The top hotels offer local and international food, often at good prices; large buffets are especially popular. Meals in local restaurants or tavernas usually start with a selection of mezes (appetizers), followed by kebabs, dolmas, stews, fresh fish, and various lamb dishes. Meals end with fruit or honey pastries and Greek coffee. In addition, most places serve sweet Commandaria, the world's oldest named wine. By law, all establishments must display a menu with government-approved prices, which usually includes a 10% service charge and always includes the 8% Value-Added Tax. Food prices are relatively reasonable compared to other European countries, and the quality is generally very good.
