First Look: Zorba's Taverna in Delray Beach Serves Authentic Greek Fare

For an authentic taste of Greece, Palm Beach residents look no further than Zorba's Taverna, a new eatery now open in Delray Beach.

With decades' worth of combined experience, owners Bobby and father Taso Orfanos joined with restaurateur Bill Maxakoulis to open Zorba's last December. The trio is dedicated to serving "soul-satisfying" Greek dishes from expansive lunch and dinner menus filled with a variety of house-made favorites that focus on fresh ingredients, with many items imported from Greece.

"Our recipes have been handed down from many generations in both of our families," said Maxakoulis. "We serve the best Greek food on this side of the Atlantic."
