Family owned taverna with great traditional food. Good value. A local shepherd's dog hung out by our table awaiting treats. He didn't like french fries. :)

Came here for lunch based on our driver’s recommendation and we enjoyed every dish that we ordered, the moussaka which was eggplant casserole was especially good. The chicken and pork skewers were very tender with great seasoning and charcoal flavor.

Enjoyed our last meal in Meteora here, and we chose well. Rather than feeling like the standard touristy restaurant in this area, at Taverna Gardenia they treat you like a guest and friend rather than a number - a friendly welcome that sets everyone up...More
