Greek food and fun can always be found in this Old Town establishment. A whole meal, including hummus, a cocktail or beer, and a traditional Greek dish such as calamari or souvlaki, can be had for less than $15. Large groups seated inside the sidewalk cafe-type restaurant can make it crowded, and you need at least six people for a reservation. But not to worry, the full bar and fine service make the wait enjoyable. Next door is Berbati's Pan, a hot club for the younger set, with good live music and drinks.
