The host was incredibly personable, making us feel like part of his family. We arrived for lunch around 2 pm, which was perfect as it wasn't too busy on Mother's Day.

About the restaurant
For centuries, a taverna has been a neighborhood gathering place where friends can meet to eat, drink and enjoy life. Taverna co-founders Thanasis Pashalidis and Hakan Bala were raised with a shared ethical compass, which the Greeks call "philotimo" or "love of honor". Family and friends are their ingredients of life, and they believe that nutrition, happiness and health are all directly correlated. Both partners have been culturally influenced by the remedies of the old world and incorporate them into the lifestyle of Taverna. Both have an "ethos" that drives them and inspires others to live fully, which they consider the flavor of life's success. They understand that life is to be enjoyed and that time is of the essence. They are aware that every day is a gift.

Taverna has been created to make people happy and feel alive.

Food was good and tasty, but not necessarily authentic Mediterranean. Service was unclear who serves us, led to confusion

My husband and I are regular customers to Dio Deka. I have very high allergy to shellfish and I feel safe in this restaurant. The food is great and the atmosphere too. We like the grilled whole dorado and we order it almost every time. We also tried other foods and all are cooked to perfection. We usually ask for Athos to serve us and he is extremely kind and helpful. He is excellent! Everyone in the restaurant is very kind and helpful.

About the restaurant
Demitri’s Taverna offers authentic Greek food in an atmosphere filled with laughter and positive energy. Sit out on the patio and people watch while enjoying a special chargrilled lamb burger on sourdough bun served with arugula, tomatoes, baked red onions and feta cheese. Heat lamps make the patio enjoyable year round. Choose to stay indoors and dine on the charbroiled breast of chicken gyro pasta dish or the chicken and sausage Mediterranean pasta served with a house Mediterranean salsa. Demitri’s Taverna has several appetizers that can be enjoyed before a meal or with drinks like the flamed saganaki, yaiyai’s sloppy fries or the baked feta garlic bread topped with melted parmesan. Finish the meal at Demitri’s Taverna with an authentic dessert such as the pikilia epthorpia, kataifi pastry roll or the traditional Greek yogurt served with caramelized nuts covered in Greek honey.

What a gem right off the main drag in Cotati! We were transformed to Greece for the night. Food was flavorful and well presented, and the service was fast. They were able to make a few dishes vegan-friendly. Kudos for having kunefe on the menu for dessert. The coffee and iced tea were delicious as well. Wonderful service by Viviana. We’ll be back!

About the restaurant
Hospitality in ancient Greece is a timeless tradition deeply woven into the fabric of its culture. In the Mediterranean, a region historically known as a melting pot of diverse cultures and cuisines, this spirit of hospitality was not only a virtue but a sacred duty. From the early times of city-states to the present day, the people of Greece have welcomed weary travelers as if they were guests from the gods themselves. This tradition is a testament to the enduring values of generosity, kindness, and warmth that have characterized Greek society for millennia. Whether it’s a simple offering of food and shelter or the sharing of stories and experiences, the essence of Greek hospitality remains as vibrant and essential today as it was in the days of Homer’s epic tales. It is a legacy that continues to enrich the lives of both locals and visitors, forging connections and creating lasting memories in a land where hospitality is a timeless tradition. Come and joins us.

This is the best restaurant I’ve eaten at in a long time. The ambience is so special you feel like you have been transported to Greece. It’s beautiful interior, not to loud Greek music, and superior service make this my #1 restaurant now. The food, wine, craft cocktails and dessert are all winners. Love.
