Molyvos Firing on All Cylinders

Dave Feldman | Jul 18, 2004 12:17 AM

I eat at Molyvos every few years. Last night, I had the best meal I've ever had there. As usual, my strategy there was to order the fish special, and the roasted wild bass was sensational. The Cretan bread salad, pleasingly light and full of perfectly cooked calamari, was better than in the past. Friends had 5 appetizers, and all were pleased. An apple walnut crisp was excellent (really, the only thing I tried that was less than excellent was a competent but unsensational rice pudding).

Prices have crept up, although it isn't near Milos levels. I much prefer eating at Molyvos -- they were patient with our large group, that included a sleeping and utterly quiet child, some folks who ate prodigious meals, and others who ordered only one dish.

The place was only half full on a Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. -- our party of six was able to walk right in.
