Annoying to find this high-ranking restaurant only to find that the place had moved to another location without telling TripAdvisor. Well, more walking equals better appetite. Good for us, and even better for Ouises. When we finally got to there, we found the place was happily crowded, people enjoying appearantly mouth-watering meals on all tables, a noisy but all-relaxed soundscape... More

I forgot that I was in Berlin. I thought that I was in some restaurant in Athens, on Monastiraki or in Plaka. The food was very good, the stuff friendly, the environment and the music perfect. I would like to go again.

We were served good traditional Greek cuisine in a cozy and authentic setting. This is undoubtedly a very popular place, so it is recommended to reserve a table in advance. Whether to point out something, so it was a bit cramped where we were seated - but the service, the great atmosphere and the food not least, ensured that this... More

Officially. The best Greek restaurant outside Greece. Excellent ambience. Beautiful menu. Good menu, helpful staff (Greeks themselves). In fact amongst the best choices outside Greece. Been to London, outside Greece. This is authentic, hearty Greek food and wine.

I am Greek and i can assure you that the food was like eating in a tavern in Greece.The quality was very good and the portions were exactly as much you needed.The personel was very friendly but a bit slow because the restaurant was totally full.It's preferable to make a reservation before you go there. :)

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
