We came for an early dinner (with a reservation @ 7:30) & the restaurant was wide open with no one inside. Very strange. We waited for 10 minutes with another walk-in couple before someone wandered in & hustled us to the garden next door where other diners were in full swing. The food - welcome amuse bouche, their multi-color salad, beef fillet & lamb shank were all very attractive plated & very, very good. The efficient & personable service was as well. The tables set up in a garden setting on crunchy uneven gravel was a tad odd but the meal was great.

This very good restaurant is a surprise in Athens, excellent wines, very good food and service is simply perfect. Prices are a bit too high, but the place and service deserve it ...

My first review did not post, but I'm grateful because we had the chance to eat at 2Mazi a second time, and it was just as good as the first. Last week, because of inclement weather, we ate inside, and tonight, we dined in the garden, which was beautiful. I'm pleased to report that the welcome we received each time was just as gracious, and the hospitality shown us was extraordinary. The food was beautifully presented and delicious, and the staff was knowledgable about the Greek wines and guided us to the perfect bottles based on our order. Our party of four had the muscles, multi-color salad, shrimp, leek tart, moussaka, chicken bites, and the Greek pie, if memory serves, as appetizers, on our two visits. For the mains, we had lamb, rooster, and sea bass. Dessert choices included fondant au chocolat, what cherry with bitter choloate cream, yogurt mousse, and the ice creams. Again, nothing less than delicious, perfectly presented dishes. The dinner conclude with complimentary shots of Mastika liquor, served icy cold. Ilias is a most charming host, and made us feel as though we were dining at his home. Highly recommended.

1st time in 2mazi and the reservation of 4 found us welcomed by a stunning young woman at the entrance.Our table as well as the atmosphere cosy & classy at the same time.
The service was brilliant and the food ranging from gourmenized traditional dishes from all over greece to the specialized fashioned outcomes of the specials for the day were all delicious.

You wont regret the choice if you re willing to spend the money for gourmet cuisine.

I had walked past this restaurant last time I was in Athens and I had remembered it because of the pretty fairy lights hanging at the entrance and along the trees so I thought if back in Athens I will check it out. So glad I did as it was scrumptious and I mean sublime. The meat dishes and starters they brought us were more than delicious and the wine they recommended was great we went through two bottles and we were only 4 people drinking.

At the end of our meal they brought us the most delicious drink called Mastica it’s like a digestive if you will and we ended up having at least 5 shots each of this delicious concoction of Greek Mastic. They kept pouring and we kept drinking and it was a truly magical Athenian exhilarating dining experience. Such fun. Will definitely be going back when in Athens. They showed us a great time so thank you!
