A couple notes about the Taverna-

We stop taking day of reservations after 4pm. Please call the restaurant after 4pm.

Parties of 4 people or more please call the restaurant. We are a small restaurant with only 14 seats and cannot always accommodate larger parties.

Established in April of 2015, 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 which features natural, orange and organic wines. We offer a unique dining experience that can only be found in a few select locations in the country. We welcome you to our little Taverna in Brunswick!

Four of us went for a birthday celebration dinner. I hesitate to leave the highest review I've ever left, as I want to selfishly keep this restaurant only to myself, but that wouldn't be right. We all absolutely adored this restaurant, from the atmosphere, to the service, to the wine, to the food - we ordered almost everything on the menu and every single thing was a 10/10. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Amazing treat and incredible service. Will go back again and got some fun recipe ideas until then! Try the feta with sesame seeds and honey and also the special gin and tonic.

Every single thing that arrives to our table blew our mind. That sounds dramatic, but it was all THAT good. Our server, Kate, was top notch. She was happy to share the story of the dishes and her knowledge of wine was beyond impressive. We live three hours away and make it a priority to visit Taverna Khione regularly because it’s that fantastic! 10000/10 recommend

Our second visit; first was pre-covid without reservations. Made reservations this time and our table was waiting for us upon arrival and for the next 95 mins we relaxed and enjoyed decadent yet simple nutritious food spaced apart from other diners for covid safety.

Best things about this place are authentic food and slow pace. It’s ridiculous and incompatible to “enjoy a fast meal”. They prepare your food to order and while you wait you enjoy your wine and appetizers. Perfect pace. Go hungry and eat a lot! Try the Retsina wine (pine flavor and fantastic!)

Highly recommended and we will be back. Thank you for such a high quality and thoughtful place in this are

Food was superb! Lovely lentil soup, lamb chops perfectly cooked with wonderful flavor. Dessert to die for. Hostess helped me pick a perfect wine, too.

Music is soft and unobtrusive. Decor is simple, but relaxed and welcoming. Reminded me of similar places in Greece.

Not an inexpensive meal, but well worth it, and I will definitely be back to try the duck breast!

This was such a delightful experience. Truly fabulous food, authentic, well prepared and interesting. If this restaurant were in my home town (Philadelphia) reservations would be impossible to get.
It's also a very greek and very good wine list. We tried a few things and they were all excellent and a good value.

I highly recommend Taverna Khione and hope to eat there again soon.

Delicious food, cozy atmosphere, great service. We loved the small plate options to share and the wine list had may Greek wines to choose from. The Baklava was the best I have ever had. A must visit while in Brunswick Maine. We will be back.

In my opinion this is the finest dining in Brunswick. The food is varied, perfectly prepared and presented, authentic, right size portions. The wait staff is personable, knowledgeable and available but not intrusive. I couldn't ask for a nicer evening out.

Taverna Khione : This small restaurant makes big promises and keeps them. I dare you to find another greek restaurant in New England as authentic & delicious.
We have eaten here 5 times now and have always had excellent food & service.
Recently, my dining partner & I both had the lamb chops (( which were locally sourced )) and my admiration for TK was confirmed by my friend who was visiting for the first time.
I love that the kitchen is run solely by the owner-chef which gives him full control of what is served. While the menu may only have a few items listed each nite, there is something for everyone.
This small restaurant in Brunswick is a true gem.

Small place th as t isn't fancy. The food is authentically Greek, the service quick and friendly and delicious. We were there on a Sunday, when they only offer a fixed price 3 course menu, but that was perfect.

Seating area was quite chilly. Servicer was nice, but it took too much time to get our courses. Wine by the glass was deceiving. The price was for a "half pour" rather than a full glass. Easy to miss that and the wine by the glass became too pricey!

We used to frequent this Taverna when it was located in VT. We were happy to return, it's worth the drive to Maine. We started with the spreads and bread & the horta (sautéed greens.) My spouse had lamb chops, which were delicious, and I had the moussaka, a favorite.

small, out of the way, worth finding and going to. Greek wines to go with the food and lots of help figuring out things if you are not already familiar with Greek food.
