We loved our lunch here on a lazy Wednesday afternoon. Great views from the dining room indoors or out on one of two terraces overlooking the valley. A simple menu with classics like amazing tzaziki and delicious sausages. A word of advice: the mountain greens...More

Great family restaurant, been there in 2015 and 2017. We tried the goat, the rabbit and the lamb, they're all really good, the kids were crazy 'bout it too. Nice atmosphere, fantastic view. We'll come back another time. :-)

Emilia's tavern is located at Zourva, a little further than Therissos. Location accessibility is the only thing that can be accounted as a "negative". The family of Mr. Niko's runs a really impressive tavern with a variety of plates - all perfect. We have visited...More

Emilia's is very hard to find as its out of the way, but the views are outstanding. The food is good but the portions are very small. We went (four adults and three kids) and in comparison to two years ago the portions have considerable...More
