small restaurant in Plaka, the most touristic area of Athens, but quite outside from the standard paths. Nice location with an outside in a small pedestrian street. Good traditional food and service. cheaper than the average restaurant in plaka and better food. High ratio quality/price.

Lovely old building with great ambiance. Food was delicious. We ate there on two separate evenings and got to sample the entire menu. Loved everything we tried. The wine was good and the beer selection nice. If looking for a quite intimate place away from the craziness of the Plaka it was lovely.

We were a party of 3 in Greece for 6 days, and this was by far our favorite restaurant. The food was exceptional, the experience was incredibly authentic and we were so well taken care of. The history of the food was explained, as was where the food came from and its significance to greek culture, we were in search of a restaurant that was non touristy, we certainly found it here. We ordered several dishes and all were just as good as each other. We ate so much and had plenty of good wine and the check was still way below expectations, we all were seriously impressed.

The restaurant is ever so slightly away from the main street, but seriously worth it, all three of our party loved this restaurant and will defiantly come back.

I just wanted to have a quick salad but stayed a bit longer. Location is great, the staff excellent. And the salad was very good as well. A must go.

Great traditional greek food from the countryside of the non touristy type (no oily moussakas, soggy 'greek' salads' and dodgy skewers).
I had a long relaxing lunch sitting outside in the sun and had amazing meat balls in tomato sauce.
Service is efficient and friendly in basic English and it is excellent value for money.
The place is hard to find as it is in small side street a bit off the main tourist streets of Plaka but it is worth the effort
