Taverna Costa Navarino

We were here for dinner the very last evening of our 4-night stay at the Westin Resort Costa Navarino and the Taverna Costa Navarino was another great choice.  It is the unique spot where residents can enjoy authentic Greek flavours in a casual quality dining concept.

‘Tyrokafteri’ –spicy and super yummy cheese spread, the grilled octopus with Fava beans salad from Santorini, both finger licking good! Talagani with grilled mushrooms from Taygetos Mountain. We would ask for Talagani in almost every restaurant. I bet you will love it. It is worth giving it a try.

Crunchy Fried Potatoes topped with the Greek Feta cheese. Every dish was mouthwatering and every bite exploding with flavour and taste!

Main course

For the main course we had the catch of the day accompanied by grilled vegetables. It had some of the perfect texture and taste I could ever dream of! Scrumptious, with a nice appealing presentation…get ready for a taste of heaven!


We were spoiled for choice with dessert. Out of the list, we had them all and tastes were exceptional. Big thumbs up!

From “Diples” Deep fried dough with fig sorbet, walnuts and honeycomb, to “Groustillant with praline and Fleur de sel” Cremeux with spices and caramel sauce, to Grandma Katerina’s  Walnut cake accompanied with Kaimaki ice-cream.

“Greek Yoghurt” -Greek strained yoghurt with homemade spoon sweets and finally a variety of seasonal Fruits (for 2 persons) matured & freshly-sliced. What an inventive, colourful and outstanding presentation that was!
