Friendly owner and host Kypriotakis boasts of his oven-ready dishes like lamb in lemon sauce, and pastitsio (layers of buttery macaroni and seasoned minced lamb) made 'in the old Greek way' at this welcoming eatery on the square.
In keeping with its history, Thiva has an impressive Archaeological Museum documenting its place in Greek history and mythology. However, the museum is closed for renovations and not scheduled to reopen until 2009. The collection includes tablets of Linear B script and jewellery found in the Mycenaean palaces, along with terracotta masks and decorated sarcophagi, unique to mainland Greece.
