It's a very relaxed place with sitting outside and in the interior which is a very pleasing atmosphere.Service was fine and the food good (chicken Panellinio excellent, meat balls just average).

Panellinio Tavern is simply the best in town. We tried a number of restaurants in Kalabaka but none of them was as good as Panellinio. Definitely recommend it

We stopped here based on a recommendation after visiting the Meteora monasteries with all of us being famished. Being Good Friday, we weren't really expecting to find a full menu but were pleasantly surprised to find that almost everything was available. As opposed to the typical Greek taverna, food comes out as individual dishes instead of plates to share. It's... More

We took our afternoon meal here after arriving in Meteora. They have a nice variety of old Greek staples including mousaka and lemon seasoned chicken. The homemade French fries cooked in olive oil are very nice.

Very cute restaurant with delicious food. We had the chicken panellinio. It was stuffed with ham,mushrooms,peppers,and cheese. It was terrific! We also ordered the chicken carbonara. It was very rich. Its not the traditional american version but very tasty. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

We asked the waiter for recommendations and everything he directed us to was great. We had the beef in tomato sauce, lamb in oven, and calamari. The beef and the lamb were both very tender. The food wasn't too heavy (which is perfect for lunch).

This place was very busy when I went there on a Tuesday during low period in Kalambaka Greece. Had calamari with tomato and cucumber salad and saganaki fried cheese. All was good quality and washed down with a Mythos beer. Bread was stale. All up 20 euros.

Restaurant-Taverna Panellinion was built in 1950 and its located in the City Hall central square of Kalambaka.
Its a familly buisness and is open all year long.
In winter we serve our home made traditonal dishes in a stone decorated warmy room and in summer we offer you our big shady square where customers can view the unique Meteora rocks next to the city fountain.
