We got into this restaurant by chance. The open kitchen fresh octopus down there in the basement attracted us. The chef was working very relaxed with confidence. We took the opportunity and tried it. Was great and the fresh octopus was delicious indeed. The price and the quality was great indeed. We had tried many expensive restaurants in plaka but... More

We found this restaurant in my guide book. Its a traditional basement restaurant with good Greek food and service. The food was good but the menu is "what you see is what you get" so order carefully. We had stuffed vine leaves plus tomato and cheese salad for starters - both very nice. They are known for their cod so... More

From the top of Acropolis you can look down and see Plaka, a neighborhood built on the slopes of the mountain. Doing so I thought I saw the perfect restaurant which I convinced my fellow travelers to seek out. Of course was this an impossible mission but on the way we asked around where it might be, based on a... More

I was at this restaurant in February, with a colleague. The place is relatively smail, i didn't book a table in advance, but it was early ( 19.45) and there were a couple of free tables. The menu is quite varied, full of traditional greek dishes. I had the lamb casserole, which was fantastic, all the starters were also great!!... More

We had our best dinner in Athens there. Food is delicious and authentic. Service is nice and friendly. And the price is really very good for value. 3 starters + 2 main dishes (swordfish was liking-plate good) + 1glass of wine: 35 euros.

The food was not something special, just well cooked home made style. Ouzo small battle was too small, seems lesser than promised 200 ml. Grilled cheese and the overall service is less affordable than in Oroscopo where we had dinner yesterday. Left this one with the wish to have something more to eat or to drink.

The food at this restaurant was very delicious. It was honest and well prepared. We agreed on, that this could be the place to go, when you're tired of "restaurant food". Of course you can go there any time :-) Good servants, good prices and good taste! We ate their squid (very good and beautiful prepared) and lamb - also... More

I was walking in the Plaka district and this place, with the Tripadvisor symbol of excellence posted at the front door, caught my eye. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. I was the only one in the restaurant during the entire time I ate there and let me tell you, I felt like I was at home. The owners and... More

As you disappear down the stairs you find yourself immersed into the history of this place: 120 years serving the same dishes to its customers, that's its success story.. Fried norwegian or russian cod fillets, skordalia (dynamite strong garlic sauce, torturing spicy - make sure you don't go to any meetings with people for the next couple of days..), boiled... More
