Evi Evane has excellent service, while one of the sisters is in the kitchen the other serves customers and was absolutely wonderful - friendly, happy to explain and suggest dishes, and full of smiles. The décor is homely with old stone walls and wooden beams supporting the sagging ceiling. Surrounds which are incredibly fitting with the Latin Quarter and a cuisine which boasts 4000 years of history.
We started with the Pikilia, an assortment of cold starters accompanied by warm pita slices with scatterings of olive oil and herbs: Pureed broad beans with olive oil and capers, Tzatziki (strained yoghurt with cucumbers and dill), Marinated Mushrooms, White Taramasalata (cod roe mixed with olive oil and lemon juice), Aubergine salad, and Dolma (rice, pine nuts and raisins wrapped in a grape leaf) on a bed of Greek yoghurt.
Thereafter I went for the Moussaka: minced beef wrapped in an aubergine parcel, grilled with cheese on top. This was great. Good fresh ingredients and well balanced: not too dry and the sauce inside was the right consistency to not make the aubergines soggy. The cheese on top was not too heavy either and the salsa verde drizzled around the side was the perfect finish.
My fellow diners both opted for pork cocotte with prunes which was fantastic as well. Tender and moist chunks of meat, in a rich sauce sweetened slightly by the prunes served in a traditional copper dish.
Despite our protests that we were too full for desert, out host insisted on us trying some baklava and galatopita, which is a milk pie served with cinnamon sirop. Both were sweet, rich and absolutely delicious. We certainly didn’t regret it and I’ve made a mental note to save space for dessert next time.
This was all washed down with a reasonably priced bottle of red Greek wine which was surprisingly rounded and refreshing.
