Travolta
Travolta

Travolta is a fish tavern that fully respects itself and its visitors in Peristeri. Spyros and Vangelis Liakos along with Anestis Lazai bring the sea to your plate.
The old "Travolta" of the dancer, Lakis Lambropoulos, was the most popular fish tavern of the city. Lakis’s fresh fish as well as his friendliness and hospitality will bring the entire Athens to "Travolta": rich and poor, 365 days a year. The great dancer took care of Anestis Lazai that came to Athens when he was 12 years old without knowing anyone -everyone will then treat him now as his son. After Lakis death, Anestis, who for over 25 years had been learning the secrets of fish in "Travolta" will "move" to the adjacent courtyard.

Anestis, with deep knowledge and being the best cook, meets Spyros and Vangelis Liakos and in February 2012, they decide to take on the tradition of the famous "Travolta". Nothing will be fixed or absolute, given and mainstream. The unique and inviolable condition will concern only the fresh fish –two boats go at sea exclusively for them.

The recipes, the matchings and the surprises in taste will no longer form a continuous challenge. The game had started and had many twists and a great deal of experimentation. Why should spetzofai be done only with sausage and not with cuttlefish sausage and a great, rare Gruyere cheese, to accompany the orzo pasta with squid ink to form a unique, unexpected dish? The quality of the raw ingredients, here, is not limited not only to fish, but to everything. According to Anestis, Spyros and Vangelis, nothing that is not the best in the market comes on the plate.
