Where to try lamb on Thassos?
Besides olives and excelent olive oil, Thassos is well known for it exquisite lamb. Sheeps and lambs are the majority on domestic farms, and that's why lamb and lamb meat offered on the menu in numerous restaurant, are usually from Thassos.
Traditionally, the best lamb can be tasted in villages like Theologos, Panagia and Kazaviti.
In Theologos, the most popular restaurant is Kleoniki (Iatrou), in Panagia, on the small square, near the fountain and big platanus tree, there are two big restaurants and both offer well prepared lamb on a spit, while in Kazaviti you can taste lamb under the bell.
Besides lamb on a spit, we recommend you to try the lamb chops. Lamb chops are available in most of the restaurant on the island, the main thing for them is to be fresh and not frozen. We liked the most the ones we tried in San Antonio restaurant, on the same beach, near Potos.
One of the rare restaurants that offers lamb, and other meat on charcoal and not on an electric spit is George Restaurant, on the main street in Potos. The restaurant offers this kind of service only in the evening.
