Part of Andros Taverna

Driven by seasonality our kitchen provides traditional cuisine alongside innovative new dishes to serve a fresh and contemporary expression of a Greek menu.

Our menu is rooted in tradition while highlighting quality products with updated classic mezes, crisp salads, responsible meats and wild seafood cooked over glowing embers of charcoal. Our pitas are stretched to order, brushed with the world’s finest olive oil, and most flavorful when wrapped around souvlaki fresh off the grill.

Flavorful classics with modern sensibility create a unique and new Greek dining experience at Andros Taverna.
