Simply exquisite. We were very impressed by the tastes. It is a high end restaurant, definitely recommended due to the high quality of tastes.

Restaurant is chic, has a nice vibe but portions are disappointing. My girlfriend ordered a Tuna Tartare and it was the smallest portion we’ve ever seen in our life, a circle in a small plate, not to talk about the price 15€. Main courses were...fine but to be honest we were expecting more from a high end restaurant especially cause we’re traveling and we’ve seen restaurants proving a better dining experience for half the price of the end bill 100€. Would not recommend it unless you want to spent a large amount of money for eating nothing..More

I was there for a business dinner after a congress. The atmosphere is really nice, the booking went smooth even though I requested a change on the last minute and they seem to keep up with the health protocols. The food was amazing. All the...dishes were tasty and me and my guests really enjoyed everything, the starters, the fish, the desserts. Highly recommended for business and special occasions.More

The positives are that you really can’t fault the food. Beautifully presented, with interesting flavours and showcasing local ingredients. We also enjoyed an excellent bottle of Greek Wine. The problem lies with the service. Once seated, we were pretty much ignored through the whole dinner....The Waiter who took our order had little knowledge of the menu. Food came out promptly, but served without any finesse. We had to pour our own wine and water. Once our main course was cleared, we were totally ignored and not offered dessert. We then asked for the bill and left. Not even a thank you for coming. For the price charged, the restaurant really needs to address the service, as it totally lets down the experience.More

A fabulous start to our trip to Greece! A nice alfresco dining experience in a park located next to the restaurant. Our service. by Stratos, was professional and attentive. His friendliness and charm was well appreciated by us both. Our meal began with an Amouse...Bouche of a deconstructed Spanakopita! Our choice of wine for the eve was an excellent Greek Rose. Our first course was freshly baked Sourdough bread made for this restaurant. We then dined on Warm Octopus Salad and a Cretan Salad. The Octopus was very tender having been cooked in Sousvide style by the chef. The main courses were a Grilled Tuna with Avocado, Quinoa, Seaweed and Granny Smith Apples and Lamb. Neck with Bulgar, Eggplant, Harrisa Chili Paste and Raisin Lemon Sauce. The Lamb, again cooked Sousvide, was exceptional. Our desserts included a deconstructed Pineapple Baklava and a Yogurt Mousse with Syrah msrinsted Strawberries, Meringues and Rosemary Sorbet. A glass of Mucat Grand Cru dessert dine finished the evening, This is a wonderful restaurant and we highly recommend it if you are in Athens!More

For over 100 years, this establishment has been in business. However, “business” is not the operative word. No, the word that best describes this fine dining restaurant is “passion.” The ingredients are as fine as one can get; the ambiance can shame many so-called “trendy”...eateries in Manhattan or in Paris and the food is simply sublime. The chef here is an artist with flavors, pairings and presentation. Moreover, the service is impeccable. Truly, if you’re seeking Athens’ best restaurant, this should be at the very top of the list. Bravo!More

Hi American Gourmet! Yes it is possible but only on Sunday 13.00-17.30 and it is better to reserve before at +30-210-4612457 in the terrace. Tomorrow at lunch time will be 26 degrees celsius in Piraeus. Enjoy it! Ciao and... More
