I was there two days ago, a disaster ... cockroaches everywhere, waitress sends you to get your own drinks from the bar, potatoes  moldy, rotten fish, oil unchanged since who knows when ........ I do not recommend anyone to go there, the kitchen should be closed forever! Most unpleasant experience of my life!

This review was written by a disgruntled former employee who has just opened a Trip Advisor account to attack and villify our business. We have asked Trip Advisor to remove the obviously fraudulent review and are still waiting. Our 3 year old restaurant is kept immaculately clean and has all completely new equipment and uses only the best raw ingredients... More

Chips were good, but the fish was super soggy and not flavorful. The greek salad was good, but it is everywhere in Athens. It also wasn't as affordable as it is touted here.

You can sit in the bar next door to eat and drink if you wish, the owner is the same. This place is great and located right near the Acropolis and what appears to be a decent hostel although I wasn't staying there. If you are in the mood for fish and chips and perhaps some onion rings, then I... More

Great quick breakfast near the Acropolis. We were staying at nearby Hotel Tony & this was an excellent breakfast option. Small good value for money menu...their website shows current menu. After 9.30am it is not as busy as the "in-house" guests [backpackers] service finishes then.

Found this cafe when strolling around the back streets near the Acropolis Museum. It really appealed as it was so fresh and clean looking. It did not disappoint. All the food was freshly cooked to order. It all tasted great and was served pipingly hot. It's not just fish and chips they serve. We had that the first night and... More
