Excellent quality, superb service, and yes - the food is that delicious. Expensive? Yes. But to be expected for this type of quality of food. Bravo!

The in place to eat a well cooked steak in Athens. A small restaurant hidden in the neighborhoods of Athens. The service is amazing. The staff well prepared as they know what to recommend. Very kind with a smile on their faces at all times. We tried steak and it was superb!!!

A rather small restaurant with interesting decoration but what makes the imporance is the food. Fancy dishes and food presentation and I wish they were tasteful, too. Everything was too salty(salad,seafood,meat) and made just to impress a client that has never been to an expensive restaurant. And talking about prices, far from been realistic for the quality and taste served!... More

A very pleasant gourmet bistro. All the dishes were delicious. But, small portions and expensive menu. You pay too much for the quality and the image than the quantity.

Thank you for visiting our restaurant! We’re glad you had a good time and enjoyed the food. Just to add though that prices depend directly on the quality of the produce and the materials used.

5 stars for the ambience and location. Just a few minutes walk from Kolonaki. Excellent decor. Smoke-free interiors. Great views at the Hilton. 4 stars for the food. We had wagyu beef tartar which was excellent. Truffle and parmesan fries that were amazing. Baby lamb pie which was ok but nothing special. For main we tried Onglet and some other... 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

Thank you for visiting our restaurant! We are glad you liked your food. Just to let you know, though, that the odour you mentioned possibly came from our woodfired oven. This is something usual in small-sized bistros like ours where you can enjoy contact with the open kitchen. Anyway we're doing our best to improve this. Please accept our apologies... More
