Dafni Taverna, conveniently located in the heart of Times Square and the theatre district, provides a dining experience reminiscent of a small village in Greece.  The atmosphere is warm and inviting, from the beamed ceiling to the wood plank floor, from the exposed brick wall to the soft Greek music playing in the background.


Guests enjoy the hospitality and fine home cooking that the country is famous for. The restaurant serves authentic Greek cuisine, prepared simply and deliciously, using only the freshest and purest ingredients.  The menu starts with a large selection of hot and cold meze, and an array of classic salads, as well as a few innovations.  Entrees include many of the traditional dishes, a selection of charcoal-grilled meats and fish, and a few intriguing additions, such as grilled quail on a bed of spinach, and braised lamb shank with hilopites (a type of pasta).  The meatless moussaka and the hortopita (a pie stuffed with greens, herbs and feta) are hearty, creative vegetarian fare.  Delicious, homemade baklava, galaktoboureko and rice pudding are prepared fresh daily in our kitchen.


The management team includes George Andriotis, with close to thirty years ownership experience in American and Mediterranean restaurants in Manhattan and Long Island.



An exclusively Greek wine list complements Dafnis menu, featuring wines from every major wine-producing region in Greece.   Most wines are available either by the bottle or by the glass.
