Condemned by a friend before my very first visit, VEZENE was a mystery even before I arrived for dinner with my cousins last night. The friend who condemned it perhaps wished he could afford restaurants like VEZENE but, as he regrettably cannot, he probably thinks he might as well destroy their reputation. Guided by my friend’s negative comments, I read... More

We had an early dinner by Greek standards - but excellent service, amazing food and the setting is very well designed. The scallops were very good, spinach salad and quinoa salad were very good. The beef wasn't my favorite.

Wooden tables, refectory style! Exciting menu with.. exciting prices! Cute paper bread basket with four different breads and an aromatic spicy butter to start. Lots of imagination in the dishes, lots of taste, the fried prawn was flavorful, even though I personally hate the sweet red chillies sauce, the St. Jacques was perfect and the same was the prawn salad....

Last winter I visited this restaurant with my wife and a couple of friends as we had heard very good comments, but finally we were totally disappointed. Firstly I have to mention that at that time my wife was pregnant, something that could be easily seen. When she ordered she asked for well-done roasted meet, so they wrote it in... More

The quality of the food is still one of the best I've tasted anywhere. The service is still outstanding and the place has a great vibe (at least in the weekend when I went).

Indeed this is a great restaurant. We visited it on a Tuesday night and it was totally packed. Service is so friendly and efficient. Food is absolutely fantastic. The meat they serve is hard to find in many places in Greece. Very good wine list and we had a delicious chocolate cake. It is by no means cheap but it... More

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

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
