My Family, our staff and I would like to thank all of you who despite the difficult times made it to your favourite destination and met with us again. It was our honour to have you here as without you this season would have been lost completely.
Stay safe durring this difficult winter times, stay healthy so that we can see us again in 2021.
I promise that we will be open as soon as the circumstances allow some day in April 2021.
Welcome to our Taverna,
The Brouklis Grill Taverna is a small establishment in the center of Arillas. this restaurant is not located on the sea front but tucked away in a side street, its sign hidden by vines, grown not for the grapes but for the shade they provide.
Discerning guests don’t look at the menu but ask the waiter what he has today. Special delicacies are stifado , Spit roasted lamb, Bourdeto, Stuffed pork roll and zucchini balls the recipes, which have been passed down from generation to generation, are a closely kept secret.
All dishes prepared in our Taverna are made as if you would have had them in a local home. without any particular efforts to make the food look nice but using pure, local ingredients cooked in the way they have been cooked for the previous hundredths of years.
Snapshot for the menu:
"In our kitchen we do not use a microwave oven, nor stock cubes or other commercial ingredients."
"Our specialties are daily fresh prepared in a limited number of portions."
Our Taverna is open for good since 1st July 2020,
Every evening from 18:00 !
