The Greek way of eating is SLOW.  You should enjoy the experience of a meal with friends or family.  Sometimes, particularly in UK restaurants, you can feel the “eat-up quickly we have other customers who need that table” atmosphere.  Not in Greece.


A meal out is a special occasion and one to take your time over.  Children are extremely well catered for.  Just about every restaurant has a children’s menu and children are notoriously loved by the Greeks.  It’s not unusual to see a whole table set out especially for the young ones - and all from different families.  Having children running around enjoying themselves is totally acceptable, in fact it is welcomed in Greece.  It is not unusual for a Greek family to go to dinner at 11PM and not leave the restaurant until the early hours.


Do not expect fast-food service in restaurants—just good service.  This is Greece and the pace is slow.  Sit down, relax and enjoy the good food and good company.  Tipping is not compulsory but is expected if you are happy with the service—a maximum of 10% of the bill total is a guide.
