In a small narrow street near Gazi, this restaurant is full of surprises. A lot of greek specialities to discover.
If you go there, say hello to the best and funiest waitress ever. The menu is in greek, and she explained us with passion every single line in English. She even offered us shots of local alcohol.

This little restaurant is very close to our apartment - maybe 10mins walk from Acropolis. Complete win! It was amazing. We were the only foreigners in the place and it was clear the others all knew each other. It only has a Greek menu but the waitress was kind enough to translate the whole thing for us. All the dishes were delicious. At around 1030pm, two guys with instruments came and played and sang local music :) awesome! They all knew them too and clapped - not like the buskers in the touristy places. No money requested. In our month long trip around Europe we have refused to frequent a restaurant twice, but in this case we are planning to make an exception. Go here if you want a true local dining experience.

We were a little nervous given the location of this restaurant but it absolutely paid off! The menu is entirely in Greek but they were more than happy to assist us in translations. Everything we ordered was fabulous! The cous cous, Greek salad and meat tray were delicious. The decor is beautiful and you will love your experience here. Highly recommended!

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.

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.
