Though all dishes were very tasty, the excellent and well cooked meat stands out. Unfortunately the dessert was nothing special. Our server was super nice and went a long way to explain us the rather sophisticated descriptions on the menu. The atmosphere is both laid back and upscale so you can enjoy a relaxed conversation while getting a great meal.... More

The food was very good especially the meat, very tender and juicy. There are also some other interesting dishes, well cooked, such as the trachanas with sea shells, kritharoto with special meat The mini burgers were tasty and the salad refreshing. At the end came a huge dessert which is very difficult to eat it all specially after a good... More

Very near the Hilton. Great selection of beef, good desserts, and fantastic local wines. The staff was fast and courteous and the ambience was delightful. We will go again at our first opportunity.

Great experience! Top quality meat, beautifully cooked. Beef tartare to die for! Excellent fried potatoes with truffle oil and parmegiano. Very professional service! Aris dessert, very impressive but huge and way too heavy after dinner. Avoid it!

Nice atmosphere in a good Athens neighborhood. The food is very good but not Michelin star good, while prices are definitely one star level. I can think of many Athenian restaurants that offer the same quality of food at approximately half the price. Very good for business occasions as long as the corporate card pays the bill.

Food was so and so, some dishes better than others, but what spoils the whole thing is that tables are so close one next to the other, -tables for two are extremely small that there are times the dishes coming cannot fit. Location is great, very close to the Hilton and the Divani Caravel hotels. Go here if you are... More

Conveniently located near some of the Athens big hotels and at walking distance from Kolonaki, a place to enjoy mainly meat. A variety of cuts, tasty and cooked exactly as requested. The youvetsi was a real treat. The day we had dinner there, we had an outstanding dish of tagliolini with sea urchins and cecina (Spanish cured meat). The shrimp... More
