Best Taverns Restaurants in Greek Islands

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Greek Islands team

The taverna is an essential part of Greek culture and cuisine and encompasses all the spirit and flavours of Greece. Normally these restaurants on the Greek Islands are small and cosy.

In the tavernas you'll find an abundance of traditional Greek food such as the famous Greek salad, appetizers like tzatziki or tirokafteri, and baked dishes such as moussaka. Many of the tavernas will provide English menus and you may find touts will try to encourage you to come and dine at their restaurants.
