Take your time when going here. There is so much to see inside this shop combined restaurant. They sell all types of olive oil, spreads, dips, salt and other delicacies. Yoleni’s served us a delicious but simple lunch; I recommend the four Greek cheese pizza....I will definitely come back here again.More

We went here as a group dinner after a conference, seating was not great - all squashed up and no room to move. It clearly was not suitable for a party of 8 or more. There was no atmosphere and starters were brought out the...same time as mains so it was all abit cramped on the table and didn’t have a relaxed chatty atmosphere as you felt rushed.More

Excellent Greek food and drinks. I recommend Greek pastry for breakfast. The only thing I didn't like is that they still use plastic straws.

Yagos helped us find some olive oil to take home with us. He also piqued our curiosity with decadent chocolate and even some lovely scented soaps hand made there in Athens. Not only did we have fun with Yagos there in the market, but we...brought back some great products. We used one of the oils with an avocado, cucumber, tomato, cilantro salad. I had made the salad many times before, but with the oil it was so much better. Thank you for the great experience Yagos. Sincerely Matt and LindseyMore

Highly recommend stopping in to dine and/or shop. I had intended to only stop here for a quick lunch but Yagos warmly greeted me as I entered the shop and invited me to sample a tasty fig product. After an educational and charming exchange, I...ended up purchasing a little feast of cheese, crackers, and wine to accompany the fig. All recommended by a very knowledgeable Yagos. He’s a treasure!More

After many years I suddenly decided that I would like to have an Entrecote Caffe de Paris and since I heard that Yoleni's had opened a separate dining area which only serves this incredible dish. The service was excellent, the food was exceptional and the...total atmosphere was warm and friendly. The price is on the very high level but well worth it for special occasions.More

Not a restaurant but a gastronomy center with a separated area when you comfortably have food. Very good choice of salads and pitas - tried both with high satisfaction!

You can be informed about the renovation on Yoleni's Social Media and on their TripAdvisor page, in the "About" section. The Flagship store will reopen mid September.
