Marmita opened in 2013 on the island of Skiathos, serving real Greek food in an idyllic setting. We specialize in contemporary Greek cuisine and rely on the use of fresh local ingredients combined with innovative takes on traditional recipes to create a delicious menu full of flavor. Our aim is to take you on a journey through the authentic flavors of Greek cuisine. The unique setting provides the atmosphere as the food takes center stage and other factors, including the music, the lighting, and the flowers, combine to create comfort, intimacy and even romance. Real authentic cooking is what we believe makes the difference. We provide good, honest food. Fresh ingredients, in season and grown locally or in the region, and healthy recipes are crucial to the way we understand cooking and run our kitchen. Everything we do is created and presented in an elegant way. Our menu has a unique and appealing identity. Our menu allows the dishes to speak for themselves: they are simple, tasty, light and healthy

Marmita’s wine list is based mainly on Greek producers and indigenous varieties. With more than 70 wines from all over Greece, we try to offer some of the best Greek wines from different regions, appellations, terroirs and winemaking traditions. The wine list also includes organic and vegan options. 

The recipes below are for two dishes that the restaurant makes with local seasonal ingredients.


Kritama
(Rock Samphire) salad 

  • Ingredients 
  • Rock samphire – 150 g
  • Marinated onions – 20 g
  • Tomato cherries – 30 g
  • Aged Anthotyro cheese – 30 g
  • Olive oil – 25 ml 
  • Vinegar – 5 ml
  • Pinch of salt and pepper 
  • Pinch of oregano 

Preparation:

To marinate the onions, slice them and put in a bowl with red wine vinegar. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 24 hours.  Blanch the kritama, or samphire, for two minutes in boiling water. After straining off the water, put the samphire in a bowl with some ice to preserve its intense green color. Cut the tomato cherries in half and slice the cheese thinly. Mix in all the ingredients, including the marinated onions, and serve in a salad bowl.

Wine pairing:
