Charming, Friendly Staff!

This was our very first meal in Greece. After traveling for 12+ hours, we were very tired and wanted something close to The Hilton (where we were staying) and The Hilton staff recommended Oroscopo. What a welcome to Greece! The food was very good, and the staff was SO friendly. They were very... read more

We tried this restaurant based on its Trip Advisor rating and were not disappointed. Delicious food, reasonably priced and great staff. We were even offered free desserts and liqueurs afterwards. We would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

Visited for dinner primarily given locality to hotel we were staying in (and other positive reviews). We were quite hungry so ended up ordering a starter each and a main each -- which ended up being a huge amount of food (I think the starters may have been bigger than the mains).

The people here are amazing, very friendly and very attentive. When we first walked in we had a table waiting, inside as it was kind of chilly out. The place itself is very cute and open, it has outside and inside seating options. There is an awesome painting of Artemis on the wall which I would love to find a... More

The meat just separated from the leg and was so very tender. The meal package with Greek salad, lamb with spinach and fries, and dessert ( and the free soup) was my best meal in Greece. I plan to go back before departing Greece

Great place. Food is abundant and excellent. Waiters are very friendly and really take care of you like you are family. They gave us a surprise appetizer, which was delicious, and wine on the house. The atmosphere is lovely. Recommend.
