Because the lagoon is a protected natural resort, fish is only allowed in the traditional way. This produces the best fish of Greece. People from Athens come for the weekend to Messolonghi to taste this delicacy. Every type of fish has a particular recipe. No visitor should leave without tasting the traditional Avgotaracho Messolonghiou.
In the surrounding area of Messolonghi, food is produced in an organic manner. In the restaurants and ouzo tavernas this healthy food can be tasted, accompanied by a good bottle of wine straight from the local mountain winneries.
Once you have here been eating and drinking, you know why the ancient Greeks had so many Gods; everybody wants to live like a God in Greece.
