“Great Views and food” We went here for my birthday lunch and it was excellent. A great selection of food and on tap draft beers. Awesome seafood and authentic Greek cuisine. I recommend the fried Grouper. We sat in the back of the restaurant right along the water line it’s almost like you’re right there eating on the water. Gorgeous Floor to ceiling windows
We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary here to wrap up a week of our first vacation alone since kids (…24 years or so). We are house sitting for a friend (I know! Life is so hard). Many restaurants are closed on Mondays. We were hanging out with friends, and got a late start. There were severe storm warnings out. Yet, we headed to Dimitri’s almost by default and because of the reviews. You know that reviews can be fickle: please trust a couple of extreme foodies in the restaurant business. Dmitri’s is a must visit and a definite 5 star. We were late, the restaurant was almost empty, we were warmly welcomed and treated like regulars or even better family or friends. We ate inside with a view of the docks because of the storm. The food was absolutely phenomenal. We opened with bread and dipping sauce. Yum. We got feta and calamata olives. Yum. My husband ordered the grilled whole fish (sea bass). OH WOW! Fresh, clean, simple. Perfect. Our server filleted it for him (professionally, but gave us the bone choke disclaimer 🙂 ) That bit of service and the demonstration/show was educational and decadent. The fish was served with beautiful tomato slices and lemon. I had the octopus stifado, a complex stew of tomatoes and onions and olives and beautiful, tender octopus (cut it with a fork). I am so happy to say that I have leftovers to enjoy. We wrapped up dinner with Greek coffee and a slice of baklava. The baklava was fine (good, cinnamony, but I have had phenomenal versions from Egyptian, Jordanian, and Greek mom family “recipes” that never exist except in genetics) . The coffee was spot on excellent. I didn’t have wine, but all the wines are house only and blended only for them. Do I recommend? Yes! I have friends here and family friends. I am firing texts to them! I am here another week and Dmitri’s is on my selfish return list. My poor friend has a permanent house sitter. Would I go back? OH HECK YEAH. I am here for another week and will definitely return.
Dimitri’s is fabulous! We went with a party of 5 and immediately loved the fun relaxed vibe of the place. Best Greek salad I’ve ever had! I had a lamb dish that fell off the bone. Others had lemon chicken with artichokes and moussaka. During the fun evening, Dimitri came in and asked us all to go out onto the dock to feed the fish. Great chunks of bread were thrown into the water as hundreds of fish fought over the bread. Great place for families and excellent Greek food!
“exochos” Rum Runners, excellent. Saganaki, Hummous, Spanakopita, Calamari, excellent. Kokkinisto Lamb, Bone-in Rib Eye, Scallops, Village Salad, excellent. We travel 17 miles to Dimitri’s and have dined here many times, the atmosphere and friendliness of staff keeps us returning. Our server “Woody” was attentive and made our visit enjoyable. The food quality is top of the line and never disappoints. Many of their large parties are returning patrons for a special evening, this speaks well of their food consistency and authentic flavors. This is my favorite go to Restaurant in Tarpon Springs, we will definitely be returning with friends.
