“Excellent!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We went there last night and surprisingly enough the meat was cooked exactly the way I wanted it. Very few restaurants in Greece know how to serve a medium-rare meat. As for the service, the staff was polite, helpful and on time. We will definitely go again.

“VERY DISSAPOINTED”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We went there for my brother's birthday. We expected to be a good restaurant for the price they charge. What a mistake! All meat were hard. Everything was cold and tasteless. What a waste of money! WE WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN.WE WERE VERY DISSAPOINTED .

“Very good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very good food and atmosphere. At a bit odd location. Really small restaurant so reservation is needed. Great selection of wines! Amazing salads!

“found a treasure in Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We asked Hilton Athens several times to recomment a nice place to eat around that area and they never suggest this. Well, as a five star hotel THEY SHOULD!

This place has simple but well taken care of atmosphere. The place is warm, with good clientele that you can sense from the outsite before you go in. Interesting eclectic menu, rich wine list, excellent service, value for money food and above all fresh ingredients.

Definetely try clam shels and fresh scallops. Both are very fresh indeed! This is one of these restaurants where you feel you are being taken cared for. It's not very formal and not very casual. It's best described as semi casual. This is a restaurant with personality and real face. I recomend this to every visitor in Athens. Reserving a table is advisable, especially in weekends!

“the real value for money food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

During August, my friends and i decided to go for dinner at Vesene restaurant. This turned out to be a wonderful choice.The enviroment was very nice and the service was excellent. All the people were very kind and helpfull. The real reason though,that drives me to this place again and again is the splendid food. We tasted a lot of courses of great quality, but if i have to suggest something it will be two courses. Thin crust pizza,maybe the best i ever tasted in Athens, is one thing. The second is the ultimate pleasure! The 'deal closer' dessert is something that everyone should try! Last but not least, the prices were reasonable enough considering the quality of the food.
