4 out of 5 stars

Family-owned Taverna Cretekou opened in 1973 and has been keeping traditions alive in Old Town Alexandria ever since. Every Thursday night, expect live Greek music, dancing and plate-breaking. The white stucco walls of the dining room are brought to life by art from various regions of Greece and the menu is filled with classics. The most popular order is the Taverna Cretekou special, which allows diners to sample all the most well-known Greek dishes: moussaka, pastitsio, dolmades, soudsoukakia and spanakopita.
