We had been to this taverna a few years ago, and though the food wasn't wonderful, it was perfectly okay -- good enough to make it possible to enjoy the lovely setting to the full. Now it is downright awful, the worst we have ever been served in Greece. Even the taramasalata was dreadful. We suspect the matriarch who used to do the cooking may have died; whatever the reason, this is now a place to avoid. It's a pity, too, because the setting is absolutely beautiful.

Abominable food. Nothing, nothing is worth eating here. We gave our lamb to the cats and left everything else uneaten.

Heroula’s tavern has a very nice sitting arrangement: you pleasantly sit outside with a nice atmosphere in a cozy little square under a tree in the scenic little village of Marpissa. Regrettably, sitting accommodation is the only positive feature worth mentioning for this restaurant. Food is very bad, badly cooked and for most dishes accompanied by an excessive portion of French fries. They are not able to deliver even the most popular and easy to prepare Greek specialties. For example the Greek salad does not come with feta cheese and the popular fried cheese saganaki was too fried and hard to eat; moussaka was tasteless. Incredibly the restaurant does not have a wine list and the only wine available is a rose’ house wine which literally is not drinkable: more vinegar than wine. Sadly to say, one of the worst culinary experiences on the island of Paros. Price is reasonable but certainly not worth the food. I spare it a “terrible” rating only to commend the pleasant outdoor sitting.

Located in the middle of Marpissa, at a beautiful small square, serves lunch and dinner during the summer months. Do not expect anything fancy. You will find fresh products (most of the vegetables they grow themselves, and some of the animals are theirs too), big portions, and friendly people. Oh, and if you get there early, try and get a table on the balcony. The view will reward you!
