 Restaurant-Taverna for sale or rent
Taka-taka, founded in 1970, is perhaps the best-known taverna-restaurant in Paxos, the capital of Gaios. Gaios is a charming port town and spreads itself along the waterfront.

It is perhaps by no chance that it received a very favourable review in BBC television, some years ago (a VHS copy of the review is available upon request)..
