Friendly service, fresh food, casual relaxed atmosphere with an easy going vibe for a place in the Plaka. The chicken souvlaki was perfectly cooked, very tender and moist, same for the chicken gyro (not the processed stuff we get back home). Ask for ice for...the drinks and they bring a small bucket of it! The Greek salad was fantastic, big enough to share, fresh crunchy veggies, excellent feta ands olive oil - delish! The only thing that I’d complain about is the French fries were a bit soggy.More

If you get hungry while shopping around the flea market area of Athens, Greece, this is the restaurant to visit. Authentic Greek Foods are offered and deliciously prepared. We tried the Souvlaki chicken, Moussaka, and Greek Salad and we were pleasantly impressed with the quality...and the price. For all of the food we ate we only paid $27 approximately. We had so much food that we were not able to finish it all. Come visit and see and taste for yourself.More

We ate here because we were hoping for a restaurant in Plaka that was not serving tourist food and frozen seafood. It did not disappoint. Basic Greek food with grilled fresh seafoods (get the octopus) and meats and Greek specialties. Friendly staff with good English....We ate several meals in Plaka at traditional Greek restaurants. This was the best.More

Started with excellent chicken wings as an appetizer. But our main course arrived before we could finish the chicken wings. My lamb with lemon was overdone, and dry. The bone within was broken, so I had to deal with splinters in my meat.

Pre-cruise walking tour of business led us the Plaka district. We were hungry and saw Erato. I was a little hesitant since we are in the middle of a touristy area but was pleasantly surprised. The service, food and prices were all excellent. The portions...very big. We had the hummus as a starter followed by a Greek salad and pork souvlaki which came with hand cut fries. I would definitely recommend it!More

Brilliant restaurant on a busy shopping street; step inside and it's much quieter. Friendly welcoming staff who helped recommend an amazing Feta cheese meze in Phyllo with honey and sesame. We shared this alongside a Greek salad and fried potatoes (chips). All the food was...perfect and the cheese was incredible with a sweet but not overly so honey drizzle. Very clean throughout and house wine was very nice and a great price. Highly recommend 😊More

This restaurant is located in the middle of Plaka, on the ancient street of Adrianou (Hadrian, the Roman Emperor). Nice to sit there and watch the bustling shopping activity. We went straight to the main courses. Companion 1 had the veal on potato purée, companion...2 wanted the Pizza Special (a handsome serving). I ordered the Mouscharisia Brizola which should translate to Beef Steak. However I was served a large pork chop instead of the beef. My company was in a relative hurry, so there was noe time to complain, and the pork was very nicely cooked. The bill we got still had the price for the non existent beef, however the specification on the bill said: "Miscellaneous", while the other items where specified in accordance with the menu. This leads me to believe that the mistake was noticed and that the restaurant tried to hide it instead of taking a few euros off the bill. I should have complained, but we had to leave quickly for another engagement. It has to be said that the food was really good and the staff were friendly enough. The hand sanitizer dispenser on the table and the salt shaker were dirty. Minus 1 point.More
