Fodor's Review

Whitewashed stucco walls and colorful macramé tapestries bring a bit of the Mediterranean to the center of Old Town. The menu takes diners on a trip around Greece—each dish identifies its region of origin. Favorites include 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 romantic 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.
