Fodor's Review

This Greek taverna, grill, and meze café is the best of its kind in the city. Greek music floats above the buzz of conversation, a souvlaki spit turns slowly near the door, and a refrigerated case displays an array of meze (small appetizers). Most people sit on the roofed terrace or at the few street-side tables (in summer). Start with a meze platter of souvlaki, feta, olives, cucumber, and tomato, followed by the line fish, grilled on an open flame with olive oil and lemon, or kleftiko (lamb slow-cooked in a clay oven) and a carafe of wine. On weekend evenings, belly dancers perform between the tables, and Greek dancers do the Zorba to a backdrop of "controlled" plate breaking—all while patrons find it hard to resist a glass of ouzo. Even the manager is known to let his hair down and perform for the patrons once in a while. The dress is casual and the atmosphere very relaxed. Choose the set menus or the à la carte menu.
