Description: Traditional Greek tavern
Reviewed July 11, 2013

After I read the reviews on Tripadvisor I arrived in Lefkes curious to taste the food from Klarinos.
The Tavern has a good location, in the central square but without special view from the terrace.
The tavern was almost empty and the waiter was not so much in the mood for serving, even if it was an evening hour when it's normal to eat dinner in Greece.
We ordered pork and lamb. The food came on small plates ( plates full of food to leave the impression of big portion...a main course is wrong served on appetizer plate...). The food was not bad but without taste and nothing special at all. The pork was normal meat, without spices, roasted and cut in pieces with some ordinary french fries. The lamb was in "lemon sauce" but we didn't find the lemon flavor...portion came on the same kind of plate with the same ordinary french fries.
The waiter recomended us local rose wine - typical homemade wine with sour taste and smell, not good at all, don't take! We ordered tap water as it's ussualy served in greek taverns but the waiter was not happy about bringing something without paying.
The service is bad! If you order just main and drinks the bill will be to cheap for them ( 20 euro in our case ) so they will not take care of you at all. If you want to order a lot and spend minimum 30 euro/person that the situation changes and the smile appears on waiter's face. The prices are normal for this kind of food but the quality is not special.
So, it's nothing special about this tavern speaking about food. If you want to feel a friendly atmosphere you must eat to get fat so the bill will make waiters entertain you!

Klarinos tavern is a place not to be missed when in Paros. During our 7 day summer holiday in August 2012 we visited the tavern twice. The tavern is specialised in various grilled food, absolutely delicious. The lamb chops on the charcoal, among other delicacies, was our favourite. It takes only 20 minutes drive from Parikia to reach Lefkes, a beautiful village on the top of a hill in the centre of the island of Paros.The tavern is easilly accessible at the main square of Lefkes, You go up a number of steps and you come to the main restaurant area, a spacious veranda with a lovely view. It is worth going to the village half an hour or more before going for dinner as it is pleasant to stroll in the narrow streets with the little cute shops of this picturesque village.

This restaurant offers some local dishes very well cooked. Some of which are rare to find and worth trying, such as the delicious traditionally cooked snails. The meat dishes are very good as well. The place is popular with families so one should expect it to be kind of noisy and crowded and the service might not be up to the highest standards but all that should be a part of the experience. The seating is outdoors and the view of the village is nice. I would recommend it to the visitors of the village if they wish to try local cuisine.
