The Peloponnese Restaurants

Lela's Taverna

Fodor's Review

Mrs. Lela, once housekeeper for author Patrick Leigh Fermor, is famous these days for her simple, old-fashioned cooking using fragrant homemade olive oil and exceedingly fresh tomatoes and herbs. Her taverna is an institution in these parts, and dinner beneath the trees on the seaside terrace of an oleander-covered stone house is a high point of a visit to the Mani. Chicken with rosemary, light moussaka, and fish soup are among the dishes that Lela and her grandson, Petros, prepare daily.
