Fodor's Review

The winter dining room maintains its prewar ambience ("since 1926") and is insulated with huge wine casks; in summer there is garden seating in a courtyard across the street (get there early so you don't end up at the noisy sidewalk tables). The classic Greek cuisine is well prepared, including pungent tirokafteri (a peppery cheese dip), bekri mezes (lamb chunks in zesty red sauce), lamb ribs (when in season), stamnaki (beef baked in a clay pot), and melt-in-the-mouth meatballs, the taverna's specialty.
