We had decided to try a restaurant outside of our hotel in Sparta, judging from the restaurant's popularity at lunch we thought about having dinner there. When we arrived at 8pm (normal Greek dinner time) it was empty except from the owner and there didn't appear to be kitchen staff. I ordered a Pastitso which was really salty and appeared... More

Inexpensive and excellent tavern, wheter for meat or vegetables. Staff is nice and speaks a wonderful english (which in Sparta is not as common as in the rest of Greece)

Don't get we wrong, I love Greek food but after a while it all gets a bit "samey". You can only eat so much Greek Salad and Klefitiko.....so it was a real pleasutre to find this place. It's on the main street on the left about 200 metres from the statue of Leonidas of the 300 fame. The have several... More
