The Big Time Taverna is owned and run by Melina Tsiotsiopoulos.  Melina, with her late husband Peri, opened the restaurant 25 years ago.

Sit inside at the warmth of the fire in Winter or outside on a Summers night and enjoy the hospitality of Peri and his staff. Everything about this restaurant is Greek from decor, to food, wine, speciality drinks such as Ouzo and Metaxa Brandy.

The Big Time Taverna caters for weddings, corporate events, birthday parties and welcomes families with children who have the pool at their disposal leaving their parents to enjoy some quiet time. Come taste and enjoy a small piece of Greece with us.
