By creating this site, we try to get closer to the people who are visiting/ having holidays in Greece, wherever they are from, specially to the tourists which have chosen thassos island, potos region, where our tavern is located.
"Taverna Irene", was opened in the year 2000 by Kostas Melissopoulos which is the owner until now.You will find him always working side by side with his employees, asking if you need something else, answering your needs the best he can. Due to his experience and his extraordinary team, you will be welcomed in a warm and familiar atmosphere, where you will have the chance to serve the best food for all the tastes(vegetarians included), drink the house wines or the traditional drinks "ouzo" or "tipouro", homemade or from different regions of Greece.
Located on the seaside, we invite you to taste the seafood(shrimps, calamari, mussels, octopus), fresh fish(kostas is also a fisherman), or the incredible seafood&fish plates for two persons , named MIX FISH.
