    I really enjoyed my evening out at Tavernaki and so did the friends I was with. The food was very good and the service impeccable! I will certainly be going back and will recommend to other friends! Well done, Tavernaki team! You have nailed it!

    A pleasant place on Portobello Road - decent Greek food, nothing too fancy but nicely-cooked, very friendly atmosphere and service, fairly quiet at lunchtime the two times I've been. Both times a good experience, and reasonably-priced, given the area.

    First time coming to the restaurant even though I’ve walked past it many times. The food was delicious and fresh. Service was good. The atmosphere was very nice however just a tad bit too noisy.

    Superb ambience and nice buzz - starters were utterly superb, wine was excellent and only slight hesitation was lamb in the kleftiko was a bit on the tough side of what I have experienced in this dish previously elsewhere - but I would definitely come back for sure!

    Our experience at Tavernaki was unmemorable! The food was delicious, including the pork, the octopus, spanakopita, feta with honey! My guests were amazed by Greek hospitality and tasty dishes. We will get back there as soon as possible! Thanks for making us feel like home with your tastes and philoxenia.

    Overall very nice, though the saganaki garides was very disappointing and tasted totally non authentic, couldn't taste any rigani or feta

    A great experience as usual. Fantastic food service and ambience, but topped off with Anna's lovely smile. I have visited and returned to this and its sister restaurants on Portobello Road, and every time Anna has been present, this morning attitude and smile has been a ray of sunshine. Highly recommended.

    Please cook the lamb chops on high heat, we paid £22 for some chops that were not edible. I swear the last time they were 10 times better.

    I have dine at the restaurant before and it was a much enjoyable time back then. This time it was very noisy with kids playing in the restaurant it felt under stuffed and the food quility felt touristic. I also found it expensive for what it was. Unfortunately will nit return again. Thank you

    Food was good but not blown away. Service was lovely but not overly attentive. It’s a decent place just didn’t blow my socks off

    Gem of a place - very good food and efficient and friendly service. Clearly frequented by regulars - which is a good thing. Our Tarama and roasted octopus were excellent, but the chicken in the souvlaki could have had more flavoring - a little bland for my liking. Nevertheless, the pita and onion accompaniments were excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

    Nice food with a buzzing atmosphere .. if they are serving dips surely it should automatically come to bread, I guess that was my only criticism.
