A number of restaurants are offering takeaway service during COVID. We've visited Taverna occasionally and love the place, food and staff, so thought takeaway may be hard to replicate, in fact, may not help their fine reputation. Not the case. Our lamb roast feast was excellent! It was ready on time, very well presented and to the standard we've come to know. The lamb was magnificent, we opted for pumpkin with beetroot jus and salad. A sourdough, oil and salt dip was a great starter, and a complimentary baklava was offered...and enjoyed. The meal actually provided 4 meals! We shouldn't have worried.....

We chose Taverna's to cater for our executive teams dinner. We highly recommend this beautiful restaurant in Kingscliff.
The shared plates are generous with mouth watering seafood, haloumi cheese, slow cooked lamb shoulder, sour dough breads, dips & salads. Every dish was full of flavour! The wine list provided enough choice, and we never ran out of still / mineral water. The staff provided excellent service. Gilmour Space Technologies

Had dinner here tonight with my husband for his birthday. Place was very welcoming and attractive and staff were friendly. However I was disappointed with the food overall. Portions were very very small. Sardines from small plate menu were tiny and soft and not tasty at all and not as I expected from a Greek restaurant
Swordfish was also soft and not a nice texture. Seemed like it had stood on the bench too long before service. It was Served on one or two strips of cold carrot and zucchini and two tiny cold tomatoes and side of Brussel sprouts drowned in oil sadly
The Bread and olive oil was lovely. Bugs were nice and sweet but so small. I was so excited to go to this restaurant so it was a shame it wasn’t that great. They also had booked in a huge group tour for dinner at the same time as us and the noise and lack of space was too much and too crowded. I wish we had known about the large group booking before we booked

Great experience, service was excellent. Dinner was very nice. Complimentary sourdough bread with olive oil was appreciated. Thank you. The menu appeals to most tastes I think
We enjoyed a cocktail, meal, wine and atmosphere.
First visit here and will return
Next time we will probably share some of the small meals to try that option too
Recommend it
