Ask to be seated upstairs on the roof. A very pleasant place to enjoy a leisurely meal. We started with the spicy feta spread and the house wine. My husband had the chicken platter and I had the chicken penne. We both were pleased.

A wonderful Brunch experience at this very charming restaurant. We sat on an upper floor terrace which enhanced the feeling of sitting among the tree tops and enjoyed a truly delicious Brunch. A very charming and attentive waitress whose recommendations were excellent.

Description
Taverna Agora is an authentic Greek kitchen & bar where friends & family enjoy good wine, eat wonderfully prepared, simple food and relax. The restaurant is reminiscent of gathering places found in Greece, with old world flavors and rustic roots. However, Taverna Agora expands beyond the traditional agora with a few modern flares, including hand-crafted cocktails, a gourmet marketplace and Sunday brunch.
