Enjoyed very much the restaurant. It's a little expensive for what it is but location and place is very nice with friendly service. Starters were the best, as always in Greek restaurants.

I ordered a garoupa, which was disappointing as it wasn't fresh and was overlooked. Everything we ordered felt like the chef was very heavy handed on the salt. Disappointing.

The first good thing about this tavern is the view. In Athens where sun shines most days seating in this taverna and looking at Athens old and new is a very pleasant way to enjoy the mainly Greek cooking of this taverna. They serve most Greek dishes well cooked with efficient service and some grills are available including fish. The... More

After a walk at the nice area of Plaka in Athens, it is a good choice to stop for sea food and some wine drinking.

We asked our hotel to recommend an authentic Greek taverna, and were directed to this place. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was great, with generous portions.

we have been to this restaurant several times - it has good fish in a nice setting under the Acropolis. On our most recent trip we were short-changed when paying the bill - the calculation was easy and it's hard to believe this was an error, particularly as the waiter didn't bring the bill back with the change, so we...

We would probably not have found this delightful spot but our guide pointed out the somewhat hidden entrance as we drove by on our way to the hotel. It was as short walk through the Plaka from our hotel. The restaurant has a number of seating options but it was a lovely day so we elected to sit outside under... More

Managed to find this cloistered taverna in the dark evening, thanks to the lighted signboards. The waiting staff were helpful and obliging. Showed us to the kitchen to view the fish we were going to order for the grill. They were also very friendly to the kids, making then feel entirely at home and allowing a change to fries on... More
