Greece debt: Restaurants to feel the pinch from VAT rise

Greek banks are set to reopen, with controls, after three weeks of closures sparked by the deadlock over the country's debt.

From Monday, the daily limit becomes a weekly one, capped at €420 (£291), meaning Greeks will not have to queue every day.

They will also pay more on a range of goods and services, including taxis and restaurants, with VAT rising from 13% to 23%.

The BBC's Mark Lowen reports from a traditional taverna in Greece on the likely impact.
