you would have had to be there in the late sixties and early seventies
to understand the charm of takis and dimitris g. in days of youth
hostels and backpacks, takis was a more authentic representation of
greek tavernas. i can understand how folks would not find it as
comfortable now, but in the early seventies, you found the most
interesting people from everywhere at takis. one night i remember
dyann cannon, cary grant's wife, dancing with all the boys at takis.
famous american artist, jon pearson of san francisco, was a regular
and did portraits of various hotel and restaurant patrons in the
eating area. stan nettles, the british blues man was also an
inhabitant at takis. i would leave most of my gear with dimitris
while i took side trips to athens, istanbul, rhodes or cyprus. he
was a great friend and helped all travellers. it was a simpler time
and a hot tub was not as important as the interesting folks you would
run into at a place like takis.
Dinah Haggerty wanted to know the phone number and e-mail address of Takis' Restaurant (or Takis' Taverna), which has rooms to let as well as a restaurant, in Kontokali, Corfu. I have the answer!
