The dance around the restaurant and if the mood strikes you, you too can join them and dance. They have been known to dance the Zorba with as many as one hundred guests.
Don't forget to enjoy the belly dancers. They are so gracious and do the authentic dances of Greece including the flame dance with fire blazing on their heads.
Do not worry about the summer heat. We will have our own private room and bar. If the weather is nice, you can also enjoy the patio. We will enjoy 1/2 price mezze (appetizers) and drink specials (all listed below).
Not only is the mezze 1/2 price all night for 35up members but, according to Goyot, the mezze happen to be Taverna Plaka?s best dishes. Enjoy the skordalia, the red pepper spread with pita points, and the hummus. For the latter, you?ll be handed a bowl of garbanzo beans and a mortar to mash the bowl?s contents yourself to the desired consistency. They have the ever so popular spreads such as tzatziki, hummus, eggplant spread, and htipiti (the feta and roasted red bell pepper spread). There are the traditional Greek salads such as the horiatiki salad made with cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, feta, and black kalamata olives with an oregano, olive oil and balsamic dressing. Have you ever had the famous Greek flaming cheese? You must really try this. It is so delicious. There are two choices of flaming cheese, the halloumi or the kefalograviera cheese. The servers bring it out and flame it tableside with ouzo, the traditional Greek aperatife. It really is delicious.
