I visited Oroscopo again on my latset trip to Athens and everything was outstanding. New menu, great food and their amazing leek potato soup as an appatizer (free!) was the best i've ever tasted. I had the unique Oroscopo salad, zucchini-ball appetizer and a perfectly grilled salmon steak that was to die for. It does not get better than this. The waiters are gracious and the owner is a prince. He is charming, courteous and very generous. The music was great and set the mood for a WONDERFUL evening. The only place to go when visiting Athens.DK, & TM

I went Oroscopo based on reviews on Trip Advisor and I found the place below what I expected.
The place, staff and overall ambience are all good, but when it came to food it was average. I had a mushroom soup (I'm a big fan of it and I have it everywhere I go and find it) and it was really "meh!". I then ordered a seafood risotto which was fine. The salad was just another Greek salad... nothing special.
Finally, it's a bit pricy to when you normally get in Athens and their menu was rich with different items.

We only had a quickly early dinner so I can’t judge very extensively, apart from the previous Tripadvisor comments being pretty in line with what we experienced.

Oroscopo is a nice modern place with affordable price and friendly service. Definitively not a fast food joint, but not particularly upscale or traditional either. So if you are looking for that One Special Memorable Greek Dinner in Athens, this may not be the one.

But, if you stay in Hilton, and want to balance your budget and eat well, Oroscopo is a safe choice, as it is only like 200-300 meters away.

This place was a pleasant surprise. I had not read the reviews carefully so I was expecting just another gyros and souvlaki place. Ha! Oroscopo is a classy place, with table cloths and excellent food. The only thing that didn't wow me was the saganaki but that's because I'm not a huge lover of fried cheese. They brought us olive tapenade and potato leek soup with salmon to start, on the house. Both were delicious. I had grilled octopus and my wife had a spinach and feta crepe. Dessert was also on the house. The food was fantastic, service impeccable, and the music eclectic and cool. Best meal in Greece for me!
