In the past month I have eaten three simple but excellent meals at Tavernaki. This cafe's neighbours provide hearty but often dull fare so I was delighted with the delicious food at Tavernaki. It is one of just a few places of this standard in Palolem. The staff are welcoming and attentive but not intrusive.

Hard to miss with its white curtains facing the blue sea... Honestly I didnt think I would find genuine greek food on a beach in India but I was proved wrong. Owned by a greek lady who also has a bigger greek restaurant in another town. The service is good and the people warm hearted. Varmly recommended! 12.12.12 Robert
