“Hopeless service and short-changing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

To start with the positive: the food was quite OK, and I also found the prices decent. However, maybe the most hopeless service I have ever experienced in a Greek restaurant. While other places there is a dedicated person taking care of your table and things usually work well in the old-fashioned way, in this place the staff uses radio-communication for their "organization". It looks great and cool when you ask about something and they use the mic like in a spy movie to give messages, but when subsequently nothing happens it becomes less impressive. When I was there it even looked like they were over-staffed, however they were all standing together talking with each other in the other part of the restaurant, so no help in that. It took me 20 minutes just to get the menu (and I know, I should have left by then), and same for getting the bill. I guess by that point they knew there would be no tip so I got back just 24 of the 25 euros I was supposed to receive in change...

“A must if you are in the area! Great seafood and amazing value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I have lived in Greece and I have visited tens of restaurants in many different cities but this place really tops them all. Amazing seafood, everything we ordered was great!
The atmosphere is nothing to rave about, but it still has the typical Greek charm. We arrived at 9 and it was full, mostly with Greek people (that's always a good sign in a touristy place).
Excellent value for money, unbelievable, actually!
Service was slow, but everyone was really friendly.
Can't wait to return.

“Fish and starters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Just in the center glyfada, very nice ,cosy good service. We had three starters, kalamari, and red mullet. All we had was perfect- paid resonable bill. Staff was nice and interested in our demands. I highly recomend sardelaki, and hope to go there again.

Had a great dinner!
The service was really fast & friendly and the food was great!
