After days and days of delicious Indian cuisine, we were desperate for a change! and greek food was exactly that! Really enjoyed fresh salads, greek dishes and the setting, will definitely come back to eat here and recommend it to all Palolem visitors.

Tavernaki which means taverna in Greek is a quaint little reataurant situated right on main Palolem beach.It is the first of its kind here.Dressed completely in white and barely 20 feet from the shoreline,this shack serves authentic Greek cuisine from the grill.From souvlaki wraps,gyros,kebabs and juicy grilled meat it also keeps up with the spirit of Goa by serving mouthwatering grilled seafood,Greek style!With portions fit for a king you will never leave hungry.So Come,experience,enjoy!The Taverna awaits!
