“Tapas? No, it serves meals.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

It is classed as a tapas/meze place but does not offer the little sampler dishes you expect of tapas.
The menu is basically of full blown meals for one priced accordingly. So if there are only two of you,
you get two full plates. If there are ten of you, you can order 10 meals and share but you can do this in any taverna, so my wife and I were disappointed. Beer is also expensive.
On the plus side it is in a lovely location next to the sea at the quiet end of the island so very little noisy traffic which blights many other tavernas on Poros. The food is also of very good quality.
No small plates though and it should class itself as a taverna and then would merit at least 4 stars.

“Tapas food Greek style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

One of our favourite lunchtime spots used to be a taverna called Akrotiri which did the best pizza on the island; but sadly it closed a few years ago. It was at the far end of town on the road that goes towards the Sirocco nightclub, just before you go up the hill, close to where a lot of the sailing flotillas moor. This year this new eatery has opened there. We had lunch there twice towards the end of our last trip in June this year and we will most certainly be returning on our next visit in September. It does lots of the traditional Greek dishes served meze style but also some really interesting dishes that you cannot get elsewhere on the island. These include paella, marinated tuna, patatas locas (crazy potatoes – a must have), fried pancetta and some other Spanish tapas dishes. The owners have run restaurants in Brighton, England: she is Swedish and he is Greek and they were both very welcoming. The food is different, well prepared, very tasty and the portions generous. Sitting on the dockside, watching the passing boats and looking back towards the main part of Poros, whilst eating lovely food is very relaxing. Meze Meze is a little bit out of the way, but well worth the effort.
