“Great location good quality with no rush”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

The locarion is delightful. Just off the main walkway and under a canopy of mature trees.
Service is profeasional.
Food is good quality and chef's recommendations are worth listeningw to.
I had squid as a starter, and would highly recommend it.
Prices are very reasonable
It gets busy, better to book or get there fairly early if you want to eat under the trees.
Very nice for a relaxing holiday meal.

Thank Carl K

“Food ok”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We had a good experience here and I would rate it even very good considering the location, price and food; but the service was really rough and rude, even for Greek standards.
Despite of this, we decided to tip, the waiter noticed the tip and wasn't even able to communicate in any way any appreciation (I don't he had to thank us but a smile or a nod would have done it).
Keeping in mind this, which is not acceptable, I give 2 stars.

“Good food and location”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We liked the location, just up the road from our hotel and overlooking a pleasant square. The food was good and reasonably priced for the area.

“Very average”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Nice setting, there is no doubt, but the food is just okay.We had spent several days in Athens and every single meal before this one had been outstanding. This, however, was NOT cooked with love. As we hadn't had moussaka we thought we'd try it. Now, we can all make a terrific moussaka at home but this just tasted like something from the supermarket chilled compartment. The price was a little more expensive than all the others places we had tried - still quite reasonable, however, and the house wine was good.

“Great location and service”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

It is located in the Plaka area on a small square so a little distance from the passing tourists. Great service and good quality food, reasonably priced.
