We have had dinner at Taverna Gorgona several times recently. It never disappoints. Service is good. Table setting with linen tablecloth and and napkins is excellent.
Their wine list is limited and they were out of the only New Zealand white.
Menu has a good selection. Portions are the right size and nicely presented.

Great food, wonderful experience. Will definitely go again. Had hummus, saganaki and Caesar salad to start. All were very tasty. Then for mains we ordered the souvlaki - lamb and chicken which came with Greek salad, rice, potatoes and some tzatziki. Very delicious !

Always have excellent food here. Unfortunately we had to send our meals back to be heated up but other than that, it was excellent. When they brought it back out, they had refreshed all the side dishes like salad etc. Never had a complaint in all the time going here

We had a great time, the only thing that doesn’t sit well with me but I understand why, is the fact you have to book an early reservation or a 7 o’clock one. Bring back the “ good old days” when you can book a convenient time for the diner.

Everything was amazing in the restaurant. Lamb was delicious. Service was great.
I would have given 5 stars overall but the sidewalk walking in had not been shoveled and my 88 year old father had trouble safely walking in and out.
Definitely will return.

Taverna gorgona for dessert was a challenge. We wanted to order dessert with coffee but found out the restaurant had no whipped cream no ice cream I know other topping available the menu for the deserts even said with whipped cream so he left with no dessert and no coffee not impressed

Superb, as always. Quite busy but we felt safe and, despite the number of diners, were able to carry on a conversation without needing to shout. And the food was fantastic. Always a favourite.

I have been to the Taverna Gorgona restaurant many times. The food is always good. They don’t skimp on portion sizes at all.
I wish they had more vegetarian choices.

I have recommend Taverna Gorgona several times to friends and to travel agents and each time I can't say enough about how much my wife and I have enjoyed our dinner. We have had the lamb chops, the garlic prawns, the saganaki(sp)and other entrees which we thoroughly enjoyed! The desserts are also very enjoyable and tasty. The wine selection is more than adequate and the service is excellent. We can"t wait to go back.

The only problem was a table of 8 partygoers that were extremely loud. Everything was absolutely perfect - my son is a chef and he had only good things to say (which is unusual for him)/

A nice time. Souvlaki meats were tender but a little on the unseasoned side, and the greek salad lacked dressing. Appetizers were delicious, and the food was generally authentically Greek! Will try the lamb chops next time.
