Fodor's Review

Whitewashed stucco walls and colorful macramé tapestries bring a bit of the Mediterranean to the center of Old Town. On the menu are exohikon (lamb baked in a pastry shell) and fish sauteed with artichokes, and the extensive wine list includes only Greek choices, such as the special Taverna Cretekou made near Kalamata. In warm weather you can dine in the canopied garden. Thursday evenings bring live music, and if you are so moved, plates for breaking are free for

the asking—opa! A buffet brunch is served on Sunday.
