It does not get much better than this. The lamb is basted in garlic and slowly cooked to perfection.
Feta cheese is made from goat's milk and another Greek delight. Served with Greek Salad, on its own or grilled in the oven, feta is good for all occasions.
Olives and Olive Oil
Green and black olives are found in abundance and are found in most salads. It goes without saying that the olive oil is superb too.
A greek specialty, tzaziki consist of yoghurt, cucumber and lots of garlic. Delicious with a souvlaki, fries, bread and just about anything else you can think of.
Octopus and calamari can be found on both the starters and mains sections on the menus. Fish is fresh and is usually served as fish of the day so be sure to ask. The fish is pricier than the rest of the dishes on the menus but a treat and must have if you are a fish fan.
Tomatoes, lettuce, green pepper, feta cheese, red onion and olives. Great lunchtime snack in the heat of the day or light meal in the evening.
Traditional Greek dish made from layers of minced lamb, aubergines and white sauce.
