“Hidden, local, delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

We ordered 8 of the Meze's and every one of them was awesome! The cous cous required a second order, and the large meat plate was perfect for our group of four. Throughout the night we loved the personal service and translation abilities of the staff. A great local experience in which we appreciated the Greek-only menu, but the staff was more than willing to assist and translate without question.

Don't be turned off by the walk, it is a little off the beaten path but is totally worth it.

“Hidden gem for foodies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

The food is brilliant in this backstreet restaurant. Atmosphere really chilled out and friendly. Large portions with great flavours. We had the small mixed grill and the chicken and mushroom pie in flatbread + Greek salad and took a "doggie bag" home as the unfinished portions were too delicious to leave behind. The house wine was better tasting than other places and 1litre plus meal was only €35 total for 2 people so good value. We're going back tomorrow and happy to recommend to you. Street outside is unassuming and internal decor plain but we think you will be pleasantly surprised.

“very cosy place but not central”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2011

Based on trip advisor references we have found the restaurant, that was not easy since the location is quite periferic. There was no other people, so empty restaurant. We have ordered plate of gill meat (a big one), fresh greek salads, special cheese and beer. For two persons we have paid 33 or 35 Euro. The service was good, the overall quality was also good. It was not "haute cuisine" place, but we did not wish to find such, we were satisfied to eat in empty and good restaurant.

“Great place! Do not missed it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2011

Great place to experience greek food and music. Locals gather around 10pm to enjoy food, music and friends.
The food is very good, the portions are huge and the price is more than reasonable.
The very sweet non-English speakers waiters make an effort to please you and translate all the great goodies that are on the menu.
The close on new year's eve and new year day, so if you are around on late December drop by Korkofila in a working day...once you leave the city, you'll miss it!!
