Located in central Athens, near the Monastiraki section, this is a lovely restaurant. There dishes are exceptional and very creative, and their wine selection excellent. The foie gras is their specialty. I had the rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection. I should also mention that the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere lively.

We booked the New Years Eve 5 course dinner in this restaurant and were so much looking forward to this. The menu looked amazing and we really liked the idea of the wine pairing which sounded amazing. The dinner started really well and we liked the first two courses very much. We asked to slow down as the food came... More

There are many similar restaurants in Athens, especially in this touristy part of the town, close to Syntagma, Plaka and the Akropolis, but this one stands out from the crowd! Innovative dishes, fun atmosphere, quality food and above all exceptional service. The chef was able to accommodate our specific dietary requirements without any compromise on the overall concept and the... More

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.
