Great food and good service. Reasonable prices and all this in the centre of Athens in close proximity to most sites and hotels. A perfect place to sit and eat after a busy day of having wondered Athens city. We enjoyed ourselves and found the food delicious. Well done!!!

Our first and only night in Athens and we were looking for somewhere local. We tried here based on the Trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed in the least, it was good honest food tasting excellent, cooked and served by someone who appeared to love what they were doing. It was not 5 star dining it was fun creative food at an extremely reasonable price. I would totally recommend the place for a casual easy going meal.

Service was very mediocre but food was excellent. Entrees were 8-12 Euros. Salads/starters were about 6-8 Euros. The Salmon was excellent as was the cous cous salad and cheesecake. I was extremely impressed.

Lovely real Greek food, with pretty light cocktails to pair your meal at a small quite street very close to Syntagma sq., the main central Athenian square.
Ask for the day's special. Very popular among the locals, and especially young proffesionals around 25 to 45 years old

This was one of our favorite restaurants during our stay in Athens. The food was great and reasonably priced.

My girlfriend and I chose this place for an early dinner as it is close to New Hotel and met up with her uncle and two aunts during our stay in Athens.

Our table shared a bottle of wine and I had the burger which was memorably good. Everyone was really pleased with their meal and the price was quite reasonable.

The restaurant looked empty when we arrived, but don't let that sway you. This restaurants is definitely worth a visit.
