My husband and I came here on our first night in Athens upon review from our AirBnB host - we were so glad we did! The stuffed tomatoes were absolutely delicious, and our entrees (Rooster Bardouniotikos + Seafood Kritharoto) were really good too. The location...was great - super busy and lively, with great outdoor seating, and the owner stopped by at one point to give us free dessert and tsipouro. The wine was great, too. 10/10 would recommend.More

Multiple locals recommended this restaurant on our first trip to Athens and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, so I do not understand some of the reviews. It must have been a bad night. Our service could not have been more attentive. I...had the Tzitzikas salad which was very fresh and while it said it was for two, four of us ate it and it was plenty. I also had the 700 gram pork steak, and it was the finest I have ever had, and the seasoning was perfect.While I couldn’t eat it all, it was worth experiencing for only 15 euros. Only one block off Syntagma Square, it is a must stop. Call ahead for a reservation.More

Last night in Greece with a group of twelve women, this restaurant did not disappoint! Excellent food, great service! Lamb chops were perfect. Greek salad was the best we had all week. Waiters were attentive. Vibrant atmosphere.

I ordered 3 dishes; fried cheese with honey and bacon, mini pies, and meatballs. Everything was very good, ordering 3 dishes was a little too much food for just me. I originally sat outside but it got so hot I asked to move inside, they...helped me move and were very nice about it. Some may find the prices a little high but I thought the price was fair considering the quality and how much food I got.More

How can I describe the experience with any other words except excellent! We were a very diverse group of friends from the UK, Thailand, Honk Kong, Spain, France and everyone loved it! The best advertisement for Greek cuisine. Bravo to the chefs and serving staff!

Were sent to this place by a local guide. The food was very tasty especially the fish, and the appetizers. They had a mistake in the kitchen which caused us to wait extra time. The owner offered us desert free of charge

Bad bad experience with service, saw couples walk out due to inattentive waiter. Walks right by you to wait on table next to you. Food is good, but the service experience is unacceptable. Waited 10 minutes to pay bill, we were going to walk out....Yelling at manager now as I type this. Waited 10 min to order drinks, never got to order entrees, and decided to leave.More

I tried this restaurant based on other reviews but was disappointed. The service initially seemed rushed but once I was served my main course the staff seemed to disappear. I ordered the lamb special but was advised they were out. I opted for the pork...chops. While the carrots and potatoes were delicious the meat was over cooked and dry. This may have been the most disappointing meal I had during my 17 days in Greece.More

The food was exceptional. We love Greek food and this was particularly delicious. The staff were very friendly. Our server was perhaps not as attentive as we would hope for but was very helpful when we called him over. I give a five star rating...based on the food alone.More

Mastihato - chicken on kataifi with mastic sauce is divine. If you like Masticha and need a break from all the pork and lamb, this dish is for you. One of the best things I’ve eaten in 10 days in Greece! Bustling atmosphere, reasonable prices,...highly recommend!!More

We ate here during our 4 night stay in Athens at the recommendation of our Airbnb host and we were not disappointed. This was one of the best meals we ate in Athens. The kebab and burger were excellent. The house wine was lovely and...the staff were really nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was also very reasonably priced.More

Recommended by our guide for Greek home cooking. (In general she said to avoid restaurants with elegant/modern chairs and go for places with old-style wooden or woven chairs. Never missed following her advice.) Indoor and very pleasant outdoor seating. Long line by the time we...left. We had a selection of "small plates" which were by no means small. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Wonderful meal!More

We tried this restaurant for the first evening in Athens, as it was suggested by our host. Very nice greek dishes, very well served. Service to be improved, as we ordered dishes and drinks we never received (and not billet though). Overall a good experience.

I found a menu online but it is in Greek. I'm sure there must be an English one somewhere.
