“Exceptional & Inventive food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Have eaten there many times over several years. Food is always excellent and often very novel combinations of Greek food is presented. As with many restaurants in Greece, the establishment treats the table to sweets or fruit as a dessert.

“Nice traditional Greek food”

A beautiful and friendly place where you can enjoy traditional Greek food, well cooked and with reasonable prices.
You will enjoy the presence of both families and managers.

“Very good value, great device”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Until 7pm they do a set "lunch" of 3 courses plus any drink for EUR 12.50. They gave us a free cake at the end and a free glass of Liqueur (Ouzo?).

A half litre of house red wine cost eur4.50.

When you arrive they also put a jug of cold water on the table and hot bread and olive sauce. The hot bread costs eur1.70 and was delicious. Well worth it, although probably you have to pay for it whether you want it or not.

The restaurant was pretty empty, like all restaurants on alexander street but it was mid winter and raining so I guess that's just the season.

My wife didn't take the set meal and ordered from the menu instead. The bill came to EUR 37 for the two of us and was correctly added up. There was no service charge or tax added. We left a good tip.

Overall we had a good impression.

“Perfect Greek restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Alexandra is one of my favorites restaurants in Athens. They serve real Greek food based on the great Greek cooking tradition. Everything is well cooked and served. All the dishes are very tasty. The environment is nice reminding the old Greek tavernas but with a small touch of luxury. The service is good. The only problem with this restaurant is that it is a little bit overpriced. If the prices will be reduced it would be one of the best restaurant solutions in Athens.
