About Dino’s Gyros Greek Café & Taverna

Greek Cooking for Gods CoverAbout the owners Dino and Edna Zane. Dino’s Gyros Greek Café & Taverna is family owned and run by Dino and Edna Zane and their son Nick. Dino has been in the restaurant business most of his life, working originally with his parents in San Francisco, and then in Los Angeles, before moving to San Diego. Edna was trained in Europe and has been a key collaborator in their restaurants.

Inspired by Dino’s mother Eva, whose cookbook, Greek Cooking for the Gods, provided many recipes to kickoff the Dino’s Gyros Café menu, Dino and Edna opened their restaurant in 1997. Dino’s Gyros Greek Café & Taverna offers fresh Greek specialty dishes, including many vegetarian and vegan items. Along with traditional favorites like gyros, kabobs, salads, and falafel, sample items you won’t necessarily find in other Greek restaurants, like moussaka, pastitsio, and Dino’s original Hercules burger.

You’ll find Dino’s conveniently located next to the Reading Theaters in Clairemont Town Square. Our friendly staff looks forward to welcoming you!

We love Dino’s. It is our go to place for a quick, yummy dinner on nights we don’t want to cook and before going to the show.

The people who work here are friendly and service oriented. Edna, the owner, is often there and always greets us like old friends.
