“Good for Athens, but not world class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I am not sure what I expected here. I thought the food was good, but it was by no means the best meal of my life or anything close to that. My scallops were delicious, but my husband was a bit underwhelmed by his dinner. His shrimp were not cleaned and while the waiter said it had been a matter of discussion for a long time in the kitchen and he would be happy to comp the meal, he never did remove from it from our bill. We were there over a long, enjoyable evening with friends and ordered apps, dinner, wine and dessert. I am not in a hurry to return though. The food wasn't so good that we could not have just as great an evening out with friends elsewhere.

“Best food in athens period”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We usually go to the five and ten for something special or a nice night away from the kids. The food is the best and they have the best raw oysters in athens. The price is fair considering it is fine dining. If you are traveling to athens or live here I would definitely go.

“Got to Stop Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is the place to go for special occasions. Its has the known chef and the reputation. Not cheap for Athens, but not bad for folks use to big city prices. Interesting menu and I have not had a disappointing meal.

“always nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This is a place where you can't really go wrong with the food you order. They always whip something up which is refreshingly nice and novel. I have bee there a few times and I never disappointed!
