I was truly touched by the warmth, passion and hospitality of this restaurant. This is a restaurant where people are... read more

Found Oroscopo online as a place to eat in Athens. We walked about a half mile to get there from our metro stop and just happened to walk past Kalimarmaro what a wonderful surprise! It is walking distance from most metro stops in Athens and happens to be near some major historical sites if your are only in town for... More

Wow. They just kept bringing us food. We went there for just a couple of pizzas and they started us with bread and dipping sauces. Seemed normal. Then, they asked us to try some soup. We ordered our pizzas (which were EXCELLENT)...then they bring us desert...and some lime/lemon drink as well. We were only billed for the pizzas we ordered... More

We choose this restaurant for dinner due to its high rating in TripAdvisor but we were either unlucky or our we do not have the same taste for excellency with the other reviewers. For me excellent must also be unique in service and gastronomic experience. We did not encounter any of these at this restaurant. Service was at the limits... More

Especially recommend the grilled octopus and fish of the day (whatever it may be). Children loved pizza margarita and spaghetti Napoli - the classic children's meal, but of great quality! All accompanied by a great selection of Greek wines (for adults only of course)

This place is a total gem. We were a little nervous when the waiter brought out bottled water, bread and dip, and soup that we didn't order but it was on the house. The flavors of our dishes were amazing. The complimentary sweets afterwards were sooo good. This is the best meal we have had in all of Greece. Thank... More
