The location of this restaurant can't be beat; it's about a block or two off the Acropolis and the third floor terrace (which is, by far, where you should dine in this 3-floor restaurant) has the most amazing views of the ruins, which are lit up at night. The food is very good and service was near impecable. We had [as appetizers] the stuffed wine leaves, the haloumi grilled cheese, and the fava bean "hummus" (I don't see it on the menu on their website - but seems to be a staple at all the Greek restaurants we went too). All the apps were solid - the wine leaves stuffed w/ the mince meat and rice were the best! Since our group had five women we decided to split the "Meat for 2" entree (which, btw, is definitely enough for more than two -- unless you have the appetite of Hulk Hogan!). We also had a Greek salad (average/good) and the Lamb wrapped in wine leaves and stuffed with cheese (very good). Overall, I was pleased with our decision to try this restaurant. The host and the servers were all very friendly and accomodating. If I could rate it 4.5 stars, I would!

Our experience was memorable because this restaurant sits underneath the acropolis. Watching the sunset on the Parthenon is quite breathtaking. We requested and were seated on the rooftop terrace. The service was superb. Our servers weren't only knowledgeable, they were extremely friendly and eager to please.

The food was fresh and well seasoned. The spinach pie was perhaps the best I have eaten anywhere. The grilled garlic bread was delicious and the desserts were extremely good. I was disappointed in the grouper, which was meaty and overcooked.

Our reservations were very early and we were forth most part the only diners on the terrace. When making reservations, remember to time them with the setting of the sun on the Parthenon.

Despite not having made a reservation, we were able to get a table for two, thanks to the manager. Food was excellent, wine was great and the view gives the finishing touch.

Very solid Greek food with an amazing view of the Acropolis. Servings were generous, food was well prepared, wine list was adequate. Service was wonderful, even when you are up on the roof. Make sure you call well in advance to get a rooftop table. It's worth it!
