If you want to have high quality meat,in Athens that is were you go. But you can also have other dishes to.The service is excelllent,the wine list very good too. It is pricey though!!especially if you compare it to New York City prices were you can,as everyone knows find the best steaks.They should definetely review their prices downward!!

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).
