“Best place to eat in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I've been coming to Kuzina maybe once a year since it opened, and I have never been dissappointed. Fantasic Greek food with a very modern twist, attentive and friendly service, excellent wines, and the view, especially from the roof terrace is amazing! You literally see only temples (acropolis, hefaistos) and trees. Book ahead if you want a table at the roof terrace. Sitting outside at street level is also very nice, but again it is best to book a table, at least in the summer / weekends.

“Decent restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This was our first dining experience in Athens and we enjoyed ourselves. The portions were large and the service was quick. We ate outside on the street, so I regret not eating upstairs for the view, but we gladly experienced the hustle and bustle of passersby instead.

“Good food - but oh dear, watch your bags!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We chose this place for its location and good reviews here on TripAdvisor and met up with a Greek friend during a two day stay in Athens recently. The food - we all had the fixed price menu of 3 courses for 19 Euros and the food was well cooked, made from fresh ingredients and a bit different from the usual, dull Greek fare (we lived in Greece for 4 years and it doesn't half begin to get on your nerves after a couple of years of the same old, same old); a glass of decent wine came with the food.

We enjoyed it very much, the location is ostensibly excellent in a busy area below the Acropolis - but when we got up to leave, our Greek friend discovered that one of the many passers-by had relieved him of his bag, containing wallet, car keys and passport. Not the restaurant's fault, but I mention it to urge caution upon anyone eating in a busy, open-air place in Athens.

“The food is good but very slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

The food is good but the waiters are not professional and very slow. Prices normal/high. Cuisine traditionally Greek revisited.... Not a great success!!

“Perfect way to spend a romantic evening in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is a place where it's not just about the food (which is incredible, fresh and beautifully presented), it is about the experience. We were lucky enough to get a table on the roof top with an amazing view of the Acropolis, but recommend you reserve ahead as they are full almost every night. The busy, professional staff still made time to interact, take pictures and made sure that we had an exceptional dining experience. Don't miss this place!
