    If you like real food this place is for you. We don't eat out often but when we do we go for quality. Classy yet really down to earth, we've been 3 times and love it!

    When I pulled up to this place I wasn’t expecting much but once inside we had a great experience. Food was great, service was quick (the owner was working the front of house), and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Definitely recommended.

    We drive fom Alexandria for this experience. My husband and I love to escape from the beltway and walk into this place, reconnecting with ourselves and a profound sense of community. The service is incredible - warm, personal, and genuinely invested in your experience. The charcuterie boards are beautifully prepared and each element is unique and delicious. If you’ve never visited before, you will be amazed at how much ambiance there is here. This is a small place that is filled to the brim with character. You have to experience this place - it is refined, but unpretentious. And it’s a great spot to pick up artisan olive oils and balsamic vinegars for the foodies in our lives.

    I came in with my parents who are diabetic and the only options for them for beverages were hot tea, coffee, or water. My only complaint was that there was nothing diet, or even iced tea as options for them.

    What a gem, in an unremarkable strip mall in Manassas. Excellenty Greek and Mediterranean wines, excellent selection of olive oils and balsamic vinegars for sale. The meat ball side dish with yogurt, feta, and pita makes for a remarkable bite size gryo. Loved the cheese board, with a really fun selection of cheeses. And the dips are great.

    The food was fresh, authentic, and delicious! I wish the menu offered unsweetened iced tea. With no diet soda option, an unsweetened iced tea would be great. The restaurant is small so I highly recommend the reservation option.

    Went mid-day on a Sunday and had a bottle of wine and Taste of Old Country platter. Everything was fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the hot appetizers and dips in particular. Highly recommend checking it out. It’s close to 234/66 so great access and ample parking.

The warm baklava with chocolate balsamic glaze was amazing. Everything is made to order and so fresh. We will continue to recommend this restaurant/marketplace!

    Had a late lunch here today and it was fabulous! we shared the Taste of Old Country Mega Platter charcuterie board and tried their house wine flights (pics below). Loved the mega platter and found a couple of house wines to order full glasses of. We also tried their desserts. The Greek Orange Cake with a raspberry balsamic drizzle was amazing. The baklava with chocolate sauce was also really good. We will definitely be adding this to our regular rotation of places to eat. 10/10

    We went at noon on a Tuesday, so it was quiet. There was only one other customer there when we arrived. The owner was able to spend a good amount of time with us, and also served us. We had food and wine, including a dip board and a small meat and cheese board. There is a good selection of small bites, tasting boards, paninis, and dips. Everything was excellent, and we took home some babaganoush, an Italian panini, and some Greek olive oil. We will definitely be back!

    I have not been back to the Manassas area for several years. When I was looking for a restaurant to meet an old friend open table pointed me here: “the taste of old country.” The outside is quite unassuming, the inside is well put together. The waiter was patient and well informed on the house specials and blends. I was impressed they had beer from Greece “Mythos.” For lunch both my friend and I had freshly made paninis; they were delicious!
