Service as well as the food reflect the low price. For a fast meal it was really ok, but do not book a table for a date.

Had lunch there twice, once with the family on our arrival day and another day with colleagues. On both occasions I had the tuna salad, it was tasty, generous portion and only ~7 euros. Kids were happy with their Gyros.

We had an excellent Greek dining experience at this restaurant located in central Berlin. The menu is diverse and covers everything you can ask about in Greek restaurants out of Greece. All food was well cooked, the service attentive, two rounds of ouzo were served 'on the house'. We may be back soon.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere when you walk by, and you expect that this will be a nice place for a Greek dinner. Unfortunately this is the worst Greek dinner I have ever had. The meat for the Gyros was dry and fatty at the same time, the rice was half cooked, the Souvlaki tasted of nothing, and even... More

Had an early dinner here after visiting museums not too far away. We have found it challenging to find more than 1 or 2 fish dishes on menus here in Berlin. What a find this place is. Fresh seafood prepared simply and deliciously tasted fantastic. The side dishes were about average. I tried a Greek beer upon recommendation and it... More

This was a great find so close to our hotel. Plenty of seating, including outside. We ate here 3 out of 4 of our evenings in Berlin as we found the food and service so good that we didn't need to go elsewhere. As in the title the portions were extremely generous, there's plenty of choice and the food is... More

Enjoyed a late evening meal here (open every day 12pm-12am). Solid Greek food at a great value. The tzatziki was a highlight.

Had to book as can be very busy. They had a big screen TV for the locals to watch their win. The drinks were very good and the food was OK but not exactly as per the menu, not sure if that was down to the English translation or not.

We don't normally visit restaurants like this, normally we go to restaurant we know but what a find. This is across the street from the Intercontinental hotel. Been there two nights in a row and both nights it has been good, good food and a good atmosphere. Staff make you laugh, they speak English and will joke with you. Food... More

Across from Intercontinental. Nothing fancy, plain simple, Greek and German of adequate quality. I will not go out of the way to go here, but if you are in this area, go.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
