Lord Byron Restaurant, Ios Chora, Greece


On the corner of a small and shady square in the warren-like old town, Lord Byron is far more charismatic and quirky than most of the other bars and restaurants on Ios. The maître d' enjoys a bit of banter and isn't afraid to guide you away from dishes she thinks you won't like. The menu highlights include enormous and well-seasoned steaks with unusual condiments at reasonable prices. While the atmospheric interior has the air of a treasure trove, the outside tables offer some good people and cat watching opportunities. 7/10
