Beautiful service, delicious vegan combo plate, and perfect location near the Plaka and Acropolis. Prices were good on top of it. Highly recommended.

Near the Acropolis, you can sit outside and people watch, whilst also having great traditional Greek food.

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