The authentic culinary experience of Lesvos since 1987. The story of "Taverna Vafios" started with endless love for traditional family recipes. So, the thought of our grandmother's delicious dishes -all authentic recipes of old times- being lost in time, gave us the idea to create not just a typical traditional taverna but a culinary destination. So in 1987, Vafios, a small village in Lesvos began to slowly appear on the gastronomic map until it became famous for its authentic traditional delicacies and the "Oh, so well cooked!" local recipes! In our family farm, surrounded by all that is fresh and green, one can taste true tradition. Picture this. You are relaxed, sitting in a colorful garden, your table is right under an old olive tree, the view of the Aegean Sea and the picturesque village of Molyvos decorates the horizon with the sun setting majestically into the sea. Truly, a unique atmosphere that no other place can imitate.
