Excellent location with the view of Acropolis and awesome local specialties - fish and red wine. They had to kick us out ;-)

We shared grilled octopus and grilled stuffed squid with cheese and grilled stuff squid with risotto and the meal was just beautiful! They have a roof top terrace and we had not booked so if you want to have a view of the Acropolis then book!

Lots of variety in the food with inexpensive sampler plates like mix appetizers or desserts. Food was good but not amazing. But it had a really, really, really nice view of Lycabettus Hill and Acropolis looming behind you. Beautiful in the evening when the lights illuminate the sites. Service is quick. In a pretty [and steep] hill in Plaka. Not... More

We were recommend this local historic restaurant by our private tour guide, with rooftop dining (we did not because it was too hot for lunch, but must be nice for dinner), as it is in a hidden road in Plaka, where most tourist will not go. We had an amazing lamb stew with potatoes, and great greek appetizers, on a... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant on the night of August 28, 2014. The meal was very good, the waiters very attentive, and the atmosphere outside on the balcony lovely.. Then the bill came. I had mentally added the approximate bill in my head. I never worry if the actual bill is a few euro/s higher. However, this... More

The food was just awful in this restaurant! We ordered fish and steamed vegetables and the food, especially the vegetables, didn't taste like anything. We complained about the quality of the food but the staff didn't seem to understand or care. The price (14€) was ridicilous considering the quality of the food so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

The positives: The location is actally very nice, the restaurant has several levels, each offers a very nice view of Athens. Thats it for the positives. The negatives, most importantly, the waiter that attended to us was extremely rude, short in his responses and abrupt. We were seated in the roof top area of the restaurant. We immediately realized that... More

I went here for dinner with my Aunt and Uncle who are from Athens. My hotel had recommended it as well as well as their 40 year old son - who said it was one of the top places to eat in Plaka. We were not disappointed. The food was good - it is a taverna so I wasn't expecting... More

Walking thru the steep and beautiful streets of Plakka the old tavern really caught our eye. After a bit of miscommunication with the old waiter we had a good time. The main dishes weren't that big for the money you pay but tasted very good.

Table of eight - two families with older teenagers enjoyed a great dinner here. By this time we were "gastronomes" of Greek "typical" food having eaten seven days on the bounce but this was by far and away the best. Excellent vegetable dishes and fish. Well worth booking a table on the the roof top terrace.
