Gardenia isn’t trying to imitate anything. It’s traditional Greek food and grill done well in affordable prices. The moussaka was particularly great but everything was good.

We followed Lonely Planet’s recommendation and were not disappointed. The staff are welcoming and speak excellent English and French. Service is efficient but not hurried: we ended up having a long chat with our waiter, Apostolis, who was delightful. The menu is typical taverna fare,...but executed very well; I enjoyed the local wine, too. Prices were very reasonable. A great choice for dinner in Kastraki.More

One of the best meals we’ve had in Greece so far! Our group is vegetarian and the staff were so friendly and knowledgable—we ordered a feast and everything was delicious.

We ate in this taverna on both days of our stay in Kastraki. The food was delicious, and the staff was absolutely brilliant. The taverna had also a genuine, cosy feel with traditional decor and traditional greek music. We couldn't think of a better place...to eat in the whole area.More

For a stunningly cheap price, the quality of the food is excellent. Really friendly and family orientated service, always with a genuine smile and super clean (guy even disinfected our hands for us after shaking them to say good bye). The food is quality local...and cheap, and clearly not gastronomy, so if reviewers look for that, go to Athens and pay 10x price... Conclusion: definitely good value and food, one of the best in the area.More

Their menu selections were "poli nostimo" (very delicious) and their service was prompt and friendly without being intrusive. Their retsina (Greek white wine) and home-style mousaka were best-in-class. Very enjoyable and relatively quiet atmosphere.

Avoid this restaurant by all means. I just had one of the worst experiences in my life. It happened to see the person responsible for the grill to go to the bathroom and leaving without washing his hands and minutes later it happened to observe...him to accidentally throw a burger on the floor (on a dirty carpet) and without hesitation he put it back to the grill. When we complained to him and to the manager of the place, they admitted that they don’t have to wash hands after toilet and they said that other restaurants do exactly the same when they drop some food on the floor (!). Ridiculous guys and situation. Just avoid this place!!!More

Traditional style taverna serving all the usual Greek dishes with vegetarian options..the Waiters spoke English and were very friendly.The food was tasty and reasonably priced...I went on a cold winters night so stayed indoors but looked like there was an attractive outdoor area from where...you could look at the rock formations of MeteoraMore
