Awful and terrible food , i will not return there. Flavours are mostly covered by cheeses. Most of the dishes were very heavy for my taste.

Ouzo Melathron, is a tavern that covers both sides of the alley were it is located, so even before we entered the alley, we were sourounded by... More

Flavours are mostly covered by cheeses or other "taste-enhancements". Very fatty dishes, relatively tasteful -which would be unnatural not to be after all these melted cheeses-. Once, we ordered grilled meat and it was heavily overcooked. When we were students we liked its "different" dishes that were filled with cheeses, milk-creams, mayos and mustards, but after a while we got... More

I occasionally follow this place for many reasons. I like the kitchen and I like the thing that it is well grounded regarding the prices. It seems that it has lost many of the followers but I was satisfied with my selections. So I would visit again

A nice place to eat, meet friends, have fun and listen to the music as there are lives regularly. The decoration is witty and cute, the staff is friendly, the food is quite good, not extraordinary though. Service was not always as wished for but I suppose this was due to the crowded tables.

The prices are acceptable, the place is nice but I reccomend this place only if you want to drink ouzo, or tsipouro and not eat a lot. The dishes are not bad but there is too much effort to make them look presentable or unique but they end up being very heavy on the stomach. Almost all of them are... More

Good location in the center of town. Its actually not a single taverna but a group of a few tavernas in a walk-only (no cars) street. The atmosphere was great: live music, a lot of locals singing together and a friendly stuff. The food was also good and the service was fast. Free complementary ice-cream for dessert :)

Well, I think this place is more famous than greek cuisine. It's nothing classic, but the menu is quite interesting even so. The food is good, but not everything in the menu. The mutton ribs with sweet wine sauce is great, but the fresh squid lost at taste test. The prices are pretty high, the portions are decent, the location... More
