Join David at the Initial Halt: Restaurant Meteora at the town of Kalambaka (also Composed Kalabaka and Kalampaka).

Four centuries and tens of thousands of clients after, Restaurant Meteora continues to be serving up generous portions of slow cooked casseroles, pies, stews, side dishes and much more… Another favourite place to eat in Meteora is Panellinio Restaurant (AKA Taberna Panellinio) in the middle square of Kalambaka. My favourite dish here was unquestionably the incredible lamb. The tzatziki was also amazing to say the very least. Besides the lamb, Panellinio offers specials of home cooked dishes that are appreciated beneath the shaded terrace.

This family-owned taverna is located in the small village of Diava, southwest of Kalambaka. Here David dined on a Greek specialty called kokoretsi (lamb innards wrapped in intestines). It’s a delicacy that takes a long time to prepare and is usually eaten during Easter. Meteoron Panorama is another incredible place to eat in Meteora. Known for its incredible vistas of Kalambaka, Meteoron Panorama’s claim to fame is its signature dish of veal, eggplant, and four cheeses baked in a clay pot. The fried zucchini balls are also excellent. Next stop on this amazing culinary journey through Meteora is Spitiki Gefsi in Kalambaka to try spanakopita (spinach pie) for breakfast. Kafe-Ouzeri Fortounis is another great must-try in Kalambaka because it’s not your typical restaurant. Here, you get a small plate of food for every glass of ouzo or tsipouro you order. Taverna to Paramithi is another great place to dine in Kalambaka. It’s a cozy place where people come to eat and enjoy traditional Greek music. A standout dish that David enjoyed here was the stuffed mushrooms. You can grab a seat inside out out, whichever you choose! Special thanks to Visit Meteora and XShot.
