Dinner time while in Greece?

Dinner (Vradino in Greek).
Greeks eat really late when they are on vacation like after 8 o’clock at night and the tavernas can be full until 23:30 or later! If you go to a restaurant before 9 pm, most likely it will be empty.

While the Greeks are having their dinner, it is still good to be around and enjoy the magical Greek evening atmosphere and probably have a drink; again beating the Greeks to the bars.
