I liked the starters, the salad and the main course, where the pork fillet and the beef steak were cooked to perfection

The meat was good, the salads, too. The only problem was the prices. It was too expensive . The restaurant is quiet, people are kind, but not so fast. I would not go there again because of the prices.

OK, the meat is excellent. The setting is very nice also. However, somehow they manage to make it a mediocre. The service is not what you would expect at this price and it is too "fake". They do not try to serve you but to impress you. Not that it is bad but I would expect much more.

Lovely place with great meat, and inspired appetizers. But at minimum 50€ before the wine it's expensive.

The restaurant had a special offer of two main courses, one starter and one salad at €49,50 for two. The waiter guided us to order just that but forgot to mention that the main course we ordered was not included as it had the letters SP next to it and we should have read the bottom of the menu were...

I'm talking about the Vrilissia restaurant (I've never been to Vari). Both indoors and outdoors is beautiful and romantic. Food is always good, but there were some changes at the menu (unfortunately some interesting appetizers and main dishes have been removed). Well, the fillet (tenderloin) is fine and the fajitas (beef, chicken or shrimp) are still on the menu to... More

The Vrilissia branch of Oro Toro is a pleasant, cosy place located at a convenient spot in the Vrilissia suburb. It is good for both couples and families with children, for both teens and the middle aged and for both a tet-a-tet and large groups (their space arrangements are very clever and the service adjusting to any need). The management... More
