“Greek flavor palette reimagined”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

Taking traditional Greek flavors but reinventing them in new ways, this 2 star Michelin restaurant deserves it! Choose from 3 different tasting courses with the option of adding wine pairings (mostly from local Greek varietals). It's a bit tricky to find as it's on a side street that doesn't have regular traffic.

“Fantastic food but wine stumbles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

We were four people aged 20 to 50 who had a fabulous food experience. Several of us are interested in food and nutrition and were amazed by the creativity of Funky Gourmet. We all chose the 16 course dinner and particularly enjoyed the fourth course, "The Picnic". All courses were very good and presented in an interesting way.
The restaurant stumbles a bit more on the wines. The accompanying wines were all good and balanced the food well, except for the rosé, which was tasteful of sweet berries and interesting in itself but became tasteless with the spring wreath. However, the portions of wine were unnecessarily small; One glass of sparkling wine to last four courses, three sips of Sigalas Estate to last through both the langoustine and the fish. We felt the experience would have been even better with just a little more wine. Even though we had sufficient Pinot Noir to last through both the salad, the scallops and the lamb chops, we were a bit disappointed when the Cabernet wash´t even served with the lamb.
We had a great evening and would recommend the restaurant to anyone interested in food!

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

It is easy to be so impressed with the presentation that you lose objectivity with this. There is little to add to the many wonderful reviews. It's an excellent restaurant, brilliant service, exceptionally fine food, highly original, very artistic, and in a lovely setting.

Minor complaints include the location which is a little rough, and perhaps one or two dishes - the wagyu mini burger - which are slightly below the standard of the rest.

“Reason enough to visit Athens.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

By far, the best dining experience we have ever had. An interactive feast for the senses. The staff was impeccable yet so much fun. We have dined at other Mich Starred restaurants all over and nothing has come close to this experience. It is a foodie experience not to be missed.
