The Captain’s Table is open.

The Captain's TableAfter an explosion and fire destroyed the Captain’s Table in Molyvos harbour on Tuesday 13 May, nobody believed that the restaurant could possibly re-open this summer. Nobody except Melinda, Theo and the family that is.

Today is Thursday 6 August and all the hard work has paid off.

The Captain’s Table is open!

New growthWhen you consider that what was left of the old building had to be knocked down before
the rebuild could start, you realise just how much hard work has gone into today’s opening.

The building is new, the kitchen is new, the tables and chairs were rescued from the debris of the explosion. Even the badly burnt tree next to the restaurant is making an effort and today has new green shoots to help celebrate the re-opening.

A new chapter begins for the Captains Table, let us hope that the final lines are

“and they all lived happily ever after.”

About Robin

We started visiting Lesvos such a long time ago we can't remember when. We simply fell in love with the island in general and Molyvos in particular. In 2005 we bought some land and tried to manage the building of our house from the UK. Holidays became site visits and our house was [mostly] completed in 2007. In 2009 we sold up in the UK and moved to Molyvos. This is now our home and we count ourselves amongst the luckiest of the lucky. I am a member of the Molyvos Tourist Association, providing photographs for their brochures and general publicity. Most of my time is spent on activities to encourage tourism or taking photographs of one of the most beautiful places on earth. I also produce calendars and sell them on-line through Lesvos Calendars. Please visit and have a look. You can also see more of my photographs on my  Robin Sanders Photography website.
