Mavrommatis Restaurant Review

: The so-called Greek restaurants concentrated in the rue de la Huchette in the Latin Quarter are to be avoided. The real Greek savour is to be found at Mavrommátis, the best Greek table of Paris if not of Europe. Laurel leaves add the Hellenic touch to the squids in white wine and thyme perfumes the roasted quails wrapped in vine leaves as well as many other preparations of Andreas Mavrommátis, who hails from Cyprus. On this Mediterranean island they love the “confit” piglet roasted in a blazing oven, the panned pork filet mignon with red wine and coriander, the swordfish in an eggplant fondue, the skewered lamb and, of course, the glorious and traditional moussaka. Some decent Greek red wines such as a Syrah from Thrace and exceptional whites from the island of Santorini accompany in style this cuisine that found its roots in our most antique civilized culture. Don’t overlook the interesting prix-fixe at €35.
