Really enjoyed our dinner here. We did the mixed grill for two that had a little of everything on it. Best way to try all their different meats. Very reasonable. Our waitress was super friendly. She spoke and understood English well.

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
