“Good Food”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The food is realy tasty and creative. We tried the couscous salad with grean apples. Frankly the appereance of the salad was not really promising, but when we taste the salad, it was a really mouth-watering.

Also we tried the pilaf with tarhana which was a fabulous fusion- local dish.

“Absolutely perfect food, drinks, service”
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”
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”
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!

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.
