An Old Port fixture since 1982, Tamam offers culinary revelations inspired by Greek traditions. Its menu features strictly homemade dishes, ranging from traditional cheese pie with honey, and continuing with crowd-pleasers like Greek salad, rusks with tomatoes and feta, tzatziki, and starters to share. For your main dish, choose something prepared in the oven: boneless lamb in tomato sauce served with yogurt and pita bread will satisfy your hunger and give you an idea about traditional Cretan cuisine. They also serve pasta, grilled meats, and seafood. The wine list doesn’t disappoint either.
Another interesting aspect of dining at Tamam is the location: the building housing the eatery dates from the 1400s when the Venetians built is as a public bathhouse. During the Turkish occupation, with some architectural alterations, the edifice became a hamam.
When you visit the restaurant, don’t be surprised if you catch a performance of sorts. They often host live music, theatre, art exhibitions, and other events.
