Ta Gefyria Taverna


With such a concentration of places in town it's almost a relief to escape the hustle and bustle of the port to reach this

tranquil taverna 'Ta Gefyria' for a traditional Greek lunch or dinner. In fact, with so many of the places to eat on Hydra aiming for up-market international paletes, Gefyria is one of the few Greek tavernas on Hydra still cooking authentic dishes. Well worth the visit!


You'll find this oasis of calm at the end of the broad, pine shaded road that leads out of the harbour. It's only a 3 minute walk but you'll discover a different side of Hydra. A gentler pace, less hurried, a countryside feel without a hike! Better still there are no steps to climb from the town either other then three up from the street.

Giorgos Tsigkos and his friendly staff offer delicious traditional dishes of the day to tempt. Try Stuffed Aubergine, Chicken in Lemon Sauce, Marinaded Fish or Spiced Meat Stuffed with Egg. And of course the menu has all the traditional Greek taverna favourites. Our local prices will be a nice surprise for you too!

Leave the port at the Alpha Bank corner. At the Amalour Bar walk down the left fork down a straight narrow lane, passing Antonis' hardware shop on your left. After about 50 meters follow the lane round a right-angle turn, then immediately left onto Gikas Kolouros Street. Now walk for about 100 meters along this broad pine edged road. You will pass the Phaedra Hotel on your right. Keep going straight. You will find us on your right just before the small bridge that the taverna is named for. (Gefyria means bridge.)
