“Super tasty dinner”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

As the title says, a great super tasty dinner we had. My girlfriend and I went to Lithos last Christmas' eve and enjoyed a lot. Excelent service, food and atmosphere. I've been to a few restaurants in Greece and this one was one of the best ones. The mousaka was something else!
We ate a lot and spent around 66 eur, but you can eat great for half of that. Just go!

“What a gem!”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

This is not an easy to find place. So,get a Google map print out if you can.
From the Monastraki Square, you go through a few dark streets(felt safe) and end up in a nice, open square with many restaurants and shops.

The food was good, the service excellent. It was December, but one could still sit outside. Coming from Chicago this was a treat. Our waiter handled all the tables outside by himself and in my opinion,looked like the hardest working men in Greece. If more Greeks were like him,probably Greece would not have the economic problems they have(Joke). I believe his name was Vasiliu (?). He got a good tip from me but the young owner should follow up with a good raise too!

“Find the Greek passion for their music.”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Lithos has kept the passion for live Greek lieka music, wine and food in Psirri. Sad that Psirri is not the lively-music underground district of just a few years ago, but Lithos ensures the Psiri history will not be lost with its live music every Sunday night. The music starts realtively early in the evening and the crowed is mostly locals who sustain their emotional connection with their music while singing along with the musicians. If you’re looking for a quiet Sunday night dinner, join the tourists in Plaka, but if you want to be immersed in what this Greek-American loves about Greece you should make reservations for Sunday at Lithos.

“Typical Tourist Restaurant”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Based on the reviews- we selected this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. We were very disappointed. The only patrons were tourists - it was during the winter on a Monday night - the only night they don't have live music. Many of the items on the menu were not available - including the house specialty - roasted lamb. All of the seafood was previously frozen - The food was average - if we ever go again - I would stick to the appetizers - overall they were better. The service was attentive - pricing for Athens was ok - but not a good deal

Dear Eur0peanTravels

Thank you for your review.
However, I am certainly disappointed that many of the items on the menu were not available - including the house specialty - roasted lamb.
Also i am disappointed that your wedding anniversary was not according your expectations.
In our menu you can see that the seafood is frozen, Fresh is fish of the day and solomon.
Monday night is a little bit difficult to see local peoples before 21:30

We pride ourselves on our restaurant Your experience falls way below our standards. Please reach out to me personally at info@lithospsiri.gr with your reservation date

With this information I can investigate what fell through and ensure it won’t happen again. Also before visiting us again contact me personally so we can go above and beyond your expectations
