During our stay in Athens, me and my girlfriends found this restaurant with a wonderful terrasse and interior. The atmosphere there is so welcoming thanks to the owners who make you feel like family. The price point is very reasonable considering the quality and freshness...of the ingredients. Every dish was different and tasty, I strongly recommend trying it out to anyone who is staying in athens!More

We were visiting Greece and stumbled on this non-touristic authentic greek restaurant. The food was so fresh and delicious and the large patio full of flowers and colours is absolutely beautiful. The owners Vivi and Elie also welcomed us so warmly! This is a must...try restaurants for tourists who want to live a truly greek family-like evening. Thank you Vivi and Elie!More

My friends and I were visiting Athens and stumbled upon this jewel of a restaurant. The food was amazing, as well as the service. The servers gave us great recommendations and the owners Elie and Vivi are extremely generous and welcoming. The vegetables they serve...are fresh from their garden which makes all dishes delicious in their unique way. I still crave this place now that I am back in Montreal. It is definitely a must if you are visiting Athens!!!More

A wonderful setting with ample seating inside and out. Tastefully decorated and modern. The food just kept coming and was delicious. The meat was well spiced and not over cooked. The home made bread still warm and tasty. The host was an absolute delight and...recommended other places for us to visit in Athens. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, good value for money.More

We came here by an unusual set of circumstances. Our group of ten were heading to the Plaka area after arriving in Athens, a heavy downpour prevented us from getting there, one of our taxi drivers recommend this restaurant in his neighborhood. We had a...wonderful meal, great hospitality and really enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely go out of our way to visit again.More

Let me inform my readers that i rate the whole experience when i put my review and not only the product. My family visited this restaurant many times this summer. the food quality was very good the size of the dishes was medium but very...good for a restaurant like this . The stuff was polite and helpful. The point is that i had a very bad experience in terms of communication while i was trying to set up a ceremony for my child. We arranged a date with the manager for a 35-40 ppl table. The date was set almost 30 days before before the event and there was no other event planned. Let me inform that i was NEVER asked for a deposit or cash in front to ensure this day(this is clear and there is no miss understanding on that). So i was happy and safe that everything was done. As the days passed and the date was near the manager informed me and my wife that there is another ceremony that had more ppl than ours(number of people changed everytime we spoke and finally told me 90 ppl) and will be hold inside so we have to move our guests outside in the yard under umbrellas. I m talking about noon 14:00, summer in Greece where temperature are over 33 degrees. I told them that this is not what we agreed and i cant put my elder guest in that heat. Also i asked ,what will happen if it rains, to get the answer that the weather will be great(Let me inform you that rained as hell in Athens the day of the ceremony).The answer was so surprising telling me that the other arrangement was earlier done that ours. I reminded him that we had set the date over 30 day ago and there was no other ceremony in that restaurant. I heard so many excuses, one of them was that i have been told about a deposit to secure the date. Ofc that was a lie because the manager never told me and if i had been told ofcource i would have give a deposit cause i had to travel from a far away island for that ceremony that i had planed. So i would take no risk not to give a deposit. The conclusion is that 2 days before the ceremony, after that very bad attitude and communication with the manager i had to cancel the ceremony to that restaurant because they stated things that were out of reality It was a very bad experience for me and my family and i m happy that i arranged to another restaurant avoiding the flood.More
