I have been in this restaurant 3 times so far, with friends, young environment fast the service and really authentic greek food! Advised by greeks colleagues! There is a broad variety of starters and main dishes that cover the whole greek cousine...Absolutely to try is the classical Moussaka and the lamb cooked in the oven "sto furno" or grilled pork meat and souvlaki. Nice is also the grilled calamary, rare to found at this latitude!
The general price for a strater, main course and dessert is around 200 SEK (20 euros).
In this reastaurant you can site until 11 o'clock of the night, In a city plenty of take away and were the restaurants close at 7-8 o'clock.
Environment cozy, nothing of fashion or ultra modern, just a classic greek taverna!

This is one of my favourite places in Göteborg, frequently visiting it and one of my first choices for dinner with friends. The food is delicious with a large variety of choices. The mix plates they have is always a good option. Their ice cream is also amazing. This restaurant quite successfully give the impression of a classy tavern and a regular price for a dish and a drink would be around 200 SEK.

Quite hungry after a stroll in the afternoon sun in park Slottsskogen, we headed for the nearby Lilla Tavernan, small, but cosy greek restaurant at Olivedalsgatan 17. Friday evening as it was, we were lucky and got the last two places left at a small table inside. The atmosphere was friendly and familial. The waitresses really busy, but efficient and smiling. Our waitress told us we might have to wait a little, but soon came back for our orders. It was good we had to wait, as it took some time to contemplate the menu and choose. The waitress professionally answered our questions about some dishes, when we needed information due to different allergies, as if this was standardinformation (unlike in a restaurant in Monaco, when similar questions made the waitress angry instead!).
For starters we chose Garides Skordates (grilled scampi with garlic) and Haloumi tigamito me meli (deep-fried haloumi with honey), both really nice - the first bite was a delight, with the sweetness of the honey blending with the haloumis more country-rough taste. The haloumi dish was really too much for one person and could easily be enough for more than one. The scampi was good too, according to my husband. For main courses we chose Xifias (grilled swordfish) and Briam (oven-baked zucchini, aubergine and potatoes with Feta-cheese). The swordfish was well appreciated by my husband and the accompanying garlic mashed potatoes really nice, whilst the fried potatoslices were more average. The Briam I had, was fresh in taste and contrasted well to the bits of haloumi I had saved to eat with it. Being served in it's bakingdish, the dish is really hot, so be careful and preferably eat slowly.
The restaurant has a winelist, but wanting something non-alcoholic, we chose lemon-water among the available alternatives. Like most restaurants, they could add a few more non-alcoholic alternatives to their list, but being a greek restaurant in Sweden they have a list of beverages that fits most customers. We couldn't manage dessert, but they have some nice alternatives there.
This is a place you won't leave hungry and prices are reasonable (starters around 5-9 Euros, main courses around 12-16 Euros). The decor is no way near the cool scandinavian style, but is meant to give you that greek feeling with painted walls, pillars and pictures and tavernastyle furniture. Together with the greek music (low) and all guests talking (less low) this gives a nice atmosphere, equally good for the couple's night out as for the extended family gathering or starting the girls' night out. They have a few tables on the outside too, but on the narrow pavement, so groups will have to sit inside. The restaurant is popular and many come back (as we do), so I would definitely recommend Lilla Tavernan.
English is spoken and our waitress also spoke French. See www.lillatavernan.se for opening hours and menu.
