“Nice neighbourhood eatery”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Chose after reading Tripadvisor reviews. Little off the main tourist routes and all the better for being so (but near Hilton). Fairly busy for a Sunday night mainly with locals who seemed to be having a good time. Dirty cutlery to start did not bode well, however, after this minor hiccup we had a very pleasant evening with excellent flavoursome food (excellent rustic bread), generous portions and pleasant service. The owner also brought us a complimentary soup to start with (very tasty) and also complimentary dessert selection, which despite being quite full from the other courses, we could not resist ! He also brough us a selection of local digestives to taste, most tasted like cough medicine, except a cinnamon or maybe nutmeg concoction that slipped down quite nicely ! And the final bill was very reasonable too. A recommendation.

“Excellent food, fantastic service”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

My travelling partner and I visited this restaurant on the last night of a three week visit to Athens and the Greek Islands. The restaurant was about a 12-15 minute walk from our hotel and which we found on Trip Advisor. The reviews for this restaurant were excellent and we were not disappointed. We arrived at about 9pm and found the restaurant busy, both indoors and out. We were concerned that we would not get a table as it took 3 or 4 minutes to be acknowledged by the staff but this place was our first choice so we were willing to wait it out. However, once the staff had a moment, we were warmly greeted and moved to a table on the outdoor patio. From that moment on, the food, the wine, the service was outstanding. The menu is varied and portions plentiful. The skill of the kitchen for both flavour and presentation is superb and incomparable. The atmosphere is sophisticated but inviting and comfortable. Our wait staff were friendly and professional offering suggestions for our supper which did not disappoint. My partner and I had wine with dinner and after dinner aperitifs suggested by our waiter. And to top off an already amazing meal, we were brought complimentary dessert. The fact that we could see that the locals frequented this restaurant made us realize that it must be good. We both felt very lucky that we visited Oroscopo on our last night in Athens as this was the icing on the cake to a very enjoyable and memorable trip to Greece. We highly recommend a visit to this restaurant regardless of where you might be staying in Athens. You won't be disappointed!

“The Pita Bread My Husband Was Craving---and More”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

A lovely restaurant, a bit off the beaten path. Do take the Metro instead of walking from the Plaka! We really enjoyed the chicken souvlaki. The portions are so generous that we asked them to box our fruit plates to enjoy later. That bread really was irresistible. We did have a bit of room to enjoy the complimentary liqueurs. Make a reservation.

“Great, homestyle restaurant in a nice "quiet" area”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

This restaurant has just everything you need for a tasty, nice, relaxed lunch/diner. Portions are big, flavours are spot on and service is friendly. Although it is surrounded by two 5* hotels, the neighbourhood doesn't feel touristy at all. A lot of locals come here to eat, so you feel more like one of them, instead of a tourist.
