Taverna is a Greek word taken from the Latin taberna, or “tavern”. Originally it was a place where Greek men passed the time drinking wine and talking about daily life. Gradually its role expanded, until today it has come to describe an informal establishment that offers a place to talk, drink and share a meal with friends. Taverna fare uses only the best seasonal ingredients, usually just picked, caught or slaughtered. Fresh seafood is usually showcased on the menu. An assortment of appetizers - tapas and meze – is proudly offered and diners are encourage to pick out an array of different varieties to feast.
