Starters were ok but the lamb kleftiko was terrible, just bone and fat. Most expensive meal we've had in Athens and definitely the worst.

We had family dinner on the new years eve. I arranged a reservation after looking at the comments on trip advisor. The restaurant staff helped me via messenger the reservation. We experienced a typical Greek taverna experience with live music and dancers. We also have...a special thank to our service man Yannis.More

We loved this place. Great food, live music, cosy atmosphere right off sidewalk. Reasonably priced. Our server, Bagelis, was great too. He was so nice, answered all our questions, and had a great sense of humor. We really recommend the bread dip (it was delicious!)...We’d definitely return to this place.More

Let me start by saying this is a tourist trap. The live music and dancers were great. The vibe was amazing and the food was good but the service was bad. Waitress was really not friendly and was pressing us to order more. The prices...are really expensive compared to the other resterants. It's worth visiting only for the vibe and if you know you will spent a lot and get bad service. Also there is a minimum order of 40 euros.More

Amazing spot just off Monastiraki Square. Perfect position for people watching, amazing hosts. We had live music and Greek dancing on a Sunday evening. The food was wonderful, the small meat platter was pretty enough for 2 and carafes of wine! A must-eat place!

The live music was the bait. The restaurant was full. We were seated outside on the walkway about 2030. 2115 our order wasn’t taken so we decided to leave only to be seated back down and promised prompt service. Dinner arrived on our table at...2230. Latest dinner I have eaten. Food was delicious extremely tasty. We ordered the mani salad, dolmades, mousaka and lamb souvlaki- 1 beer 1 Coke Zero 1 soda water =60€More

An authentic Greek place, with live music.The service was very good and the staff very friendly. The music gets you out of your chair and calls you to dance.

We had a really nice meal. The service was fantastic. Waiters were very friendly. We were not waiting long for our food at all. The food itself was excellent. The live music was brilliant too! It did take a while to get someone to bring...us the bill and get it paid, but they’re a small team and when it’s busy you can see them all working very hard so try and be patient with them :)More

Atmosphere is decent, I’ll give them that. Nice live music. The service is non-existent. Expect to wait around trying to signal a waiter to pay the bill for some awful awful food you probably didn’t enjoy, or even eat. What Greek restaurant cooks “kebab” in...the oven, not on coals/grill? Term “kebab” used lightly, it was pretty much frozen hamburger meat squeezed out into a sausage shape. See photo attached. Dirty plates that seem to be wiped down with grease on arrival. Pints of Mythos that smell stale and dusty. Probably the worst meal of our trip in Athens, but also astonishingly one of our worst ever too.More
