Very close to Hilton so can be nicely combined with a drink at galaxy bar or night out in kolonaki. The place is small and hence the difficulty to make reservation (although I think they are trying to talk the place up when they say book 2-3 days in advance , its a kind of a marketing thing in my...

We had heard about this restaurant through friends and couldn't wait to try it. The atmosphere was nice and everything was going well. The waitress had suggested the raw marinated shrimp which was terrible and would never eat it again, The wagu burgers were very good as were the scallops. We ordered two kinds of steak which were really very... More

Had dinner last night (May 23) with my wife. It was my first time. Had a nice table overlooking hotel Hilton across the road. Nice welcome. The waitress was very friendly and knew her subject very well. Walked us through the menu with patience and advised us on what to try. We also had a 'tour' of the various cuts... More

The meat was perfect especially the burger that is supposed to be prepared by cutting and mincing the meat by hand and not by a machine...the plate with the bone marrow was really amazing but there is a huge problem for every non smoker...and this is where the fun stops because it is unacceptable to reserve a seat in a...

I am not a great lover of red meat, though when cooked well and beautifully presented, I become a great fan. So this place seemed rather average to me. The meat you are about to eat is presented raw, and you select from a large platter. This much is special, because they are well-chosen pieces. But what is done with... More

I ate very well in this restaurant. Both the starter (a salad) and desert (a pavlova) were smartly-conceived pieces with intense, complementary flavours and textures. Both were genuinely exciting to the palate and the desert was also very pretty. The main beef course was a more traditional recipe, but beautifully executed and with top-notch ingredients, including the tender, rich meat.... More

This used to be one of the top gourmet places in Athens to have fish and meat. My last visit to this place was rather disappointing. The food was average, the service was lacking and the price was still high. I will give it one more chance but I am expecting changes.

after difficulty for reserving, we had a dinner. The decoration is nice and cosy. The stuff friendly. Did not like the show of raw meat in order to choose. little brutal for my taste. The first plates interesting, the main dishes nothing extraordinary, and for dessert a giant ice cream ( 6 personnes could not eat it all) which was... More
