“Great food, good people.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

My boyfriend and I were recently traveling through Ko Lanta. I love anything Mediterranean food and was getting over curry and stir fried whatever so this definitely made me happy to see as we were passing by. We right away got to chatting with the owner, Maria, who is very knowledgable and passionate about Greek food and culture. She went through the menu with us and gave us her suggestions. Our meal was excellent and we were very happy with the service and the conversation about Maria and how she came to create Greek Taverna. Thank you for the fantastic meal Maria and best of luck to you and your family!

Also, get the chocolate caramel desert, it's AMAZING! I was so full from my meal but was not going to let that deliciousness go to waste so we left there feeling very full! ;)

“Bountiful meals”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

This place serves some seriously good Greek grub, the price is pay what you get as the food is fresh, good ingredients and massive portion sizes. The staff are really friendly and will help you through the menu if you've not eaten Greek food before.

Well worth a visit.

One negative: all the potatoes they serve here seem to be under cooked.

“Wonderful people and food!!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Great portions (luckily take away containers)! The family run place is amazingly delicious! Who knew in the middle of a small Thai island!? I've been without proper Greek food for a couple of years, and this was a blessing! Go! (Have some ouzo for me!)

“Shouldn't be missed”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Real Greek food for just the right amount of money. Perfect to change flavours after the many days of pad Thai.
The owners and runners are a lovely couple of expats from Greece. They're happy people who love the islands and their Greek food and they will make you feel as happy as they are.
