We ended a happy afternoon at Harlow Carr with a warm welcome and delicious meal at Taverna. Tasty souvlaki with a generous sized mixed Greek salad (so often the downfall of restaurants), accompanied with a glass of Mythos. We'll be back!

We were visiting Harrogate for a well earned break and were looking for something different to try. We heard good things about Taverna so we went Greek for the night.

Taverna exceeded all of our expectations from start to finish. We were greeted and offered a seat on their outside terrace which was nice as it was a warm night. Our waiter arrived quickly to take our drinks order which arrived in no time. He quickly offered us his recommendations from the menu with great knowledge across the whole menu.

We settled for the Meat mezze for two and the food was outstanding. From the pitta and dip selection to the beef stifado and moussaka the food just kept coming each course better than the last. We finished with a traditional baklava and a Greek coffee.

The whole experience was fantastic and we cannot recommended Taverna enough. A must visit when in Harrogate.

The staff were very friendly and took time to chat to us. The weather was bad so it was challenging for the staff but they were very attentive and put things in place to keep diners warm. The food was fantastic and we will definitely return.

The food was fantastic,we had the meat mezza for two. There was loads of food and we ended up taking some of it away with us at the end of the evening as we couldn't eat it all. The staff were brilliant. We will definitely be back in a few weeks.
