“Trying to be a Greek restaurant!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

If you really want to have an original Greek food, the title of this restaurant will mislead you!
It's nothing more than a restaurant with Greek owners probably living for many years in Germany and they have forgot what an original Greek food must taste!
They have adopt their original recipes into a modern German-Greek style! Probably because this way they are "closer" to what their target group -Germans- like more! Good for business (???), but definitely not an original Greek restaurant!

Above that...service is terrible! You have to wait for...hours in order to be served! I went in a time that there was no one else and still I had to wait for 25' till someone will come to take my order.
Food was not tasteful at all and they charge you like you had a dinner at the Buckingham Palace!!!

A great disappointment according of course to my Greek background and standards!!!

I wouldn't recommended to anyone!

“Good food, but not real Greek.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Do not let the rather un-imposing entrance fool you. All the good stuff is going on down-stairs. It's very likely that the owner or a waiter, will come and shake your hand and bid you welcome, when you come down the stairs. And serve you an Ouzo while you make your choise in the menu.
The food is really good and the portions will not leave you hungry. Even at very affordable prices.
The staff is very attentive.
The food is not that close to Grece. Compared to real Greek food I was missing some more vegetables.

“Lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010

Has a great meal here in December, restaurant was very busy on a Thursday night but the staff made us very welcome whilst we waited for a table. Food was really good, my husband had kleftico and I had grilled sole both well cooked and beautifully presented. Service was excellent and there was a very cozy atmosphere.

Will definitely visit again next time we are in this beautiful city but would make a reservation next time as it was so busy.

This is worth a visit just for the atmosphere and the great personalities of the wait staff. Free shots after your meal warm you up if its a cold day.
