Theo’s Taverna: An Authentic Greek Restaurant in Hermanus

If you’re looking for a slice of the Greek Islands in the heart of Hermanus, Theo’s Taverna is your best bet. From the moment you step through the door, you’re greeted with cobalt-drenched décor, bougainvillaea-festooned pergolas, and blue-checked tablecloths in the shaded courtyard. The whitewashed walls adorned with a map of Greece and old photos create a charming backdrop for the classic menu of authentic Greek cuisine.

Owners and Menu of Theo’s Taverna

Theo and Claudelle Stathoulis, the owners, have made an oasis of Greek food tradition that supports local vendors and serves people from Hermanus. On the menu, there is a list of simple Greek words and phrases. For example, “kalimera” means “good morning.” This will put you in the mood for a Mediterranean vacation while you choose from classic starts like dolmades, spanakopita, and keftedes. Then, there’s pita with tzatziki and taramasalata, souvlaki skewers of pork, lamb, chicken, or rump steak, yiros, and a tempting range of Greek-style grills and seafood mains, not to mention the meatless moussaka.

Classic syrup-soaked sweets like baklava, kataifi, and loukoumades are the main treats for people with a sweet taste. Or you could have a simple bowl of Greek yogurt with honey and nuts on top. Regarding drinks, you can choose from a list of Hemel-en-Aarde Valley stars like Creation, Benguela Cove, Hermanuspietersfontein, and Suiderkunz. Folk & Goode and the Hermanus Brewing Company both make beers.

The atmosphere is vibey and welcoming, and it feels like you’re dining in a Taverna in Greece. It’s already a hit with locals, so it’s best to book a week in advance.
