New Port Royal Restaurant Offers Pleasant Dining Experience

Travelers along Route 301 have a new, pleasant dining experience available to them now that Leo Dimosthenous and his family have opened Anthi's Family Restaurant just south of the Rappahannock River Bridge in Port Royal.

"We want to provide our customers with a good experience," said Leo. "We want them to be happy with the food, the service and the price."

Happy is a word often used to describe Leo these days. He immigrated from Cyprus along with his mother, Anthi, and his father, Tony, and had been living with relatives in Spotsylvania until just a few months ago.
The Dimosthenous family operated a restaurant in Cyprus for more than 10 years until the economic climate there forced them to look for a new location. They picked Virginia because they had other family here and are delighted to have settled in the Rappahannock River community of Port Royal.

The new restaurant is located at 304 Main Street in a historic old building that once housed Lynn’s Inn on the west side of Route 301. Leo and his parents live above the restaurant and are constantly working to build upon the colorful, cheerful atmosphere that greets customers.

The restaurant's menu includes many mouthwatering favorites of Greek and Cypriot origins that are sure to please travelers and local residents. There are Greek salads, Greek-style beef stew, chicken souvlaki and baklava, as well as plenty of American dishes, including hamburgers and meatloaf.

Anthi's Family Restaurant serves daily specials including stuffed peppers, roasted pork loin and roasted chicken. The restaurant's menu also includes baked spaghetti and homemade lasagna, as well as chicken and veal Parmesan.

Also on the menu are meatball and cheese subs, Paninis, BLTs, fried shrimp, baked flounder and spaghetti and marina sauce, as well as gyros, home-made cheesecake and tiramisu to satisfy every appetite.

"Customers don't know us yet," said Leo. "In a few months or weeks, they will know us better, come in frequently and enjoy our food and service."

Leo's 22-year-old sister and 20-year-old brother, who are studying in Cyprus, are scheduled to join the family in Port Royal this summer. "We will put them to work for sure," Leo said.
