The best restaurant in Athens. One can get sick of feta cheese and greek salads in Greece, but their greek salad "sorbet" is out-of-this-world. We had the tasting menu with pairings and everything went together incredibly well. It's difficult to explain the food, it needs to be experienced first hand. Should be on everyone's to-do list in Athens. Only negative... More

This restaurant certainly deserves its highest praise. Much has been said about it, we just can confirm it, also our two boys aged 10 and 12 were more than happy. The food, the presentation and the staff everything wonderful. We enjoyed the evening and it will certainly for long be remembered. Again many thanks. And indeed we needed our own... More

Booking is essential for this restaurant, but this was easily accomplished by email from the UK. You can book up to 30 days in advance. You also need to reconfirm the day before, which again I did by email. Our arrival at the restaurant was a little unnerving. Our taxi driver felt it was an unsafe area and insisted on... More

This restaurant was for sure our highlight during our visit in Athens. The restaurant is situated in a so to speak special area, and almost the only house suited for living persons. We took the 18 dishes tasting menu with paring wines. All made to perfection. For sure a modern kitchen, and the chef does play a lot. The only... More

On arrival you may not immediately see the restaurant, we walked past it in what appears to be a slightly scary suburb. But once inside.... We selected the full degustation s meal and included the wine, well worth it. The service was attentive, but not over the top (which can often occur in these restaurants). There was a true theatre...

The location of the restaurant is hidden within the neighborhood. We get there by cab, the driver knows the location however, he has difficulties entering the alley. So we have to get down by the main road and take a small walk into the neighborhood. Of course, the driver direct us :) The 17 courses are interesting visually and the... More

We took the dive and ordered the 17 courses with wine. One of the most creative meals we have ever had. Definitely deserving of the Michelin Stars. The Picnic might be the most interesting course of food we have ever had.

Restaurant is located in a bit fuzzy neighbourhood and has no sign at all outside. There is a porter, however, so you can't mistake. Inside there's an oasis. Interior decoration in very stylish. Service is excellent. And, of course, what's the most important, the food is fantastic! I recall only three restaurants at the same level, and those all have... More
