Why locals love it

Tamam has been there for ages without a single drop on the quality of the food. Very good, creative cuisine with eastern influences. The service is lovely and it is very reasonably priced (expect about €20 per person).

Why you should visit it

The Iranian risotto is a reason to visit itself! Located in one of the most picturesque streets (Zambeliou) of the old harbour you will enjoy a perfect meal. Open for both lunch and dinner. Tamam also offers a great selection of wines, with the house wine being a very popular choice.

Special tip

I would make a reservation, have a nice walk around and then end up there having a great lunch or dinner!

This was recommended to us by another local as well and it did not disappoint.

I have not eaten there and i am sure it is good (though i have no desire to eat here now) but an "Iranian risotto" Is an abomination which shows the chef neither knows what a risotto nor Iranian cuisine is. Fusion is supposed to be about conjugating cuisines but something of the origins has to renain for the origins of fusion to be meaningful. The point of Iranian rice is diffuseness and separateness of the grain. Rissotto? Puhleeze.
