Best place and atmosphere, comparable to LA's SAGE or PENELOPE in NYC. Really top notch. The watier is just hilarious, should be a movie actor.

“Simply fantastic. Best in Athens.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

This gem of a restaurant is too good to be true. But it is!!

It combines superb food - Greek cuisine with splendid twists - excellent service and a laid back atmosphere that most homes would envy.

Every single dish I have sampled, and I've been there many times, from appetizer to desert, has been delicious and inventively presented. The wine list is substantial and affordable.

Prices are extremely reasonable, you would be hard put to spend more than 15-20 euro per person. You just can't beat their price-quality ratio!!

Bottom line: probably the best "casual" restaurant in Athens right now. Go!!

“Number one in Athens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Went there sooo often...

Nice place with lots of spirit, great waiters, isn't it Georges,( kind of half canadian friend)? And the price is worth the value, if i may say.
the colours are very greenish, pastel green... So,if u like....

Best for me are the fine salads! Coffee is also top...
Then it is in this very interesting area of Exarchia, and the restaurants around are of high quality also...(yanties, and salt and sugar... )

“Best place in Athens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I spent 2 months in Athens, and i found very hard not having to eat these meaty meals and traditionnal stuff all the time.
Yes, souvlaki is nice, once a month, may be.

You'll understand i am nearly vegeterian...
This is the best place because:
Very good meals (mushroom parpadelle are greatest), nice fish, and the place has a lot of good vibes, just a nice spirit.
If u go in the evening tell the waiter (georges who is half canadian) that u come from William...
He might offer u the wine.

Really, just go for it,... And it's a few meters from exarchia...

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

I really enjoyed some of the different dishes here, the stuffed mushroom was delicious & despite my doubts about the turkey with sauce & flakes of chocolate it worked really well! The salad choice was also good & some very tasty bread to go with it. We also had horta pie & some other dishes, all very good & the service was excellent. Very nice homely feel & warm atmosphere.
