The Taverna serves authentic Greek fare while remaining true to our Greek roots. Our menu highlights what is available to us locally and seasonally. Our wine list is one of the largest all Greek wine lists in the United States for which we were honored for in the August 2016 issue of Wine & Spirits magazine. We offer a unique dining experience that can only be found in a few select locations in the country. In October 2017 Marc moved the Taverna from Vermont back home to 25 Mill St in Brunswick Maine, the location of his first restaurant back in 2010. We welcome you to our little Taverna in Brunswick!

We went to celebrate our anniversary and all I can say is the food was terrible! We will not be going back and would never recommend this restaurant to anyone else!

Truly excellent food. All items the three of us ordered from across the menu were very well prepared and presented!! Nice decor. Excellent service. Very authentic Greek cuisine, and of high caliber. And, an excellent Mediterranean regional wine list. We will be back!

Excellent food, especially liked the goat ribs special. Warm, helpful staff. Room has a quiet, warm feel to it. It's a bit pricey but good-sized portions. I'll definitely be back.

We enjoyed a "taste of Greece" with this innovative and excellent menu choices; the waitperson was extremely knowledgeable and recommended a nice Greek wine to accompany our meals. We shared two of the "spreads" which was ample, shared the octopus appetizer (which was outstanding) and then had the fish special and the goat; both were very good.

Lovely meal, 4 appetizer dips with yum bread, grilled octopus and whole fish - service was great. No downside whatsoever!!

The Sunday prix fixe dinner was a good deal. Included appetizer, entree and dessert. Good wine selection too.

First visit was memorable. Excellent beet salad to start and delicious stuffed squid and stuffed pork loin. The dessert topped off the meal perfectly. Can’t wait to return!

We had a very nice meal during their Sunday prix fixe menu. The beef tongue with lentils was delicious, as was the stuffed calamari. The portions are fairly hearty and it definitely tasted authentic. Would highly recommend to those in Brunswick and beyond.

This restaurant has been reopened after a several year hiatus. We really enjoyed a somewhat similar menu before. Now, however, the food was very disappointing. Over cooked, over salted and not cheap. Taramasalata was prepared in an unusual way, was not tasty and way too salty. I had rabbit with fettuccini---wrong pasta and rabbit was over cooked. Stuffed grape leaves for dinner and lamb chops were also disappointing and too salty. Walnut cake for dessert was dry and not at room temperature. I feel like whomever was cooking the food did not have much experience. I have a Greek cookbook which has some great recipes. Maybe I'll send a copy to the chef. We will not go again which is really too bad.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing. You cannot go wrong with any of the spread appetizers and my mom and I split the lamb chops and fettuccine and both were absolutely amazing.

Decided to try Taverna Khione after reading a review in our local paper. We went on a Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed the Prix Fixe menu. The dining room is small and intimate, the service was great and the food was delicious ! Be prepared to try some new dishes. I think I have a couple of new favorites !

Thrilled to discover this tiny gem in Brunswick. Fabulous Greek food in a tiny, simple setting. Charming service, excellent food, and homemade bread that is good enough to be sold by the loaf.

Excellent Greek food and wines. Small-dozen tables + 6 seat bar. Reservations recommended.
Sundays-menu written on blackboard-appetizers, entrée, dessert. Last Sunday was Greek Easter-so food was aimed at what one would find on that day. Weekdays-menu provides good mix of foods. Staff knowledgeable about wines. Wish I lived closer so I could make weekday evening visits.

We were welcomed warmly when we stepped through the door, the staff is very knowledgeable and will help suggest if you want. Very clean, great atmosphere, staff is attentive but not hovering. We definitely plain on returning.
