We adore this restaurant! We sat upstairs on the patio. We split the saganaki and the Greek Tasting Platter (calamari, hummus, feta spread and tzatziki). The pita bread is awesome and the tzatziki if incredibly delicious. We recommend this restaurant to all of our friends!

The family loved this restaurant! Food was all excellent with fresh local vegetables and atmosphere on the roof or in the main dining area was pleasant and peaceful. The roof top is great when the weather is not overly hot and humid but shaded .

Well, it wasn't the best moussaka I've ever had but the cool white wine (not Greek) was soothing in the heat of the day. Taylor did a wonderful job. Thank you.

Loved the decor, colors were beautiful, as was rooftop. For a business lunch, with 12-14 people, they were able to seat us, and the service was great as well. Only problem was the food. The Greek salad had great flavor, but the olives all had...More

Popped in for lunch as was staying in hotel next door. Quietly surprised. Family run and very friendly. We had a sharing platter for a light lunch and a couple of drinks. very reasonably priced. I would go again for a more substantial meal.

The blueberry lemonade is excellent and the food is good. I wish the beer list was better but the service has always been good and the atmosphere is great. The roof top terrace is absolutely stunning.

Taverna Agora is an authentic Greek kitchen & bar where friends & family enjoy good wine, eat wonderfully prepared, simple food and relax. The restaurant is reminiscent of gathering places found in Greece, with old world flavors and rustic roots. However, Taverna Agora expands beyond the traditional agora with a few modern flares, including hand-crafted cocktails, a gourmet marketplace and Sunday brunch.
