“Lovely restaurant and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

The reviews abot this restaurant made me curious but I was not sure about going to piraeus... We eventually decided to brave it and although the area is not super nice, the restaurant is worth the hassle. Lovely decor and friendly service. The degustation menu was a real feast and we enjoyed every bit of it. Totally recommended and affordable.

“Greek gastronomy with a twist!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Serene, welcoming atmosphere, casual chic dress code. As for the food, well, it's not to be missed!!! Ask them if they offer a "menu dégustation", it's a great way to get a glimpse at the essence of the traditional Greek cuisine, with a twist! Highly recommended!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

In all the sameness of Greek food, this is a great place. True gourmet! We did not expect such a great 10 course dinner in Greece!
