“So great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This restaurant is so great. It's more of a lunch or laid back dinner kinda place. We were two people, including drinks it came to about 15 euros. You get A LOT of food for the price. The service is fantastic also. Very friendly.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We are definitely coming back here next time we go to Greece! Best food we’ve ever had in our life! It was very authentic and very, very tasty! Prices were extremely reasonable as well! Atmosphere was very cosy. It’s nice to just sit down there, even if you only go for dessert and drinks. You can’t miss the place as they have little postcards everywhere in the city centre. The staff were very friendly as well. Make sure you try the Greek doughnuts!

“Friendly and relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant via the free maps available in boxes near the Acroplis train station. The staff and food were so good we went back three times in the week and each time the authenitic Greek food was delicious and cheap. So, find the free map and then find the restaurant - not hard to do.

“Friendly restaurant; very touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We stopped by for breakfast one morning since our children were hungry. The waitress was absolutely lovely and friendly.
The food was average and the cappuccinos were tiny for the price. We would have been better just grabbing a coffee at Starbucks (cheaper too).
I think this is a place for dinner (they seemed to have good deals written on the side of the building).
Breakfast here was expensive and nothing special.
Seemed like a tourist trap to me but due to the friendliness of the family people leave overrated reviews on Trip Advisor.
Come here to meet a nice Greek family but don't expect great food.

“Good food, great value, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Down to earth family establishment, serving wholesome Greek food with very friendly service in a central location.

The surroundings are not flash but don't let that put you off.

If you have a few days in Athens, go there and give them your business - they deserve it and you will enjoy the food!
