Our first visit since Khione reopened during the Coronavirus, we found it as welcoming as ever, though with fewer tables for sure. We shared a taramosalata, as usual, to start. My middle course of feta with pistachios was fabulous, and my companion was equally pleased...with her dish. We followed those up with venison and figs on my part, stuffed cabbage on my companion’s; hers in particular was out of this world. My only regret is that for the present they have discontinued their offerings of spirits. We did find a nice wine, however.More

We’re always so pleased when we return to Khione. A simple setting, for sure, but when you arrive you are surrounded by warm and such good food! Last night it was pickled smelt and fennel fritters as starters, followed sauted scallops for us. Our companions...went for a filo pie and skate wing. Couldn’t have been better. Wine choices are always good there. Greek wines remain a bit of a mystery to us, but there is excellent advice to guide you. And a little sip of metaxa ends the meal nicely. Service, as usual, was knowledgeable and excellent.More

This Taverna is SO authentic Greek! The moussaka, with the touch of cinnamon, was like being back in Greece. The starters with fresh, home baked bread, are a treat for the pallet. Loved the goat with chick peas in a savory broth. We were impressed...with the selection of Greek wines, too! Everything is just a just perfect for a long, lingering dining experience! Wish we were local, so we could dine here often!More

We stopped in for an early dinner on a Saturday evening. We started with Tzatziki and grilled octopus and enjoyed a quick lesson in Greek wine from the hostess. We dined on the specials posted on their wall. The braised rabbit with sour cherries and...the grilled pork chop with hen of the woods mushrooms and coriander potatoes were both wonderfully prepared and very tasty. We enjoyed our meal leisurely and ended the night with A lovely Rose’ and baklava. We will be back.More

All the food here is home made and high quality. Based in a recent visit, recommend the octopus appetizer, the moussaka and swordfish entrees, the baclava and the Greek coffee ice cream. Extensive list of Greek wines. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of...cuisine. Pleasant service. Easy parking in Mill Street or in nearby lot.More

We have loved this place and the predecessor to it as well. Mark is talented and his food consistently combines local meats, seafood and produce with a Greek and Mediterranean flare. We love to order a few or each course and share. You may have...to explore beyond your comfort zone, but you taste buds will thank you! This mother and son do it thoughtfully and lovingly.More

We picked Khione largely because we've visited Greece many times and needed a "fix" of authentic cuisine. We were not let down, starting with the best Greek wine menu we've ever seen, broken down by Greece's many excellent wine regions. We chose a marvelous white...wine from Serres (northern Greece's Macedonia region), authentic and savory taramosalata, followed by the whole sea bass and katsikaki (wonderful goat dish). Desserts did not disappoint, service was attentive starting with asking how much time we had (a musical at the Maine State Music Theater followed), and then just the right amount of checking on how we were doing. Nice decor, lots of parking. We are already planning a return and longer stay to try more starters and salads.More

Hatopodi Scharas best part of entire meal. The octopus was perfectly tender and mild. Hortopila serving was sufficient to serve two. One serving of Katsikaki Kleftiko in parchment was also very generous. if you like Greek food you will enjoying eating here, Waitress in training...is a quick study and will be at the top of her game in a week or two.More

Food was decent but the service was very slow for only having 3 tables occupied. It seems like a family-run restaurant that doesn't know the typical process for keeping things moving. The server was a bit smug but the food was a nice change.

We responded to an ad and online reviews, and were not disappointed in this small riverside restaurant with side of building parking on the one-way route 1 service road in Brunswick, Menu and chalk board are fine; ouzo and retsina available; service is friendly if...a bit uner-informed about menu ingredients. No problem: the food is very good. Expect to pay $100 for two with alcohol and tip. We enjoyed a very well prepared octopus; meat ball and lamb sausage appetizer specials; lamb shank. Even bread was good, and our retsina by the glass was smooth going down. We will be back now that we can find the place.More
