“Relaxing and nourishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Can't agree with MerryMeck - we thought it so good that we ate there 3 times in a week and that was not because we're lazy or cautious with Greek cooking. Yes the chips were 4.50 Euro for a plateful but they could have been cooked by Heston B - delicious and crisp and not covered in oil, but that item was probably the least good value on the menu. The fish was delicious ,fresh, lightly cooked and in huge portions and cheaper than at Piraeous. The salads were nicely dressed and big enough for two even when the party contained a determined caterpillar. The meat plates were substantial and I took a carry out of some because I didn't want to embarass myself by not being able to stand up at the end of the meal. The chocolate mousse (with hidden profiteroles) was delicious. Red wine better than the white. Not gourmet food but delicious. If you need cheap food there are plenty of souvlaki's or takeaways but 35-45 euros for 2 for food,wine and water doesn't seem a high price.

“Unless you have no choice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Illogical high prices for such a low general quality.
The fact that thry are becoming famous (and Sardelles close to them is under restructuring) is making the whole thing becoming worse.

“I recommend it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have been to The Butcher Shop in the area of Gazi many times. This restaurant always surprises me with the freshness of their food, how quick the service is, the prices and mostly for their innovative design. The place has been designed flawlessly. The selection of meats is vast and very tasty. The salads accented with lemon, salt, vinaigrettes and fresh herbs exactly to the amount needed. Simple Greek cuisine, meats only, done deliciously. Bravo to the owners for their taste in food and style. Very well done. It is a great spot to have a Sunday lunch or even in the summertime during dinner and one of the best places to browse people while having a meal. Two thumbs up!
