Dear sir, we remember you very well. Your basic problem was the olive oil on the table. There are laws in our country and we are responsible to follow them. This new law is on from January of 2018 and does not allow us to...More

Could you please describe us the things you ordered and we did not have them? How difficult is for you to understand that some times the machines have problems and it is impossible to get a credid card while the restaurant face a such situation.

I had dinner there because they showed a flag of “2017 excellence by Trip Advisor”. Stuffed tomatoes were ok, but octopus was a disaster: badly cooked, almost burned, with a salad on the side that was as cold as an ice cream. Then the check:...More

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
