Taverne Pegasos is considered by many locals to be one of the best Greek restaurants in the city. After a few meals here, it’s not hard to see why; every dish is prepared faithfully according to Greek tradition, using only the most authentic ingredients. Their specialty is fish, so if you’re a fan of seafood be sure to try their king-fried prawns, their lemonata (fresh steamed fish in a fine lemon sauce), or even their seafood spaghetti. Meat lovers will find plenty of satisfying options here as well, from the classic mousaka to the tempting bifteka (a spicy hamburger stuffed with feta cheese). Taking a look at their drinks list, you’ll also discover an uncommon selection of excellent Greek wines. As this popular restaurant is often full, remember to book a table in advance.
