“Nice spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This is a bit different and well worth a visit. Lovely terrace - eating under an enormous fig tree, even on a dull day, was a nice experience. Decor is modern, crisp and clean. Staff very smartly turned out and faultlessly efficient and friendly.

The food is a slightly modern twist on traditional favourites - beautifully cooked and presented (and the menu notes show pride about the provenance of the meat and fish).

The only down side is that it appeared on this occasion to be over priced. We ate light lunches, and in the uk I would have expected to pay half the price that I paid here. Light lunch portions were, in the case of the calamares and the octopus, rather small for the money. It can't be denied that the economic crisis may be to blame for this......

Main courses may present better value for money.

Definitely worth a try if you are not on a tight budget.

“Very nice family reastaurant, in the middle of the old city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Good food, nice atmosphere in this family oriented restaurant. We liked the food, even if you may first think that it is a tourist trap. I would recommend it.

“Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stopped here for a drink as it looked different from all the other restaurants and bars, and was the only place not hassling people to come in. The staff were friendly and location is good, with a little courtyard to the side.

“Really nice food...shame about the price.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Ate here as the menu looked a cut above many of the other generic traditional Greek tavernas. I cannot deny that the food was very good, but the portion sizes were not generous (when I ordered an item under "light meals" on the menu the waitress advised me that the portions were small but this would have made an insubstantial starter) and the meal cost almost twice what we paid for a delicious and filling meal at Koykos the following evening. In short, yummy, but pricey.

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Had a beautiful meal at golden olympiade - thought it was a lovely romantic setting. We had mussels to start - best I've ever had! Main course were steaks - cooked to perfection. Lovely sauce too, though didn't need it as the steaks were cooked so well :)
We had a lovely evening and thought the overall the price was very reasonable, similar to what we would spend at home.
Overall, an excellent restaurant and evening :)
