We have been using Knossos Taverna for many years, and the tradition is it has to be the first meal of the holiday. Good to see Bill again, lovely food and always an enjoyable experience. Hope to see you again next year!

After trying, unsuccessfully to eat at Avra (separate review), we ended up here, which turned out to be a positive, friendly helpful staff, prompt service and good food.. A positive also is they had all of our first choices which Avra didn't, and we're not...More
