“Ate here three nights in a row...”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Fabulous. Worked through several traditional (non-touristy) Greek dishes I wanted to try, all were available. And each time, they provided free incredible home made dessert. The host (brothers?) were wonderful. The top choice by far in Delfi.

“Best option in town”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We went to Vakhos, Dion, and Gargadouas while we were in town. While none of them were amazing, this was the best option. They had authentic options - the mushrooms in cream was great, as was there local wine. We didn't care so much for the cabbage rolls and rabbit stew, but it was authentic.

“Great meal and setting!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Our guide for day trip to Delphi took us here, perhaps best guide recommendation ever. Spectacular views and setting. Great food including home made Bahklava! Friendly service from the family who own and cook. All food locally purchased and grown. We enjoyed the Delphi Museum and site, but loved Taverna Vakhos. Our family of parents and encourages you to visit. This was as good as any meal we can get at home in San Francisco for half the price.

“Best food we had in Greece”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Rather than go to the tourist trap recommended by our tour rep we asked a couple of shop owners if they could recommend a good locals’ restaurant - among others they both recommended this place. We got there quite early in the evening and had a table by the window which has a stunning view, it filled up quite quickly after we arrived so most did not get the view. The food and service was second to none, by far the best food we had on our trip and one of the best meals we’ve had anywhere. Highly recommended, it’s on the next road up from the main street so only a minute or so walk.

“Best homemade food”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This family run restaurant has a beautiful view of the mountains, the sea, and the village below. I had fresh stuffed grape leaves which were hand picked by the cook right from the grape vines outside the window. It was delicious. I also had the best moussaka in Greece. It was really, really good. The service was very friendly and felt like home. We stopped there after my trip to Delphi on a private tour with George's Taxi, from Athens. My guide and driver, Theo, was the nicest guide I have ever met. Well worth the extra money for a private tour. The big bus tours missed out on this great place.
