The Story

Award-winning Australian writer/director Alkinos Tsilimidos’ irreverent comedy, The Taverna, follows one utterly calamitous evening within the confines of a Greek restaurant in Melbourne. 

The taverna’s owner, Kostas gets more than he bargained for when popular belly dancer, Jamila is replaced by his waitress. Matters are complicated further by a kidnapping, a scooter accident and a family cover-up. 

Throw a sleazy customer who doesn’t know his limits into the mix – along with Jamila’s ex-husband, his new girlfriend; and the well-meaning chef – and Kostas’ nightmare becomes a darkly comic ride into the wild side of life, love, food and cultural difference.
