Satisfied that craving

We were on vacation and this was close to our hotel. It's a family restaurant and a lot of it seemed home made. The waiter was good and quick, not too much small talk. The meat was tender, cut it with my fork. The food was very fast. Kids selections were good. A bit pricey at 70$ for 2 adults... read more

We love Greek food so this was our choice of restaurants last year & we came back to try it out again tonight. The food was great, as was the service. They do their best to cater to dietary needs. Foods that are gluten free, vegetarian, or vegan are marked on the menu. One member of our party has a... More

This was my first visit in a while, and not much has changed since my last visits. The food is very good - I had the Tiropita plate, a pastry cheese pie with sides of rice, salad, and potato. It was delicious. Others with me had a lamb souvlaki plate and a stuffed chicken breast plate and both were happy... More

The food is rather poorly made, overcooked and not really true to the Greek tradition. When I think good Greek food I think freshness and this restaurant doesn't really nail that one. Very expensive for what it is too. Service is fine, atmosphere is a little claustrophobic but otherwise casual.

My wife and I ate here during our Eastern Canada trip. The Kleftiko that my wife had and the lamb souvlaki that I had were both very good.

The restaurant clams to make everything from scratch and use local ingredients, but it sure didn't taste like one. Our breakfast was very average. We ordered an omelette and eggs Benedict. The omlette was greasy and my eggs Benedict arrived to the table cold. I was offered a new serving, but did not have the time to wait. When the... More

We came here as a family for dinner on a weekend recently. It was not busy (maybe 2 or 3 tables) and we waited 10 minutes at the door before being acknowledged by the staff. Once seated, our server was good (forget his name) and the food was better than I had expected. I have had Greek at a few... More

Stopped here for breakfast and it was very good. Home cooked meals with fresh ingredients. The service was very friendly. We will be back.

Great food and friendly service. Portions are adequate for the prize and the salads are fresh. one suggestion would be for the pita served, to be grilled and brushed with olive oil. as it is served, it comes off stale

We so enjoy coming to Athens, the food never disappoints. Great flavors, presentation and the staff is very welcoming. It feels like you are at home, lots of families and great conversations and laughter going on. Our favorite is the chicken souvlakia dinner, very good and great prices. We always get three or four appetizers for the hole table to... More
