“Even the table wine tasted good”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Lots for the value. Soup was offered as a taster, I was lucky enough to have ordered it already, was a leek soup, yum! We had the grilled octopus, well done, great presentation! Friend had the Caprice salad, again, very nice presentation and the cheese was fresh... the bread is home made and very tasty! The main course, friend had the mushroom risotto, presentation could have been better but the portion was large and the taste even more impressive. I had the fresh fish and steamed vegetables, very good taste and a good presentation, to many bones, but the flavor was good! The service was great and to top off the meal the dessert was presented on the house, friend has a gluten allergy and they made her a special dessert, but the cherry cheese cake was YUMMY. We had the table wine, we have enjoyed this all through Greece and the taste is very good, reasonable priced and complimented the meal, we had the rose..

“Diner after the Marathon 2013”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The place is ok near a public garden and only aprox 100 meters from hotel Davani Caravel. Nice modern setting, very friendly staff, good local drinks and Greek food too.
In 'warm' times also a perfect terras.

“First class service”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I could simply not fault the service at this restaurant and it's clearly very popular with both locals and visitors alike. I went on Saturady evening. half empty at 8:30pm but hardly a spare table when I left.
I was given small bowl of soup as a taster, ordered two courses, both of which were good and they tried vainly to give me a lovely looking desert but I declined as I was too full.

Clearly they thought I was unhappy so they poured me a Mastiha and left the bottle on the table for me!! (did my reputation for a drop precede me I wonder?)

Nice contemporary decor and in a pleasant area. Well worth a visit.

“Well worth a visit!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We had read the Trip Advisor reviews for Oroscopo before arriving in Athens and thought we'd give it a try if we came across it - and we found it almost straight away. The staff were warm and welcoming and settled us at our table quickly. The menu is lenghty and varied and once we'd ordered bread arrive followed by some free mushroom soup, which was excellent and beautifully seasoned. We enjoyed our meal and whilst we pondered on dessert, two free desserts appeared and they were very tasty. We enjoyed some local white wine too, which was nice. The whole evening was lovely and the food not expensive - particularly with the free starter and dessert! The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definately come back.

“excellent”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Their is a few restaurants on this block, and this is the only one that always has people in it.
Skip all the other restaurants and go there. The owner/staff are great, they are quick to get you water, hot bread-the best I had in greece, but 2.40 euros, but worth it. They do not tell you their is a charge, but that's not unusual in Europe.
The owner gives all guests free dessert and a after ice sorbert . The food is great, hot and priced very well. I had a veal chop that was 14.50 euros and it was great. My mother had a whole fish that was around 15 euros and it was fresh and a nice size.
The food is excellent, the restaurant is beautiful, open and very clean.
we went back the next night before we left Athens, very highly recommended

Guest satisfaction is our primary concern and we are delighted to learn that your lunch with us was an enjoyable one and that it met with your expectations, so you visited us twice during your stay in Greece. Regarding your remark that “hot bread-the best I had in greece”, we would like to inform you that we bake all day the bread on the stone, in our oven, in order to serve it always warm and fresh. It will be an absolute pleasure to welcome you back when you are next in Athens.
