I read great reviews that I cannot confirm. My honest appreciation is to rank it as a middle of the road taverna. Nice neighborhood of Psiry, menu similar to many places in Athens and elsewhere in Greece. To make a long story short, average experience:...nice grilled veggies and dolmas, moussaka like in many other tavernas, really nothing special. average lamb, too warm red wine. I acknowledge the kindness of the staff and the dessert and local spirit on the house. Overall nothing more and nothing less than 3 over 5More

Reviewed March 11, 2022 via mobile

This place has super friendly service and great atmosphere, and is a very popular high end Greek restaurant. The food is clearly above the norm, as is the wine list, and yet the place feels very humming and down to Earth. Go there, you will...not regret it, be it solo, couples, friend groups. Not suitable for families w children (in my opinion), and not suitable for wheelchair users.More

Tsatsiki - excellent. Tossed green salad with dried figs - fantastic. Moussaka - wow! Especially liked that the thick layer of bechamel on top had the texture of a creme brulee. Service -very professional, attentive and friendly. Recommend!

Best food I've had in a long time. It was well cooked and very tasty. The service was also very quick and the waiters were polite. The free dessert was also great :) I will definitely come back here every time I visit Athens.

My wife and I had just arrived in Athens and we were looking for an authentic restaurant to enjoy our first dinner in Greece. Bandiera was a recommended establishment. We were warmly greeted by Andreas who sold us on eating there with his charm, wit...and excellent salesmanship. We had a fabulous dinner of Chicken Souvlaki and I had the Lamb. We do not speak any Greek but everyone in the the place tried hard to accommodate us. We felt humbled and very welcomed. We hope to bring our friends, who are arriving later, to Bandiera, so they can experience the great service. Such a treat.More

Incredibly well presented, exceptional food - fresh and beautifully tasty ... prices more than fair and with complimentary water, this restaurant is most certainly worthy of repeat visits. Excellent service provided - highly recommend.

Had a table booked and a really warm welcome from staff. The service is excellent, the food is delicious and the staff made a fuss over my birthday, with another free desert with candle and sang happy birthday to me. Could not have been happier...and well recommend this restaurant.More

Superb lunch. The service was incredible kind and in time (they even invited us to drinks because they felt had taken too much time when we thought the contrary!). Very correct food for the price, tried the musaka and the lamb!! Would recommend and indeed...come back!More

Decent lunch stop not far from Monastiraki Square and the Ancient Agora, which we had just visited. We arrived as they opened and were cautiously seated. Not as welcoming as other restaurants on our visit to Athens, but service was ok. The food was quite...good. Overall, a decent stop, but might either go later in the day after they have woken up or look elsewhere.More
