We came here three times during our stay and every meal was excellent. The service is relaxed and friendly, and the food very tasty with a creative twist. Made a nice change from feta salads and souvlaki.

Sterile atmosphere. Terribly clumsy food with overpowering ingredients made from concentrates. You can eat much better in Athens than this- it was by far the worst of 4 meals I have had so far in this city. They need to learn to simplify and refine...More

More than excellent food with unique tastes. It is our favourite. The service was a bit slow and not so polite this time but when the food is delicious you do not ask for more.

We were very lucky to find a table in this place on New Year's Eve because we hadn't booked. The food was really flavoursome. It is Greek food but served in a modern way. The menu describes the food really well and details where the...More

We visited the place during not peak hours so it was calm and quiet. The service was polite and friendly. We tried several plates. Most of them were great, though the portions were on on the rather small side. The veal with marrons was probably...More

This place was recommended to me by a friend who lives in Athens. The place was very nice inside, the menu was interesting as it was Greek meals with a slight twist. The staff were very lovely and welcoming. I would go back here again...More

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a

Downtown, busy and small family restaurant, with a few tables outside. Fresh, local food with a twist, cooked with love and best quality ingredients. It is placed among cafes and bars, so it is the right place to feel the rythm of the city!
