Expensive for the size of portions. Taste was ok, but no reason to come back. 3 prawns in main dish is not much. Service was between good and bad. Clean toilets anyway.

It is the best place to eat Greek dishes. I am from Turkey and I like eating Greek foods because all of them are so similar. As to restaurant, the hoster is so hospitable. all of the things are so good such as caciki, taramosalad,kalamaraki and so forth. The prices are so affordable in the district of Helsinki. I strongly... More

Excellent authentic Greek food. Best food I've eaten in a long time. The location is good if you're checking out the Kallio area.

I have visited here a few times. The atmosphere, food, funny waiters and prices all together make this a good choose. Here you can feel like being in taverna in Greece. I recommend to pick different kind of starters as a main dish or vegetarian plate or fish with salad.

We had a dinner for 12 in Zorbas, and the reservation was made in advance. When reserving the table the owner asked whether we are hurry to the theater near by, but as we were not, they did not ask an order in advance. The restaurant is old, and has seen its best days long time ago. Still: the food... More

I visited the restaurant with my greek friend and we tried stifado and kleftiko. Very good quality, cooked very well, but actually, my friend as being a greek cook said, that one was lamb in tomato sause and the other was lamb in ladokola. Servise was good and the greek waiter from Kos was so kind and friendly. Thank you... More

I spend a nice name giving party once here, so for a sunday lunch we decided to head here. We tried some meat dishes and tzatsiki. 90% of the time, waitress was missing and it took very long before we got our food. No bill were presented at all, just a sum. Price for two was 64eur! For this price,... More

We selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, but unfortunately this one was one out of seven restaurant ratings that mislead us totally. 9 out of our 12 people in our group found the food tasteless. Especially the Psaria mix grill (seafood) was a bid disappointment. I do not remember tasting such a tasteless seafood portion for years. The meat... More
