One of the most warm and cosy environments. The service was extremely helpful and fast. The food can only be characterised as exceptional! Well cooked with high standard ingredients. What I've paid was nothing compared to the value and taste of the food. I highly recommend it.

Safka is a wonderful and unexpected experience in Athens. It's a piece of Finnish service, food and design in the Metaxourgeio area. A very nice piece, I should add. If you've never tried reindeer meat (dried, smoked or cooked), smoked salmon grilled with herbs or various Nordic berries, Safka is perfect to discover these delicacies. The service was impeccable and... More

We visited the Safka restaurant in July 2014 through a promotional activity. We have read about a Scandinavian restaurant in Athens and we took the opportunity to try it. We were impressed by the service, the staff was very professional and more than happy to provide explanations on the dishes, and they paid attention to detail. The food was great,... More

I believe that it is one of the best gourmet restaurants my wife and I have tried so far. It is a new and innovative effort from a couple of people to create something nice in Greece. The food is amazing, the staff super-friendly and the sous chef excellent. I highly recommend the smoked salmon (it is house-made smoked), definitely... More

The space was very inviting, simple Scandinavian interior, lots of candles and a flower on every table. The hostess was very hospitable, and the service attentive and pleasant. The... More

Visited Safka with my family. Decoration and design was simple or else simply Scandinavian. Magnificent Octo lamps, comfortable Artek (looking??) chairs. I live in Finland for 7 yrs and that was a great "come back". Personnel was friendly, able to appropriately describe the plates and suggest the appropriate wine. We had 2 starters, 4 main, four desserts and a bottle... More
