excellent food

We have visited twice and both times have really enjoyed the food. Both time our servers were excellent, the second time we ordered their fresh fish choices and they were well prepared. Very tasty deserts. We live nearby and will continue to frequent. Good sized portions. Only criticism is that you... read more

HORRIBLE! This place is a joke. My husband and I went for dinner. It was on the main road where it should be busy. It was empty, not a single table sat. We walked in and it says egg style all over. We were confused at first but the server finally appeared and said I'm sorry I'm here. She was... More

Don't go to this restaurant. These people should not even be in business, especially the restaurant business. We've been to hundreds of restaurants and this was the absolute worst by every measure you could make of a restaurant. The building was not even finished, the floor was unfinished and sticky as if they did not intend to install any floor... More

This place looks like an IHOP and says egg style all over. It's priced like fine dining but the server wears a stained tshirt & jeans. The salad is $10 for lettuce, a few olives and a small amount if feta. It has vinegar on it. The chicken souvlaki is $20 it's nothing more than grilled chicken on a stick.... More

We had a Groupon for Taverna Skara and we stopped to eat after we had been in South Tampa. When we got there we were told they didn't open until 5 PM (it was 3 PM on a Sunday). The hostess said she would ask the chef if we could be served and he was gracious enough to serve us.... More

I dined at Skara in Safety Harbor as a solo diner based on a Groupon I purchased. The restaurant had been open 3 months when I visited. There was one waiter with no back up to help him: he had to take orders, make drinks, serve, and clear tables. Meanwhile, one of the owners was sitting outside drinking wine. I... More

This place has the best food, the nicest server. Better than 3 of the restaurants in the sponge docks area combined!! The chef also was very careful when it came to my food allergies. I will recommend this place and will definitely be back!!

We decided to try this new restaurant because it is much closer to home than Tarpon Springs. We found the food to be much more expensive and not as creative. The service was adequate but nothing spectacular. My wife ordered the lamb shank (on the bone) which came with a pleasant sauce and lots of baby onions - but no... More

My friend gave us a groupon for this place in our wedding card so we went for lunch today. We were the only people there, surely due to the fact that they opened 4 months ago and the restaurant is located in a strip mall that isn't visable from the main road....Very nicely decorated and authentic. The food was all... More

The food is good but the service has not been consistent. I've been there twice and the service sporadic. I ordered a bottle of wine that was on the wine list and was told they were out and to order another bottle. I said that's ok I was wanting that specific wine and I would just have water. They seemed... More
