Nothing special, but reasonably priced

I went here with another traveller I met during the day. We had Greek salad to share and each chose a pork dish (served with chips) and a beer. Everything was tasty, nothing special but no problems. At 13 euros per person (so under £10) I was pretty happy with it.

We were looking for a simple dinner. Found this place by accident. Simple, very clean , good portions and no surprises . We tried the greek salad, the chicken donor and chicken fillet with a greek yougurt dip. All came with fries and bread. We would visit back again.

Good value. Friendly staff. We would have appreciated some spices. Food was a little bit too plain. No complaints otherwise.

English is light, but the food is heavenly. Great dishes and good prices. Across from metro station so easy access.

We found this restaurant while wandering through the downtown Athens below the Acropolis. We stayed on the outdoor patio and ordered Mousaka, Saganaki cheese, gyros and a greek salad. The food and beer (Mythnos) was perfect, and the price was very good.

Chicken souvlaki and lamb and pork gyros were cheap and delicious. Skip the spinach pie. And avoid the house wine. Staff was friendly and helpful- locals were even eating at this place.

We arrived in Athnes early and walked around until we found this quaint street in the centre. The meat looked delicious so we sat, had a beer, shared a salad and dug into the chicken gyros. What was different was that the chicken had a lovely crust, as though it had been slow roasted for days! It cost us 14€... More

I have visited this place on my first day of holidays. I did not get why people are complaining about food quality here. Seriously?! I visited few other places and a loads of taverns throughout Rhodos, Crete and mainland- Athens & Piraeus, and I can proudly say this tavern is true and original to Greek food!! Is a typical greek...

This restaurant was the worst we had in Athens. The owner was really not customer minded, the food was not nice at all and without any flavor. Not to be recommended at all.

We arrived in Athens late, anticipating a day at the Acropolis. We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel manager. It was almost 11pm and I didn't hold much hope, but this place was excellent. It is not a posh place, tables are available outside on the sidewalk or inside where men young and old we're watching Real Madrid. The... More
