But, as I haul my butt around this planet quite extensively, it can be hard to totally avoid such establishments. This time we went to Liz's for tea to Windsor. Unfortunately, she did not show up although we did see the royal standard billowing on top of the keep. Once we were done with sightseeing at the castle, we went to town to refill. Windsor is a pretty town and, blessed with royal-obsessed visitors, boasts quite a choice of places to eat. All of them, naturally, catering to mostly tourists. Such was our luck that we happened upon such. Latino Taverna, despite its name, is a Greek eatery. It is set in a picturesque location, on the cobbled slope of a curvy lane.
We went for a lunch choice of half meze, which at 11.95 a head included
- a wee bowl of taramasalata;
- a wee bowl of tzatziki;
- a wee bowl of potato salad;
- a wee bowl with a few olives;
- a wee bowl of melitzanosalata;
- a wee bowl of bean salad;
- a wee bowl of tabuleh.
- four deep-fried calamari rings;
- a wee sauce with mussels;
- a bowl of Greek salad;
- a grill platter: 2 loukanika pork sausages, 2 keftedes (spicy meat balls), 2 chicken breast skewers, two slices of haloumi cheese.
Lemon squash and soda was very nice: obviously home-made, it tasted like old-fashioned lemonade, refreshingly non-sweet.
Pro's: Great location basking in the sunshine around lunchtime.
Con's: Brisk service.
In a nutshell: Alright for a quick refuel in Windsor, if you don't mind your lunch taste like an in-flight meal.
