“Warm welcome with good home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

The Taverna is a welcome addition to Wells' restaurants. The formerly tired Sun Inn has been transformed into a fresh but warm dining space which is far more inviting than one might imagine when thinking of an old pub. Service was friendly and efficient even though the restaurant was almost full. The food was well-cooked and very reasonably priced - nothing pretentious but good hearty cooking with plenty of flavour. A welcome taste of the Med on a cold December evening.

“Great Food Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We ate here and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and authentic Greek food, great!

The menu is typically Greek and there are specials too. As you arrive a dish of olives and bread olive oil and balsamic were presented as we perused the menu. This building has been refurbished and provides a lovely ambience. The owners are really friendly and the service was exemplary. The house wine was good and reasonably priced. As locals we will be dining there again soon. If you just want a drink and a bowl of olives, do pop in.

“Great staff, great atmosphere - just a word or two of advice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Visited this newish Greek Taverna on Friday. Very busy which is great to see! The welcome and service could not have been better. Well done. The fresh decor was great but could have benefitted from lighting the few tea lights that were around to add to the atmosphere! Having read the reviews and having lived in the Med for many years we were looking forward to the food but we were a tiny bit disappointed I'm afraid. The food was very edible but not outstanding, which was a shame because with a few tweeks it could be very good. The menu was a bit limited and frankly too anglicised eg greek sausage and chips, chicken in honey and roast potatoes! The portions were on the mean side - if you are going to serve so little on the mezze (two olives two tiny calamaris!) put it on a smaller plate! Don't compromise on quality, pay a little more, charge a little more and retain customers. We are hospitality professionals so do have high standards and know how hard it is to make a profit, that each dish must be costed to the penny but don't scrimp eg offering cream with the dessert would make a difference. This is a new venture and they are trying really hard so please give them a chance. They are such lovely people they deserve all the help and encouragement we can give them. We will be visiting again!
