Our family had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The daily specials were mouthwatering, particularly the grilled squid. The seafood was cooked to perfection overall. The house wines made for a nice pairing. The restaurant staff was highly attentive and accommodating as we celebrated a...birthday. The location tucked back from the Hilton hotel is centrally located and a short 5-10 min walk from the metro. Excellent food, wait staff, and reasonably priced…a strong recommend.More

We go to this restaurant every time we travel to Athens. The food is amazing, Salmon in Lobster sauce & Duck in Plum sauce our favourites are fantastic! The Panacotta is absolutely sensational. We have never been disappointed in this restaurant the service is brilliant....They are helpful, polite and good humored. You are never rushed. If you are looking to celebrate or just to have a really good meal this is definitely the place to go. Book a table (they have an on-line booking system) as this restaurant can get very busy!!More

The music has become far too loud. I have been going to this place for many years and have sent ay visitors to Athens there. We had lunch and Sunday the music gave us a headache and when I asked if they could turn it...down the manage behaved like a lunatic and refused point blank. I will never go back and never recommend it to anyone anymore.More

Not great food but very good and very tasty with excellent service. My wife and I split a Greek salad and still did not finish it. She then had a Greek burger with fries, it comes just the meat, no bun etc. Well flavored and...she ate more than she usually does. I had a very good sea food pasta which had a lot of seafood, and the pasta cooked correctly. The bill with an ok bottle of white and a very good glass of red came to E59. We tipped well and the next thing we knew two ice cream desserts accompanied by two cherry liquors a showed up on the house. Great eveningMore

I just ate at this restaurant because it was right across from my hotel and the reviews were great, so I’m a little confused by my experience. We decided to eat lunch here between touring. We were sat promptly and our waiter took our order....No issues there. We ordered bread a long with our entrees. Bread never made it to our table, no big deal, we just waited for our entrees. Once food arrived it was very good! After our meal is where I have an issue. A young lady (not our server), brought us the check. I looked over the check, just to verify we weren’t charged for the bread we never received. I let her know once I saw it on the check that we never received and it needed to be taken off. She asked me if I was done and slammed closed the check envelope and walked away abruptly with an attitude! Not sure what her deal was! But I made for an unnecessary uncomfortable dining experience. I will not acknowledge what I believe the issue was, but hopefully she was just having a bad day and will have a better one now that we are gone!More

Awesome food, fun variety. We had an omlete appetizer, spaghetti with local cheese melted in it with garlic and basil and a burger. Everything was great. Service seemed a little slow, but then they brought out my spaghetti in a block of cheese and cut...it off from there at the table- wonderful!! We would come back here again!More

We dropped in for appetizers and a drink on Sunday and booked a table for Monday, because we needed to try more! The design and ambience of the restaurant is very chic and upscale, but the pricing is moderate. The menu is extensive without being...overwhelming. We had the melon and prosciutto salad (waiter recommended), the Halloumi salad, the veal liver (waiter recommended), salmon with lobster sauce and vegetables, and the water buffalo kebab. Nothing disappointed and, in fact, everything excelled. The liver, per the two in our party who like liver, was the best either of us have ever had, accented perfection by the oregano sauce. The salmon was perfectly cooked, savory but not heavy with the lobster sauce. The water buffalo kebab was an unknown going in and turned out to be stunning with a light tzatziki and crisp fries. The dinner was completed with Mastika, a digestif, and lemon sorbet. Perfection. Great ambience, excellent service, and food that exceeded expectations. What a great evening!More

This restaurant had the fanciest atmosphere and dining experience from my two weeks in Greece. Beautiful looking restaurant with an awesome outdoor dining area and plenty of indoor dining as well. I’ll start with the bad. The staff is completely overwhelmed with all the customers....It took close to ten minutes after being seated just to get a menu. I had to flag a waiter down to put my order in. The food took a very long time to come out, including the appetizer. The waiters also lack any type of friendliness or show any type of hospitality, a very cold personality in the staff. But even with all of their flaws, one thing that covers a multitude of sins to me is just having good food. And in that category Agora Select excels. We ordered: Handmade sausage - 9 euros: this was a tasty foot long sausage served with French fries. If you appreciate good meat in tube form like myself, you’ll like this dish. FRESH TAGLIATELLE WITH VEAL SCALLOPS- 19 euros: this pasta dish is awesome. If I had to describe the taste it reminded me of a really good pesto sauce with veal, wine, and cherry tomatoes. A must order if you like pasta. PAPPARDELLE WITH PORK SMOKED PANCETTA - 11,20 euros: this was a solid pasta but after eating the aforementioned Tagliatelle, this was only ok. I saw plenty of customers ordering burgers and that’s what I would order next time I come. The burgers are gigantic. Restaurant grades: Service: 5 Atmosphere: 10 Food: 10 Overall: 9More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We were looking for a place that had both traditional Greek food but also a few dishes that were more traditional "American". This restaurant did not disappoint. Everyone in our party was able to find something and everyone enjoyed their...meal. It was a very short walk from the Athens Hilton and had a great atmosphere. It was very slightly upscale but not at an upscale price.More
