must-try threesome..


a legendary mother figure from Mykonos island, an old grocery store and lots of frying pans! back in 1942 Margaro used to feed the port workers on her famous braised meat every Sunday. since then the traditional tavern has slightly been transformed. now offers the ultimate threesome! a naughty three dish menu lost in the mists of time.
