It is a very elegant Restaurant with qualitative products, a great atmosphere and great service. The prices are affordable and they represent quite good the excessive portions of food.

Rang at pretty much the last minute to get a table for myself and a colleague on a Thursday night... service was great on the phone, and sensational once we arrived. Slow cooked lamb was outstanding as was my companions veal cheeks, the wine list was great and our selection was delish... will definitely come back next time I'm in... More

Nice atmosphere !Nice red wine !The service is friendly but not so perfect. We were waiting our friends about 30 mins. Normally we will get some bread to eat first. We didn't get it till the appetizer came. For the rank number one from the book , it doesn't reach that high for me.

Made reservations for a group of 10 people - table was only prepared for 8. Waiter was not at all friendly, very stressed. Yes it was busy but they should know that as you have to make a reservation because it is always full. The ordered Calamari was much too salted, not eatable - one of us was served a... More

Make sure you have a reservation. Good food, rather pricey. The restarant is quiet, excellent if you want to have dinner and talk with your guests.

Very dissapointing service - we went 10 km for this restaurant, called in advance to make sure we got a table and a baby chair, got reassurance that for sure there's all waiting for us. Arrived to know that there wasn't any available... Had to look for another place last minute.. Very dissapointed! Greeeks are usually famous for great hospitality... More

For someone that Mediterranean and Balkan food are very close to his heart visiting this restaurant was a great experience. The atmosphere of warm, friendly place with good food and affordable pricing.

We are Greeks, and we have been in several greek restaurants in central Europe. This one is by far the best and by far the closest to the real greek cuisine! Amazing food, incredible variety of choices and very nice atmosphere at a very very central location! Very close to the main commercial street, zielstrasse i think. Highlight - not... More

I have been there thrice. I have always been delighted. Food is excellent both the main dishes and the wide selection of appetizers they have. I normally i have fish. The fish is always extremely fresh. Squid, cutlefish and octopus are extremely tender. But it is also very nicely served with a combination of side dishes and spices. Salads are... More

My personal experience there, took me like 15 min to get a table, Probably because i did not speak German. But german customers coming in without reservation were seating straightway. The service was quite slow and unprofessional. And the whole experience seemed quite pretentious. The positive points are that the food was really good, and the whole setting of the... More
