The Fat Greek Taverna in Worthing is the result of decades of traditional family Cypriot cooking integrated with European charm. All meals are being prepared using wood-fired ovens (and real charcoal rotisseries), which were built combining hundreds of years of family knowledge with modern volcanic materials.
It is also worth mentioning that their kitchens are on show so the customers can experience the Cypriot flavour, smell and sounds. The Fat Greek Taverna truly is…”From Cyprus with Love”.
