Description: Three brothers with extensive business activities decided to join their forces and their passion and created an amazing tavern! A unique and very welcoming place with delicious traditional Greek cuisine that you will simply adore! Homemade food, delicious seafood and appetizers, along with a variety of grilled meat is what you will taste in "Dyo Dekares i Oka", as this cozy tavern is called. Its name means "two dimes an oca", with oca being an old mass measurement unit, and will take you to the past. The flavours will do the same, as they resemble of an old, experienced Greek housewife's way of cooking. Pure ingredients, rich spices and lots of imagination are shuffled daily to offer you original culinary experiences. As for the space? Simple, cozy and welcoming. With beautiful decorative details that will make you feel intimate, like if you ate at a friend's house. At the evening, live music makes the mood take off.

I am so glad we visited this beautiful restaurant with the most amazing host and the best home cooked meals in Greece. The beef and pasta was divine, melt in mouth. So was the brinjal dish and chicken. The wonderful man at the counter made the portions sufficient for us. Can't praise this place enough. Outstanding! Don't think twice about going here.

Loved it. They were honest, fast, and the mousaka was to die for! They bring free grilled bread to start and a tiny ice cream dessert!

My boyfriend and I have been traveling for 6 months and this is one of the best meals that we had. The staff was very friendly and warm. It is a few blocks off of the tourist drag. Felt like you were going to your families place. The food was amazing and the price was good. YUM!

Very friendly staff in a nicely bio/eco ornamented restaurant. Really fresh tzatziki with tasty roasted bread. Huge pile of grilled meat: ment for 2, could feed Africa for a year. Free icecream for dessert!

The city has lot of restaurants however this one our group booked via TripAdvisor and were so much happy with the choice. We suggest to go for pre-cooked traditional Greek food which you can choose right from the food court. Definitely go for lamb , orzo with veal , Greek salad is simply amazing . All that we combined with nice pine white wine . The host was very welcoming and kind, everybody spoke English and in the end of lunch owner happily served us uzo for digestive .

One important thing , Greek portions huge, so be ready and better be hungry while coming to this place as you won’t be able to stop eating , food is too tasty !
