Top tables: Captain Pipinos taverna, Greece

Turkish architect and man-about-town, Emir Eras, loves to while away the day at this understated seafood restaurant set on an unspoilt Greek island

If I could click my fingers and be there right now? Captain Pipinos on Antiparos. It’s an old-school Greek taverna on the south coast of the island. There’s no airport on Antiparos, so it’s always quiet and the water is incredible – the colour of it. The beaches are gorgeous. I like to rent a house right by the water, but Paros is very close: 15 minutes by boat so you can just pop for a day trip. The food at Pipinos is very good. Try the grilled sardines. They’re so fresh, just plucked straight from the water, grilled and drizzled with olive oil.
