Welcome to the cafe – restaurant “Ithome”

Built at the foot of Mount Ithome, across from the historical whirlpools of the Klepsydras Fountain and overlooking the enchanting archaeological site of Ancient Messinia, it is a lively place full of stories of locals and travelers. The old stone surfaces of its walls, its paved courtyards and old utensils in its interior give it a special touch and picturesqueness.

Its history begins in the late 1800s when it was first built to its own home. After a few decades it functioned as a grocery store, then turned into a school and during the occupation it housed a small restaurant.

1981 was an uninhabited building when Panagiotis Kountouris bought it from John and Athanasia Kouvelaki. It started operating as a restaurant since 1987. Its tasteful journey continues unabated until today by the Kountouri family and expresses over time the tradition and quality of its traditional food and products.

Our family restaurant for 28 years is in full operation throughout the year, it promotes Messinian hospitality and provides friendly service, homemade Greek cuisine and local traditional dishes.
