Went there based on this sites reviews. Good food. Was not nearly as blown away as some of the reviewers. After spending a week between Greek islands, this place seemed to be just more of the same. Like I said, good not great.

Ok, this was about as close to perfect in Athens as we were able to find. Highly recommended by Greek Friends, Stamatopoulos lived up to every word. Amazing food, with great service - limited English, but enough to make it work - and "locals" who came over and spoke with us, a two-man band playing traditional music all located on... More

We came in October and still the veranda was open using several gas mushrooms to warm. The music was great , we loved the older Buzuki player , a girl from the visitor also sang two songs, 23 Turkish girls visitors danced so the atmoisphere was real - not the "tourist trap" kind at all. The food was quite good... More

This place had a very good go at doing everything right. The food, music and ambiance was all really enjoyable and we even had a little jig at the end. The staff (strange enough mostly Polish) were really nice and helpful too.

I had read about this restaurant so my husband and I checked it out. We arrived at 6:30pm and were the first ones to be seated. We ordered grilled vegetables and grilled eggplant with cheese as starters. Then we shared the mixed grilled seafood as the portions were so large. Everything was fabulous. As we ate the place started to... More

We accidentally came across this place and had a great evening. The food was great. We has the lamb souvlaki and the kebab, and a whole bunch of starters. The live music was very entertaining and a few local customers got up and danced.

Very good food in a pleasant back yard with a lovely atmosphere! Prices were also good, but I didn't like the fact that they charged us for the bread they brought us anyway (which usually is free in Greece). They did bring us a free desert drink though and they were very friendly. Would recommend it if you are in... More

We had an excellent dinner here on a Monday night in heavy tourist season. Miraculously, it didn't feel touristy at all, wonderful life music, fantastic wait service, delicious food and great house wine, we felt like we were being pampered with an evening of great Greek cuisine and wonderful entertainment. We had stuffed tomatoes and peppers, homemade pasta, and eggplant... More

If you want to enjoy authentic Greek music and atmosphere, this is the place to go! Bustling with the activity, live music, dancing, good service, this place makes it the place to be. We came in later at night, but were seated promptly at a nice table right next to the guitar player, which made it so much more fun.... More
