Description: Food and drink suggestions based on seasonal products, with the best value for quality. Classic cocktails made with a twist combined with imaginative dishes, like a Bloody Mary with red peppers from Florina and sumac, which supplements a hot chickpea salad,with sun-dried tomato, fresh basil and smoked pork tenderloin. The best choice for a lunch break or to start your night out.

“Absolutely perfect food, drinks, service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Variety of light but most tasty dishes! Perfect for lunch or early dinner. After a long walk in Plaka try a refreshing lemon juice! Nikos, who will be attending you, will make you feel like home! Oh! Unbeatable prices! Value for money!

“Excellent Restaurant/Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

One of the athenian gems. Somehow hidden from the mainstream tourist main walking route. I've been there numerous times. Consistent quality and tasteful meals. Makalo servers great cocktails as well. A must for the serious minded traveller. Good prices.

“Great service and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Super friendly people working here, just talk to them about your day, how you feel and what you feel like and they recommend you sth from the menu. First time we visited we just had a drink but we came back later for dinner. I had the burger which was pretty awesome. Definitely recommended!

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

We were staying nearby and found this recommended on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The couscous apple feta salad was to die for!!! Try the specials!!! Prices can't be beat. Wish we had one more day!!! We'd definitely go back.
