It's an ok place. Not fancy, ok food, basic service, not pricey. The location is also not that great.

For delicious Greek food in a fabulous setting go to Drakou St in Koukaki. where you will find Ambrosia. Exactly as you come out of Fix Metro you will find their tables set up and ready for you. The menu is large and the staff will often invite you inside to view the food. Drakou street is a pedestrian street... More

My husband and I walked over to this great spot for dinner. Everything we order was delicious! I had the chicken gyro portion, my husband had the pork gyro portion, and the house rose. Very inexpensive, casual and quite tasty.

Very tasty grilled food. Service was a little slow and and kind a weird for a non-Greek but totally acceptable. I would visit again.

A lovely setting in a little square. There is a real buzz about this cafe. Good menu, with good quality local food. All fresh and all delicious. Waiters are not especially friendly, but they serve efficiently. Hence the four stars rather than 5. Generous portions that we ended up ordering too much food. They happily wrapped up all that was...

We loved sitting under a large umbrella between green hedges on sides on a hot evening. We ordered village/greek salad (mediocre at best in terms of the ingredient quality, almost no herbs and no vinegar), pork steak (overcooked but good flavour) and a fish (good). The prices were higher and food less good than what we encountered on Crete in... More

We found this restaurant by accident, however it was awesome. Their meatballs are amazing and the staff understood English fairly well and have accomodated their menus with pictures to help tourists. We made a special trip back for a second meal.
