim-milk cheese and skim-milk cheese), Loutza (sun-baked ham) and Kaltsounia cheese pies.
Don’t miss out on Pasteli made of honey and sesame and traditional Amygdalota (alomond macaroons). And of course the well-known Greek spoon sweets called “Glyko tou koutalou”. The honey-based desserts are part of the local cuisine.
You will find many traditional restaurants and taverns around the islands serving home made food with local products.
Most of them are in Livadi, Livadakia and Chora and at some beaches such as Ganema, Megalo Livadi, Platis Gialos, Psilli Ammos, Sikamia, near Vagia and so on.
