“Best Greek Cooking of MY 4-Week Travels in Greece”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

So whether you are seated outside or if you walk into this place with its small modest tables and chairs, you are probably thinking that this is nothing more than an unassuming Greek Taverna with nothing to impress.
We went in around 3pm when the aroma of the fresh food cooking and it was amazing. The owner took us into the kitchen so we could see what the cook was preparing. Our Greek-American party of five had appetizers and entrees which included lamb with orzo, stuffed peppers and tomatoes, eggplant, meatballs, dolmathes, pastichio ...you name it. It was fantastic. It was unanimous from our party which ranges from a 12 year old boy to an 80 year old grandmother that this was the best Greek cooking that we experienced during our 4 weeks in Greece. The prices were very reasonable so you get the best food giving away some ambience at a great price. The owner made us feel like we were all in his home.

“Rabbit and the best house rose”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We chose this because they served rabbit stew; although there were too many onions. The couldn't understand that we wanted the chips with the meal and so it came as a starter. However, they did serve the best house rose.

“Great food and great service...”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We are avid users of trip advisor when selecting places to eat, stay and things to do. We did that tonight and the two places we selected were closed for the season. Fortunately, a grocery store owner guided us to Ta Fanaria. We were warmly greeted at the door and shown to our table. We weren't disappointed from there... we ordered the fried cheese and the pastitsio and found both to be wonderful! I also had a lovely glass of white wine. We enjoyed a little comfort food after a long days drive!

“A good place to eat”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

It is a typical greek taverna although whatever we ordered was cooked really well. The feta in the oven was really good and the french potatoes were so tasty. The location is nice but one waiter didn't say even hello but the other guy was really helpful.

“Classic taverna”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We liked the atmosphere inside the place in cold weather. Good standard fare. Friendly service. They never recently had some of the dishes advertised outside that we liked in years past. The "barreled wine" ain't.
