“A classic -- it doesn't get more Greek than this restaurant”

I am Greek. I live in kolonaki. This is a classic restaurant. Not fancy, but politicians, the president, ex royalty, celebrities... I have seen them all eat there. Good value too. Highly recommended

“This just must be a scam..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2009

I went to this restaurant, because some reviews mentioned it as a great place with good food. Most of the guests were tourists with tourist guides, so obviously this place is mentioned a lot. The restaurant itself is far from cosy - the light's too bright, decor very dated and kinda clumsy and unwelcoming. You feel like in some hall way. The staff wasn't openly unpleasant, but very cold; they looked like guys who appeared there by some accident. The food was such a disappointment! It looked sort of rustic, but tasted of nothing... we had some fish (salmon, grouper), chips, a salad. Everything was simply put on a pan without seasoning it, the "salad" consisted of unseasoned vegetables, whole chunk of feta cheese and a splash of oil. You can do this in the season, when produce's got superb taste! Not in December.. It all seemed like these people don't like food at all, they just have a restaurant to cover up some other business in the back or something. And they have good connections in some travel agencies to put them into the travel guide books. Horrible!
