If you find yourself by the beach and have a hankering for Mediterranean food, then Taverna Tony is perfect hidden gem you’re looking for. Nestled away in the Cross Creek Plaza on PCH, this restaurant has been a local favorite for many years.

The restaurant is dived into 4 sections, with 2 interior dining areas, a bar in the middle and a large exterior patio. The patio is always the recommended place to dine, especially on gorgeous sunny Sundays.

The food speaks for itself, as the extensive menu features many traditional Mediterranean dishes. The complimentary Taramosalata Dip is one of our favorite foods anywhere, and one is often tempted to just eat that and the bread and call it a day. Other menu highlights include the lamb sandwich, shrimp pasta, grilled swordfish and the mousakka. The portions are sizable and hand made fresh each day, and the deserts are just as decadent as the main courses.

Some nights they have live performances by bands to liven up the atmosphere, but we don’t think you can beat dining on the patio on a cool Sunday afternoon. This eatery is also a known stop for the rich and famous, as Jason Statham and the King of Qatar are regulars. All in all, this is one of our favorite places in LA for a weekend meal, so be sure to pop in and introduce to Tony himself.
