Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses. For $12, you'll get $30 worth of authentic Greek fare at Costas Restaurant in the heart of Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. Costas' seasoned chefs combine olive oil, fresh vegetables, herbs, wine, fish, and yogurt to make classic Greek cookery that will leave you longing for the islands of the Aegean, or an island on top of another, better island.

About.com recommends that first-time visitors try Costas' Greek platter: moussaka, pastitsio, stuffed grape leaves, gyro, and tzatziki sauce ($14.95). Other specialities include the souvlaki platter ($10.95), lamb shish-ka-bob ($14.95), and stuffed grape leaves ($5.95). Costas also offers vegetarian options, such as hummus ($4.95) and spanakopita ($11.95). If you're craving the toothsome beasts of the brine, try blackened mahi mahi ($13.95), Grecian octopus ($12.95), calamari ($11.95), or three styles of shrimp ($10.95 to $15.95). Other perks include lunch specials, a children's menu, a recently upgraded bar, and breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays.

Costas is a clean, comfortable restaurant with a friendly, experienced staff, who will greet you with Costas' freshly baked bread. Ask about a dish and they'll be glad to tell you its ingredients, how it's prepared, and what kinds of dreams its ingestion will induce. If your New Year's Resolution was to try something new and you've already learned how to tie knots with your feet, completed a sudoku puzzle, and sold something that wasn't yours on eBay, this is the perfect chance to treat your taste buds to Greek food. Stick to your resolution, for as Homer put it most succinctly in Book 19 of the Iliad:

οὐ γὰρ ἀνὴρ πρόπαν ἦμαρ ἐς ἠέλιον καταδύντα

ἄκμηνος σίτοιο δυνήσεται ἄντα μάχεσθαι.

Reviews

About.com awards Costas Restaurant 4.5 stars, complimenting the authentic food and amiable staff:

  • While the food is excellent, what cannot be overstated is the quality of the service in this restaurant. Veteran servers are always ready to answer diners' questions about dishes, recommend selections and even share information about the community. – Lee Zumpe, About.com

Citysearchers gives Costas four stars, while Trip Advisors gives it four owl eyes:

  • Everything is homemade and the portions are huge. We had the calamari which melted in our mouths and the lamb which was very tender...I found Costas by asking a local who said that he only eats there - now I know why. – jiim2, Citysearch
  • My experience at Costas was excellent, I enjoyed everything from the prompt, friendly service to the atmosphere and food. The restaurant is clean and the food is fantastic. I had the Best Chicken Souvlaki of my life at Costas!!! – ShannNewYork, Trip Advisor

Costas Restaurant

Stelios Migadakis had long dreamt of moving his family from New York to Florida’s sun-drenched shores, jumping at the chance to open an eatery in Tarpon Springs’ Greek Town. He draws from the Old World recipes of his kin in Crete and his wife's relatives in Lesvos to compose a menu consisting of delicately battered seafood and slow-roasted lamb and beef. Within the elegant eatery, murals of serene Greek isles and grazing herds of Trojan horses punctuate the pale-marble walls as Greek music spills out onto the adjoining patio.

Customer Reviews

It's a quaint place, the staff was nice and friendly, however, It wasn't bad but I wasn't impressed with the red wine or the food.
