Tara's is a Stillwater classic, an old favourite and always busy. It is rather noisy, a little less so in the back room. However it has great atmosphere, and terrific food. The grilled octopus is perfectly cooked and a wonderful appetizer. I've usually have the same salad each time I go back - pear, Gorgonzola, greens, pecans. It's very good. Also, the grilled fish is superb, but if you want it fully cooked as opposed to seared, make sure you let them know when you order. Some of the dishes are very large, perhaps they could be shared: the Greek platter is a good example. The Pasta Adriatica, with shrimp, is large and delicious. I haven't had dessert there as I never have room for it. I would recommend this place. Just be sure to plan on a bit of extra time as there may be a wait for a table. I was there on a Saturday at around 8, and I waited about a half an hour. On previous occasions I've gone earlier, like 5.00, and that's usually quieter. The restaurants customers are all ages, and there are a few families with children too. It's a welcoming place and equally good as a venue for celebrating a birthday, or a romantic anniversary. Be aware though, it can be pretty noisy.
