Absolutely delicious authentic Greek restaurant! We first visited in August 2020 and had to be back two years later to have it again! It was just as delicious as we remembered! The owner and staff were a delight and fed us well. We would recommend...to anyone looking for fresh food and a pleasant Greek experience!More

This was our second visit to this restaurant since last year. The setting and location are great, and so was the tasty food. The waiter was also lovely and accommodating. We didn't like the host who was somewhat rude, and the fact that the bill...was written in Greek, even though 99% of the visitors only speak/read English.More

Excellent food and hospitality, enough for us to go twice. My teen son loved the food too! Slightly off the main trek but worth coming here. The sea bass is particularly good.

What a find!! We were overwhelmed with all the choices of restaurants in Athens but found this gem on TripAdvisor. We wanted authentic food and that is exactly what we got from the owner’s family farm. We were treated so special and all of our...questions were answered so kindly. The prices were so affordable for such fresh food that we could order multiple dishes. We will remember this meal forever! PS. And the location is 5 star!More

After an evening of sightseeing we were getting really hungry and didn't have enough energy to keep wondering around until we found the perfect place so we went with what was the first decent place we stumbled on. It looked like a completely tourist trap...especially considering it's location at the base of the Acropolis but in fact it wasn't that at all. Delicious, simple, tapas-size dishes ... we ordered two salad/appetizer size dishes and one main which was more than enough for us. Didn't see any grilled fish on the menu but clearly it was available as a daily special since we saw a few dishes at other peoples' tables ... looked amazing. Good things come to those who ask ... great energetic vibe at this place and it looked like it was also a good place just to sit and have a drink.More

Authentic original place ... nice scenery too. The coffee was just ok and the service as well. What's nice there is the surrounding and the atmosphere. We paid around 5 eur per person.

This cute little place serves up a smaller menu of traditional Greek fare. Everything we ordered was delicious, from a salad to the moussaka (you should definitely order the moussaka), and orange pie for dessert. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I’m a little...sad that we discovered it on our last night in Athens because I definitely would have gone back!More

Paul and Louise review 29 and 30 May 2022: we visited this wonderful restaurant twice, once for dinner and then for lunch the next day. A Greek colleague had called from London to book a table and when we arrived we were treated like royalty...by Georgio the owner. The food is traditional Greek food such as gyros, meat balls, Greek salad and all of it was incredibly fresh tasting and delicious. At lunch we had some excellent homemade tzatziki and taramasalata with pitta bread. The restaurant is in a charming corner of Athens just below the Acropolis. The service was superb and we were treated to a digestif and a slice of cake at the end of the meals we had there. We would recommend without hesitation.More

This place breaths the real Plaka vibe. The restaurant is located on one of the many stair streets of Plaka and it was a joy to just sit there. The menu was quite limited but what they served tasted well. Real Greek dishes for Greek...prices. Personnel was friendly.More

This was our first meal in Greece. We had checked into hotel and found our way to the Acropolis. After all that walking and sightseeing, we decided we needed a snack. We stumbled onto this little gem on our walk. Great vibe, great service. The...food was delicious and perfect except way too much. Greeks serve big portions. I had a sangria here better than I’ve ever had. The whole experience was amazing!!!!More

This was a Rick Steve’s recommendation and I have to say it does not disappoint. It’s such a cute little off the beaten path restaurant that you don’t want to miss. Please get the Moussaka. You won’t regret it. We are still thinking about it...2 weeks later and are going to attempt making it at home but let’s be honest. It will never be as great.More
