Mariketty, with her larger than life personality, creates a homely atmosphere found in most Greek houses – this open-air taverna features ornaments designed by her. A charismatic place, where one could spend an entire day with family and friends. With a quintessential white theme, terrazzo flooring and rustic wooden shelters the simplicity enchants one the minute they enter. Try the 'Tzatziki' dip and the 'Tiro Kaf Teri' – a spicy feta cheese dip with Pita bread. For the pescatarian, the 'Steamed Mussels In Ouzo Sauce' is a must-try.

From homemade Greek yoghurt to rich cheesecakes, everything served here is delectable. Do try the 'Cream Berry' or 'Blueberry' yoghurt smoothies.
