Have eaten in The Traditional and have never been let down. The food is magnificent and the portions are massive. The nights on which they have Greek dancing or music are exceptional. Although it is about 300 metres out of the centre of the village it is well worth the effort to reach it. This restaurant cannot be beaten.

The Traditionalnis a first class taverna a million miles away from mass produced moussaka. The food is home cooked by Katerina and it is fresh, very tasty and presented with a flourish rarely found in Greece. It is often easiest simply to ask what is best rather than choosing from the menu - Taki, probably the best restauranteur you'll ever meet, will see you right.

The restaurant has been artfully designed to play to its traditional name so it is an experience to go there as well as a meal.

The Monday night Greek dancing is very well done and, as it spills out into the little cobbled street in from of the taverna, well attended by the local people living nearby.

The Traditional may be a little walk from the harbour but it is well worth it and the little streets leading away from the front are pleasant in themselves.

The Traditional is a 10 minute walk out of the main square and beach areas of Petra where most of the restaurants are located but is well worth the effort. Despite its name the Traditional takes a different twist on well known Greek dishes and also presents them in clay pots. The kleftiko was amazing and the excellent house wine made for a fun evening.

If you are in or around Petra, "The Traditional" is a must for delicious Greek food & hospitality. You can have really great food -a wide variety to choose from- for a reasonable price at this restaurant. The host dear Takis and his family do their best to make you feel at home. And on Mondays, they have Greek night, which means that you'll have the opportunity to enjoy various mezes along with Greek dancing. (By the way, although they say they serve some mezes on a Greek night, it also includes two main dishes served in clay pots :) ) (15 € per person including the drinks). When you're leaving The Traditional either on a Monday night or on an ordinary night, you feel that not only your stomach but also your soul is full... (Telephone: 697 7886340)
