Dio Modern Mediterranean

Dio Modern Mediterranean in downtown Tampa is a poppin’ place to be. Not only is their Greek food outstanding, but the experience is such a blast here. They have live entertainment with dancers and a DJ! You should definitely go here if you’re looking for a lively night out on the weekend! During the week, however, it’s more chill and you can enjoy a relaxed dinner with hookah and refreshing cocktails. 

The food at Dio Modern Mediterranean is incredible. From juicy lamb chops to healthy and fresh hummus bowls. You’ll always have something delicious in front of you! We highly recommend the spanakopita, garlic feta app, paired with their famous red sangria.

Skidder's Restaurant

Located in St. Pete Beach, Skidder’s Restaurant is a charming family-restaurant serving Greek, Italian, and American dishes alike. Their menu is huge, so you have plenty of options, but we especially recommend starting with a refreshing Greek Salad and enjoying the souvlaki for your main dish. You can also usually get the staff to do a shot of ouzo with you which is always a fun time for everyone!

After your meal at Skidder’s be sure to walk over to the beach to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
