“Take your love or your foreign guest!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I am not sure whether I should start with the view to Acropolis, the atmosphere, the food or the Sunday lunch- festivities!! Regardless of the time of the year, you enjoy the view either from the 1st floor, or from the terrace (in summertime)and you enjoy Greek food with a twist pleasantly different compared with what is served in the area around.
You will enjoy the music in the night...BUT if you happen to visit the place on a Sunday for lunch, be prepared to enjoy yourself with live music and why not, spontaneously, dance!

“Service was amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I went to this restaurant during my winter break, and the service I ha was outstanding. The food was also fantastic. Eirni was also very sweet and she was very very helpful not only with placing my order but with her charismatic service she showed me what Greek hospitality is really like. I found that the prices were also very affordable.

if it's a beautiful sunny day, just go sit on their terrace for a nice quiet meal, with the acropolis bang in your face, & very friendly staff. try their nikolai coffee

This is one of my favorite places in Athens! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is inviting and interesting. It is a local favorite and the perfect spot to take in the culture. A MUST when visiting Athens!

“Good Choice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We picked this restaurant quickly, to get out of the rain after walking through the tourist-filled parts of the Monistiraki and flea market areas and were glad we did. Good food, good service, very pleasant all the way around. Typical Greek dishes cooked to oder.
