This new movement is based on the traditional cuisines of several Mediterranean areas in the European continent such as Greece and for the most part, the island of Crete, some Middle East countries, the south of France and the south of Italy, Portugal and Spain. The most authentic Mediterranean cuisine can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere: dining out in the most exquisite restaurants at the same time as watching the sunset from charming views to the Mediterranean Sea; or having the best experience learning the Tavern’s culture while enjoying traditional home cooked food.
