Restaurant | Greek
There's braised octopus for breakfast, lamb tongue for lunch and whole fish for dinner. The pita's warm, the ouzo's cold and Bacchus is doing a brisk business in the bar. Greek? You bet. But Lola-the hot new restaurant adjacent the Hotel Ändra — is not your papou's taverna. This is Greek food Tom Douglas style. Here, high-quality ingredients, straightforward preparations and deceptively simple flavors translate into Mediterranean magic, offering a rousing riff on Greek cuisine. Expect great food, casual sophistication and a savvy crew schooled in the fine art of treating you right. Sharing is encouraged, as is feasting on classic spreads and meze (tzatziki, skordalia, Greek salad, dolmades) and sublime kebabs (chermoula-spiked squid, smoky; lemon-stoked mushrooms; honey-laved chicken). Exotic-scented tagines feature roasted goat with shallots and dates and saffron-kissed seafood. Miss out on the meaty lamb burger, bursting with honest lamb flavor and accompanied by pillowy logs of semolina-crusted chickpea fries — and you'll really be missing out. Note: lunch is a steal, the bar serves late-night noshes and the decibel-count can verge on atrocious. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
