If you are looking for a cozy, traditional restaurant apart from the typical tourist centers in Berlin, the Taverna Ousia in Schöneberg is just right for you. In the Greek restaurant with its stone floors, yellow walls, wooden chairs and green and white tablecloths, guests meet in a cheerful atmosphere to enjoy traditional dishes. In Greece, too, there is a tapas-like form of cuisine - called Mezedes or Orektika. The cozy Taverna Ousia specializes in mezedes.
Cold mezedes here are Zatziki, Fawa (cooked pea peas), Patzaria (beetroot with garlic mashed potatoes) or Halloumi. Warm mezedes come "with meat", "from the sea", "with cheese" or "grilled". They offer Arnisia Tigania, roasted rack of lamb with dried tomatoes, peppers and onions in red wine sauce, Chirini Tigania, roasted pork cubes or Keftedakia Sharas, grilled meatballs. The Greek classics Mousakas (greek casserole) and Souvlaki (meat skewers) are also on the menu. Dishes from Neptune's empire are calamari, shrimp and octopus. “With cheese“ come eggplants, puff pastry and courgette balls. The fish and seafood are all from Greece.
The Greek desserts are sweet and substantial as usual. Guests can choose between Greek pancake balls with honey and cinnamon, puff pastry with vanilla cream and vanilla ice cream and the obligatory Greek cream yoghurt with honey and walnuts. With delicious Greek wines, Ouzo and Metaxa, you can spend a hearty and tasty evening here, reminding visitors of their last summer holiday in Greece.
