Delicious Greek food

One thing we Greeks know how to do is EAT! Gathering around the table for great food and good conversation is our passion. With over 1500 islands and countless villages on the mainland, there is a huge choice in food. . When you sit down at a Greek taverna (restaurant) the first thing you’ll notice will undoubtedly be the freshness of the food. Since Greece is a relativity small country most of what you eat in will be fresh and locally produced! We guarantee that once you eat Greek food in Greece you’ll find it hard to go back to your favourite Greek restaurant back home. One daunting task visitors have in Athens is finding that one true traditional taverna with authentic Greek food. It is true that the guide books can recommend many places for you but it really takes a local to show you the best places to eat. During the walking tour our guides will share with you their favourite places to eat. Look out for our special deals with local restaurants

We in are often familiar Greek food in our home town from Greek restaurants, but remember they will often cater to tastes and expectations of the locals there, so lots lamb etc. Greek love lamb dishes but not every day.
