Agora Restaurant North Fort Myers

We had a lovely meal last night at Agora. Walking into the restaurant it feels a little like you are in the greek isles and have found a nice taverna. The owner was very much in evidence throughout the evening and our server was a very personable and capable young man.

We ordered an excellent bottle of pinot grigio that was well priced for a restaurant at $30. The list was small but well chosen. They had some Argentinian wines as well: malbec and torrontes.

We had the spanakopita which was the best I've ever tasted. Very light with fresh spinach, dill and feta on an exceptionally light phyllo crust.

My husband had a grilled veal chop that was served with a skewer of grilled shrimp. All marinated in a very tasty sauce. I had Swai, a pacific grouper which was simply outstanding. Also the greek green beans. Both came with a side Greek Salad, very lightly dressed and very crisp.

We will definitely return. The restaurant is in Marinatown on the river in North Fort Myers and is joined with a Irish tavern which was very well decorated and looks like a lot of fun. The owner of Agora said he inherited the Irish Pub when he took over the space. We will go back there sometime soon. Let's give these two places our support. Good greek food is hard to come by here in SW Florida. LMf
