This is the second time I've visited Athens, the first being over 2 and a half years ago for a hen party. The food is delicious and plenty of it, the staff are the friendliest people you could wish to meet. They seriously can't do enough for you. It was a slow night (only 2 tables in) which is probably... More

Food: 3/10 Ordered the steak and asked for it rare, it was like stewing steak, flakey and dry. The chicken on the mezze was dry, i get the feeling that most of the food is pre-prepared a day or two prior to being served as they cater for large groups, mainly hen and stags. Service: 4/10 Staff do what they... More

The restaurant is very dated, the ladies toilets were vile, the standard of a dirty social club. They have no information on our reservation or how much deposit we paid, there was not enough seats at our table on arrival. The staff were very inappropriate making sexualised comments. They would not offer table service for drinks! What type of restaurant... More
