It has been some time since I was on the forum. Who is new in the resort and who has fallen foul of the Greek financial problems. Cry Cry Cry

I think Zorbas is the only place to have closed down. When we were there in June there were workmen doing alterations. We were told it's going to be another supermarket.

Yes it's good to see see you back on here Colin. I can't directly answer your question because the last time I was there I met up with you. I will be back next Month staying at Stevens again.

Have never been to the resort before, but had a last minute chance to have 4 nights there recently, along with a week in Roda. Have to say it was busy, very friendly and unbelievably beautiful. Four nights was not enough.
So I cant advise what has closed, but most of the restaurants on the beach and main strip were busy lunchtimes and evenings, and the bars in the main street (Madisons, Robins Nest and Lemon Tree etc) were busy later on at night. There didnt seem to be many empty (unoccupied) bars or shops on the main street or beach.
We had a wander up to Stevens on the Hill as we had heard so much about it, and although we found it to be in a beautiful setting, we had a drink there and there were only two couples at the bar and one couple eating Unhappy
I definitely need to spend longer in the resort next year  Heart

Glad you had a great time in the village, you have now scrathed the surface and got the AG bug!! Have a perfect place for you stay next year, you will love it, the owners are the kindest people I have ever met and it has the best pool in the village.

Just off the main street, go past Sebastians Taverna and just before the small supermarket there is a little lane, it's 20 yards up there on the right hand side. They have 2 studios, one overlooks a garden and our favourite is the one that overlooks the pool, nice veranda with peach and lemon trees. Also have a 5 bed apartment, stayed in them all. Dimitri will pick you up at the airport and take you back. Lost count of the number of meals Katerina has cooked for us, never asked for a penny. Went to their Daughters wedding a few years ago.

First time user of forum, Zorbas closed last year at the end of season. Andreas the owner has reopened his dads bar in Pelakas this year. Dont know if anyone took up the tenancy of this restaurant. We were in AG last year [2011] May to June for two weeks. Found lots of changes in the village. different people were staying, they were not using the bars and restaurants the same as the Brits do, many of the locals complained there takings and bookings were already down on the same time the year before. Lots of the restaurants were not opening untill 6 00 pm, unlike the first time we were there  12 years ago if you were not in the restaurant of your choice by 7 30 pm you had to line up outside and wait. We went again in October 7th [2011] for one week and some of the village was closed, starting to get AG with drawl symptoms as this is the first time we have not been to AG in 12 years. We are of to Kos for a week 13/10/2012 booked our own holiday on net so I cannot change it.
