“Good service, great ambience, cool air conditioning, pretty bland food”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Went for dinner in Regal as we were rushing and it is just next to the metro exit.

The restaurant was quite nicely decorated and had a pretty good ambience. However it took quite awhile for the waiter to bring us a menu. We ordered a spaghetti napolitana and a spaghetti cabornara.

Both dishes was pretty average and took quite a long time to be ready. Perhaps this could be due to the timing of our visit which was at around 6.30pm (too early for Greeks to have dinner).

The restaurant does offer free wifi connection which is pretty fast and stable. Restaurant was also well air conditioned so perfect for the hot summer days.

Overall, service was good except that its a little slow. Food was average but priced very reasonable.

“An exceptionally friendly restaurant on a pedestrian way flanking the Acropolis Museum!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

My wife and I discovered Regal early in our stay in Athens and I cannot give a higher recommendation! The food is superb, the service (Nikki, our server is so sweet, friendly and helpful). The atmosphere is excellent - if you like people watching in the shady heat under mature hardwood trees that is. In a part if town that sometimes seems to treat tourists like € signs, Regal is an oasis of cordial service, quiet music and fantastic food at reasonable prices. Yamas!

“Great food and service. Ask for Niki”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Amazing food and awesome service. Niki is the server that we have had a couple of times for breakfast and lunch. Food is incredible and drinks are cold and awesome. Coffee is hot and yummy. We will definitely be back.

“A place to be across Acropolis metro station”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The best coffee-shop with good music, non-smoking area, internet facilities, comfortable seating and tasty dishes.
Best of all is agreable service and nobody rushes you out, even if you stay for a long time.
