Location for the best Greek restaurant, the best bar, and the best mini market in the Ionian, according to one of the pilot books for the area. Frikes is also a very picturesque place, with the green hills behind watered by the stream that runs through the village.
Like most of Ithaca, there are few tourists, other than those arriving by yacht. The harbour is popular with Flotillas so if you’re on a bareboat charter, you might want to have a plan B in mind should you arrive and find it’s busy.
There are several restaurants along the sea front, mini markets, and showers, but no bank, ATM or post office. A ferry service runs to the islands of Kefalonia and Lefkas if you need to change crew.
