Summerish Aegean sea breeze blows creativity into our cuisine. Our tradition-driven avidity seeks for authenticity in taste and recipes. Quality local materials and Tinian hospitality meet against the minimalist Cycladic backdrop in a place of sheer culinary delight: “Marathia Restaurant”. Influenced by traditional cuisine, Marathia experiments using local, family recipes, keeping the very nature and flavors of the Cyclades in general, and especially the Tinian cuisine unaltered. Elaborate dishes and unexpected flavors stimulate the taste memory.
The Tinian culinary traditions welcome the creative culinary ideas of Stephen, Yiota and Effie, each creating unique dishes, which take you on a tasty “journey” through the summer Cyclades. With gastronomic routes guiding you through the flavors of Tinos, the creative cuisine of Marathiá offers its own authentic dimension to fish dishes. It is a genuine sort of “comfort sea food”, and one of the tastiest types of Tinian cuisine. Fresh fish, such as scorpion fish with mint, lobster-pasta, and white grouper with rosemary cooked with white wine prepared in clay pot, creamy fish chowder, and baked grouper-fish with okra, are some of the dishes that make up the local culinary idiom of Marathia, at Agios Fokas in Tinos.
We seek only the freshest fish and seafood from the Aegean Sea, and from the land of Tinos. Only the best seasonal products are offered generously at every meal. This is why the menu at Marathia adjusts depending on the season and the availability of ingredients. Traditional flavors of the island and creative gastronomic ideas compose a rich bouquet of dishes made with simple, unique ingredients, that when combined result in a variety of tastes fascinating to the the palate which seduce the senses.
The key to our success is the use of the freshest, highest quality ingredients, and in local products, hand-picked by Marinos, carefully selects fish and seafood straight from the Tinian boats’ catch (from Chora, Ysternia and Panormos).
Fish is selected daily from the trolling boats of Lili, and the islands experienced spear fishers. Fresh fish and seafood from the Tinian boats include: bream, mullet and kolochtypes from Chalkidaio, styria and sea bream from Flitzani, black sea bream and grouper from Varypatades, dolphin fish (Sargos), breams and lobsters from Galanaki, Michael and Panormitis.
Agricultural products arrive daily, freshly cut from the islands villages. Local meat products, and organic extra virgin olive oil from Messinia characterize our dishes, and give them their distinct deep flavor. A comprehensive wine list with carefully selected labels from Greek vineyards, emphasizing on Cycladic and Tinian varieties harmoniously accompany our dishes.
Tinos offering sun, sea, and inspiring passion, welcomes visitors. Located on the island's largest beach, Agios Fokas, which is justly considered one of the most beautiful, boasting breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea, Marathia invites you to relax and enjoy Cycladic cuisine and authentic Tinian hospitality.
Our love for both culinary creations, and the island of Tinos led us to “safeguard” the Cycladic gastronomic treasures, through our own recipes, taste, knowledge and inspiration!
