“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

I love the feel of old town and eat out often at the various restaurants. I must say my experience at Taverna was par excellent! The food was rich in flavor and pleantiful. But the customer service was just as much of the experience as the food......OUTSTANDING! It made for a wonderful and intimate evening.

“Worst Ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is a disgrace of a restaurant – Exclusively for those that do not know what real Greek food looks like – It is a sad restaurant with a rude service.

We were in food heaven while in Greece but this place tops any place we ate in Greece. We love eating in the garden.

“Good Greek restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I went there with a couple of friends in March. The service was super friendly and more than one person continually checked on us, which was very nice. We struggled with what to order as there are quite a few options. I settled on the Taverna Special with as an assortment of 4 Greek dishes and all were delicious. We then couldn't resist the baklava and all had a piece! We also couldn't decide on a wine and they were kind enough to let us sample a glass rather than pay for a whole bottle.

“Good Greek food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Authentic and Tasty Greek food with reasonable prices. Lamb shank with orzo was very good. My wife had the chicken shish kabob which was tasty but a little dry. Very friendly waiter, Hassan.
