( – Delphi, Greece

How I heard of this place: As we were making our way back to Hotel Varonos, ready to call it a night, we came across a window display of gelato. It took no time for Chris to make his way in and for us to place our orders!

Ambiance: Epikouros Restaurant-Taverna is located on the central street in the town of Delphi, known to locals as the “Navel of the Earth”. “We have created a friendly and romantic atmosphere. Savor lunch or dinner, while you enjoy a magical view of Gorge of Delphi, olive groves of Pleistos valley & Corinthian Gulf. Our ambiance, a harmony of stone and wood, add to your dinning pleasure. Our prices are competitive. We take pride in our service. As well, we are known locally for our house specialties and for our “Live Music nights”, especially at winter’s weekend. Our restaurant is ideal, not only for individual guests, but also for groups and group events.

When you dine at Epikouros Restaurant-Taverna, you can count on personal attention and a memorable real meal! Epikouros Taverna – Restaurant is located at 33.V. Pavlou & Friderikis str. in the center of Delphi, just close-by the Commercial Bank of Greece.”

Type of cuisine: The a la carte menu offers “fine Greek Cuisine, with a wide variety of dishes, all cooked to perfection.”

What I ordered: We came for ice cream, and ended up with a donut, “Gustard filled pastry” (€3.50)…and ice cream. Two scoops: Kaimaki and Caramel (€2 per scoop).

What I loved: The caramel ice cream was my favorite thing on our table. The combination of the sweet Kaimaki and light, chocolate-filled donut also brought smiles to our faces.

Why I loved it: What I loved most is the mini Greek flag on a toothpick that flew proudly atop our ice cream sundae, not unlike the cherry on top! I also love that Europeansalways serve a glass of water (or two) with any ice cream order. It’s very thoughtful and their foresight is unmatched!

Cost: Average (€2-€4 per dessert)
