Best steak in Athens

Compared to international levels this is one of the best steakhouses I ever visited. Excellent service and don't miss the deserts.

Steak tartare, Parmesan criss, lamb flat bread, charcuterie platter, steaks, quinoa salads and the desert tower ! If u can afford... More

If you have to have only 1 reason to visit this restaurant this would be surprisingly the sweets! Plus the famous meat of course, but you know in Greece you can eat good meat in many places. A bit pretentious but the service was very good!

It is an honest deal. The meat assortment in various cuts is great (you get to see them before you decide). The quality and cooking also (medium rare is medium rare). You can eat at 19:00, in a full restaurant, which is unusual for Athens (too early!). The service is quite good (some people don't like the chief waiter to... More

I've reviewed this restaurant before, but haven't been there for a year. I just went back and am happy to report that while the maitre'd has left, the restaurant is as excellent as ever.

I had my best meal in Athens so far this year, at this restaurant, and we eat out a minimum of twice a week. The starters of wasabi fried shrimp , among others were great,.,...they could have been slightly larger portions. And the fries are a must. A waiter comes round with a tray displaying all the different cuts of... More

Thank you for visiting our restaurant! We’re glad you had a good time and enjoyed the food. Regarding those issues that you mention: prices depend directly on the quality of the produce and materials used. The higher the quality, the pricier they get. But we're happy to offer our clients the best we can get from the market. Vezené is... More

mainly a meat place with a good selection of steaks in a respectable attempt to upgrade the experience with good service and high end prices. nothing special on the entrée dishes, but the steak was good. A little overcrowded and a bit noisy. wine selection decent.

Came here with friends, but it was SO NOISY and the tables are really small to sit 2. The noise and all this crowd does not leave you enjoy your meal which is ok but still you don’t go out just for the meal but you expect the restaurant to have the package. This does not.

Since my first visit and subsequent review some two years ago, I have visited Vezene another 3 times and the Restaurant's response to my original review only this week reminded me to update.
