                                Jut 20 seats, one chef, one server. The menu is focused, and completely, authentically Greek. It's a lovely, simple room - very welcoming and even cozy on an early Winter's night. We did meze and a few appetizers - scrumptious and more than enough food for two pretty big eaters. Their tzatziki is the best I've ever had, and I've had dozens in the US, Canada, and Europe (though I've never been to Greece...) The encyclopedic collection of Greek wines is simply mind-blowing - a full page for each, white and red. Wine prices seem fair - hard to know for sure because pricing for some of what they carry is difficult/impossible to find on the internet. The only issue with their wines is that the chef is the one who really knows them, and he is continuously busy in the kitchen. They do do 2.5 ounce pours of at least three reds and three whites. That is where we started. I really wish there were many, many more such small, genuine, excellent, and uncompromising ethnic restaurants in Southern Maine, and I specifically wish that Khione were north of Portland rather than all the way up in Brunswick (a 90-minute drive for us) - sigh! That said, in spite of the lengthy driver, we'll certainly be back!

                                The menu was small - not many choices. The (only)server was not patient. If we Wanted to think a bit longer about a decision, she took off to do something else. And she brought the main course before we had finished our appetizers.

                                So delicious. Our waitress/owner was fabulous. We were not familiar with the wine list, which was extensive and excellent. Asked her to offer us a wine based on what we liked. She nailed it. The food was over the top. Authentic and surprising. Definitely slow down and order something from every course to enjoy the full range of flavors. I recommend three spreads for the first course, served with their bread. An assortment of appetizers would be next, we ordered two for a party of four, but might go for a third the next time, as the menu regularly changes and we don’t want to miss a thing! We ordered this for the whole table and it does not disappoint! Main course was perfect size and each one was pleased. I had fish, two had lamb shanks (devoured) and one had the moussaka. ALL of us were very happy indeed. We will definitely be coming back.

                                The selections for food were varied and interesting, well prepared and flavorful. Service was excellent.. always prompt but not overly attentive. The wine menus is essentially entirely Greek and the waiter was very knowledgeable. We were able to describe the wines that we prefer and he matched our taste and price range very well.

                                Due to seasonal change in availability, highly anticipated dishes were removed from menu.(Greek salad, moussaka). However, substitutes were delicious, if not satisfying. Is it too much to ask that a Greek restaurant resort to out-of-season ingredients through the winter, especially since iconic Greek dishes ( Greek salad and moussaka) are key menu offerings? Make some accomodation, please!!

                                One of the best dinners I’ve had in a long time. The service was awesome. Everything was coursed with enough time to enjoy the plate. Everything was perfect.

                                Everything was fantastic. Seriously among the most distinctive and authentic tastes in the area. Despite the 'view' from any table, the ambiance and quality trigger memories of the real Greek seaside tavernas in my past. That said, it's way more expensive than most restaurants in Brunswick, so be prepared.

                                Our second trip. Food is a delicious and a reminder of how amazing top notch ingredients prepared simply can be. Small but great menu and always a special or two. Low key and attentive service. Attractive room, great dishes. One of my favorites ever. A great evening before dropping off our Bowdoin student.

                                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.

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

                                Forward-thinking take on a type of cooking that is usually left in the past. Unbelievable wine list. Thoughtful service. Can’t wait to dine again!
