They came with a choice of potatoes and one of the best salads we had ever tasted. Jimmy and Maria both came over to check on us and... More

When I travel I always find it difficult to find places which are authentic and offer local food at great prices. But that's exactly what Jimmy's taverna is all about. The food was delicious and the owners made you feel at "home" right from the beginning.

We had a traditional meze unlike any we have had in Greece with everything freshly, home cooked. In a village setting, with mama, papa and yaya cooking and making sure we were well looked after, I can't wait to go back.

We were recommended to visit this taverna in the village of Malona, it was in our opinion the best place you could eat on the island, Jimmy and Maria are such friendly people and have the benefit of being farmers so the produce that they serve is of the highest quality ( no soggy tomatoes and limp lettuce here!)
