Another great restaurant in the area of Plaka, on the steps towards the Acropolis, leading away from the Cathedral. Staff exceedingly friendly and eager to ensure the meal is enjoyed by all, as indeed it was. Tonight there was live music from inside the restaurant...More

We wandered into this restaurant one night and were very glad we did! Hidden along one of the winding streets away from Plaka and toward the Roman Forum its a gem. The waiter Vassily was fantastic and very attentive with a great sense of humour....More

The restaurant is located on the stair case street (Don't know how to explain it exactly) Especially if you go here during the night, you can feel the amazing night vibe and the Greek traditional live music. The food was really good. I had nectar...More

The food was good, prices are not too high. Great atmospere created by live music and Vassyli (waiter). Eveyone clapped to music, some even danced. Vassyli is a good spirit of this place, such a friendly guy.
