Culinaros Mediterranean Taverna Restaurant Review

: Located wharf-side and with life-size statues of Apollo and other Greek gods, as well as Greek music playing in the background, Culinaros Mediterranean Taverna can make one feel transported to a Greek isle. Share a family-style three-course meal starting with hummus, chunky tzatziki and baba ghanouj; rice-filled grape leaves; feta-stuffed roasted peppers and grilled portobello mushrooms with goat cheese; followed by grilled lamb chops fragrant with rosemary and honey-soaked baklava. The wine list emphasizes Greek wines. There's often a belly dancer, the owner chats and charms, and plates are broken nightly.
