Visited this taverna in one Friday evening of September.
We heard about this place from a friend of ours. She has been here 2 or 3 times and she liked it. When I saw a discount coupon, we planned to go there together, but eventually she left for another country and only GH and I made it.
It is a huge taverna with tables outside and inside. It was all the more evident, as we were the only customers almost until the end of our meal, when a man came in and sat down.
Again, I tell you it was a Friday evening!
Mavromatis is famous for grill, but it has also oven cooked food (mageirefta).
Here are mixed salad, aubergine imam and tyrokafteri.
Imam was pretty good, as the one I cooked at home following classic recipe.
On the other hand, the salad was rather dismal. If it was 4 Euro, it would have been OK, but it wasn't.
I do not recall how was the tyrokafteri. I only remember that I thought it was not memorable. Ha ha ha.
Fried potatoes were a bit too crunchy. Or too raw, should I say?
This is chicen exhohiko, recommended by our waiter. These were boned chicken thighs with feta and green pepper filling. I am not keen on this way of cooking, but it was nicely executed.
I liked these veal burgers, except for some hard bits (but not as hard as fragmented bone, which sometimes endanger my teeth).
These are the famous chicken paidakia for 1 kilo (15 Euro).
These should be chicken breast on bones. Although they were enjoyable, I did not think they were so special that I should come back.
I am not quite sure how much they cost, as we had vouchers for 4 people and ordered much more than what we could eat. However, my impression is that they should adjust the price maybe 10% downward, considering now there are so many competitors that are offering better price.
