A very modern take on Greek cuisine. The restaurant was actually recommended to us by another restaurant owner which is a major compliment. Very extensive wine list from allover Greece offered by the glass and bottle. Our seafood entrees were well prepared and presented. I wish I could remember the name of the vineyard from Santorini that we enjoyed the... More

We were getting a little tired of traditional Greek food (which we love) after a week in Athens and decided to have something different. Mono was recommended to us as a Greek food with a twist. Their menu has a nice mix of seafood, meats and poultry ("fat duck" appetizer was out of this world). The food was wonderful, presentation... More

We were doing a nighttime stroll through the Plaka checking to see if any restaurant looked specially promising. I had this one as a fallback selection. All I remembered was the name and that it was located somewhere just south of the cathedral. We found it easily. We asked for a table for two and were allowed to seat ourselves... More

Had a big, robust, peppery Syrah and shared the beef tartare for a starter. It is smooth, garlicky and very spicy, a terrific apetizer. My husband ordered the short ribs and I was going to order the salmon, however our server said that the wine was excellent with meat or tuna but she did not enjoy it with the salmon.... More

Good food, exploiting the ingredients of the greek nature. Classic dishes with hints of gourmet, as long as some gourmet dishes.

This really was one of our best eating out experiences anywhere over the last few years. The food was very imaginative, with an interesting blend of flavours. We especially loved the white chocolate and tonka bean sauce with the duck starter, the orange sauce and lentil mix with the salmon and the tapioca plus yoghurt dill sauce with the lamb.... More

We were looking for a place with a more modern Greek food than the tourist tavernas and this fitted the bill. Its in a quiet location near the tourist areas but not on a tourist street. I had a fish dish with humous and chick peas which was very interesting and unusual and I thought tasted great. My husband wasn't... More

Had an excellent meal with superb service. Tuna three ways (carpaccio, smoked and sashimi) then crusted chicken with black rice. Stunning presentation, large serves and outstanding flavours. Meal was complemented by excellent Greek wine recommended by the staff. Staff were discrete but very attentive. Great atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant.
