The heart of Vafis is unique and keeps all guests in there,
he cares for them, he feeds them!

The village's hangout
A THOUSAND WELCOMES AT VAFIS' TAVERN, WHOEVER COMES ONCE MAY COME AGAIN.
Our daily goal is that our customers leave completely satisfied both with food and prices and that our tavern will become their favorite hangout place and their friends' too.
