Great food, with a wide selection of salads/starters/meats and cooked dishes. Specialty includes snails in a tomatoe cumin sauce, cheese dip called "geremezi". Prices are on the high end.

We had snails, stuffed zucchini, and rooster in red sauce, and it was so good, we overate despite being on a diet. My favourite was the stuffed zucchini: the lemon roux worked wonders to lighten the dish, and served as a Je ne sais quoi...More

A place located in the woods, just across the veggie farm that supplies the tavern. Delicious home made food, excellent service, memorable specialties!

Whenever we visit Aegina, Vakchos is a very beloved place to have lunch. Quiet, traditional greek cuisine, large portions, friendly staff and good prices guarantee a good choice. Rather old-fashioned (in a good way) travels you back in time of tasty greek cuisine.
