“Fresh fish ,yes. Great restaurant ,no.”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

I've been there with a friend.
Both of us proffesionals with restaurants and customer service.
Being in a very good mood we started chating with the stuff trying to impart some of it.
The stuff remained gentle but not communicative.

We ordered a salad, a main and a provencial white.
I didn't expect the fish to be fresh but it was! Not in a very gourmet cooking way but fine.
The salad fresh as well.
We had the usual problem with the wine. They don't have a clue about their wines or the opening of a bottle.

The atmosphere is nice. You have the feeling that they tried hard to achieve this relaxed and marine like sence ,but something is not there..
One more thing made a very bad impression to me are the customers of this place.
It's a posh place and the people frequented are trying to prove them selves above all.
It's not nice to have someone beside you having a huge ego mocking the waiters.

This place it's pricey though. It worths eating some fresh fish but not in a price like this.
Anyway ,if you definetely want to eat fresh fish ,clean and nicely cooked this is a good choise.

“Superb quality seafood, worth the price”
Reviewed December 12, 2010

The quality of the fish and the seafood at this restaurant is exceptional and the dishes are very inventive. We shared 4 starters between 2 and this was more than enough food. The service is excellent - the staff know the menu well and made good recommendations. They also recommended a very good and relatively inexpensive wine. The atmosphere is excellent, buzzy and stylish without being painfully cool or intimidating. Other reviews have suggested this restaurant is over priced but we felt it was priced similarly to other high end restaurants in Athens but with much better quality food, so good value for money. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality seafood and fish expect to become a regular customer myself.

“Very tasty, very groovy, very expensive!!”
Reviewed October 2, 2009

Been there, loved the food, the service, but not the atmosphere and...the cost!
It's a Greek elegant fish restaurant in the center of Athens, quite near the constitution square.
The service is slow, but good time enough to enjoy the change of dishes.
Recommend the "htenia sharas" and risotto with seafood. Some delicious desserts as well.
I like the idea of what they offer at the end, bowl with ice and different kind of snaps to wash the fish taste out.
