Offering a true taste of the coast, the rich yet salty taste of traditional Greek mussels should be on your wish list. Most frequently found on the northern Greek islands, these large, succulent mussels have the edge on their classic French counterparts. All thanks to the wonderful feta cheese and tomato sauce they are topped with and it’s absolutely delicious!

Squid rings can be found on taverna menus all over the Greek islands. And there is undoubtedly one superior way to enjoy it, fried. Ideal for a lazy lunch on a hot summer day, crispy squid is considered by many to be the king of all Greek dishes. Perfectly crispy on the outside and wonderfully tender on the inside.

If you’re looking for a more unusual way to sample something similar to squid, then why not try octopus? Commonly eaten in Greek homes and Greek restaurants, octopus is essential to the cuisine in this area. Whether simply grilled and served with a squeeze of lemon or braised in a rich tomato and red wind sauce, this dish epitomises everything that is wonderful about the cuisine that awaits you on a Greece sailing adventure.
