Lively atmosphere with diners and servers line/Greek dancing throughout the restaurant for about 5 minutes---fun energy by the staff who managed to keep our small plate orders coming despite two very large parties and a full house. Outside seating was perfect to enjoy the festivities while also having a quieter space. Food was varied and delicious.

Food was excellent, service was very good, food came quickly, we went slightly early in the evening cause we took young children, but they liked the food and it was a very pleasant experience. Highly recommended.

What You'll Get

Tzatziki sauce has played a pivotal role in Western history, from its appearance at the Athenian assembly's first pizza party to its indelible smears on the edges of the manuscript of Homer's Odyssey. Eat history with this Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Greek fare and drinks at Taverna Plaka.

Proprietor Stelios Kyriacou combines an authentic Greek menu concocted from old family recipes with traditional Greek wedding festivities, including shouting "Opa!" and breaking plates. Diners can start dinner with a bang as a dancing wait staff taps their toes to the table with halloumi saganaki ($8), dousing the aged cow's-milk cheese in alcoholic ouzo and igniting it for a gooey appetizer. Chefs spear kebabs with a choice of chicken, beef, or lamb ($13–$17) and stuff baked eggplant ($13) with fresh tomatoes, garlic, onions, and well-aged copies of The Secret of NIMH.

As patrons sip ouzo and anchor fork tines in a solomos sti shara— grilled salmon glazed with honey and pine nuts, served with lemon potatoes—($18), belly dancers sashay around the room, swiveling hips in traditional Greek dances. Other entrees include lamb chops ($22) and a gyro plate ($14), and can be enjoyed on the outdoor covered patio or among the dancing legs of patrons on tables inside. Taverna Plaka offers complimentary valet parking for cars and pairs of rollerblades. Nighttime entertainment includes belly-dancing lessons, salsa dancing, and an international DJ spinning tunes on the weekends.

About Taverna Plaka

Long after dinner hours, guests at Taverna Plaka may feel as though they've stumbled into a Greek wedding party. Ouzo and wine flow as belly dancers swivel to Mediterranean techno spun by a DJ on the outdoor patio. Meanwhile, staffers lead revelers in throwing napkins, breaking plates, and cheering Greek chants. These festivities align with the restaurant's name, which pays homage to the ancient Plaka neighborhood in Athens, which, according to mythology, was the earthly place where gods once drank, danced, and exchanged balloon animals with mortals.

Proprietor Stelios Kyriacou's menus are equally authentic, anchored in old family recipes. Tzatziki, hummus, and eggplant spreads complement orders of horiatiki salad, lamb kabobs, and grilled salmon with lemon potatoes and spinach, as do specialty beverages such as the Greek Crush—a blend of Level vodka, blue curacao, and pineapple juice. Servers ferry flavors across stone-tiled floors between exposed brick walls and a bar backed by rows of Mediterranean spirits and neoclassical columns.
