Manas Kouzina Kouzina: Mama's cuisine

hot tip

This is not just Greek cuisine; it is the cuisine of Greek mothers.

Here you are served the food families eat, whether in the Cyclades or the mountains. It is prepared, simmered, grilled as it is by many Greek mothers. Among the dishes of this gourmet tour: Corfu sofrito, beef meatballs with bulgur and paprika à la Kavala, stuffed Domotospeppers, and Pondos spinach pie. It's an entire culinary heritage that Spathas Stefanos, the owner, features to defend its roots.

All dishes on the menu are cooked with fresh ingredients purchased from local producers, which goes for the wines and beers as well. Some evenings, bands play traditional music. The kitchen is open to the dining room, as it is at home, with pans hanging from the ceiling. Outside, a large terrace has been set up, which is very convenient for a quick lunch. You can also take your meal away, including, for dessert, an excellent portokalopita. This is an orange pie, but maybe it's time for you to start speaking Greek?
