THE ART OF ORIGINALITY


With years of experience and the purest love for what he does, Nicola Venetsano makes everyone at

Meltemi feel like home. Whether you are an old friend from the past visiting again to enjoy quality refined food with local wine companied by great memories, or a new guest wishing to explore something new, be assured to be served with a warm smile and unparalleled service

Nicola Venetsano a native from Donoussa, came up with the brilliant idea of offering his warm hospitality and cuisine literally from his home. The paintings on the rusty walls showcased imagery of the island surroundings painted by his wife's brother.

Prior to arriving on the island in the 80's there was no port and a fisherman's wooden boat would reach mid ways out to sea to receive tourists from the ferries. Very often due to the difficulty of unloading goods, people would have to jump from the huge rear door of the ship into the small boat. Nevertheless, for the adventurous and curious guests finally to land foot on the island to find peace and tranquility, there was also a place for them to enjoy dinner in a comfortable and naturally poetically romantic setting.
