Table is reputed to be one of the finest of its kind
in all Greece - don’t just take our word for it
- see what ‘The Lonely Planet’, ‘The
Rough Guide’, and the famous American ‘Frommers’
and numerous other international guide books have to
say. See too, the official website
for Lesvos (search on ‘The Captain's Table’).
restaurant is owned and run by Melinda and her husband
Theo. Melinda, Australian by birth but raised in
Greece, prepares food with her husband in the morning,
and then along with a great team of charming helpers,
looks after the clientele in the evening, while
Theo heads up the competent kitchen crew.

The Captain’s Platter
in the picturesque harbour of Molyvos (see map),
this restaurant offers a wide range of excellent
fresh fish dishes; we emphasize FRESH fish dishes
as Melinda’s father (The Captain) is a fisherman
and runs a 25 metre trawler and a caique. Other
local fishermen (best mates of the Captain) bring
their daily catches to Theo who is always on hand
to choose the finest fish available. For the specialist,
who likes to sample a little of everything try the
Captain’s Platter (for one or two persons).
and Theo also offer other fare. Greek and international
dishes for those with varied taste and their evening
‘specials’ could feature Thai cuisine,
satays, curries, Italian gnocchi etc. Favourite
main meals are Theo’s roast lamb with oregano,
garlic and lemon, special marinated grilled chicken
or pork fillets wrapped in bacon.
restaurant tables are al fresco and the diners
can enjoy being close to ‘where it all happens’
or sit right on the quayside, a metre from many
small colourful fishing boats bobbing up and down
in the water. And, no matter how hot the day,
in the evening we always enjoy a cool sea breeze.
