It is always the same crowded with people they want to be seen. They have not spent a penny the last 20 years and the set up is really uncomfortable and the tables very small with uncomfortable chairs. The table you get is 40 %...More

Elegant yet casual restaurant in Kolonaki. Rather crowded, but the staff keep up. A good selection of wines, and a varied menu.

It's classic, elegant but also extremely hard to find a normal table and not at the back of the room next to the bathroom. Its the all time "must know/be someone". However, it has a very nice bistro atmosphere and the food is delicious. The...More

I first came here as a teenager. Almost 25 years later Ratka has managed to maintain its reputation as a solid choice in downtown Athens (Kolonaki area more specifically). Situated in a tiny street, this bistro has been a meeting point for business and entertainment...More

Same top quality sonic it opened many decades ago. Excellent food. The elegant owner supervises daily all the tables. The tables are small but this is the philosophy of the place. Some times it becomes crowded. Nice people frequent.

Everything the best by far from the rest! Ratka, the owner, is always there, in order to supervise herself the whole operation, asking her guests if they have any complains. Many times, to the very faithful guests, she is offering the deserts.

The atmosphere is unique, and the crowd is very interesting. It is a posh place for the upper society of Athens, and you can meet from politicians to singers. The food is of very good quality ( from sushi to bon filet and carpaccios) but...More

This is not really a restaurant but a hangout place that serves food. The fillet stake with satay sause was in fact pieces of bad pieces of beef, with some ready made sause and dried noodles that could come out straight out of a packet....More

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighborhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
couple of notable museums and cultural institutions,
which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper
