“An unplanned dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

...We had no plans for dinner and we were wandering around the Acropolis museum area (what a lovely walk...). We were hungry and remembered all the nice things we had read about this restaurant. We decided to give it a try. And it was more than worth it. It was almost full, we had no reservation and they welcomed us with courtesy. The menu was so tempting we did not know where to start from...We tried the "kritharoto"with 3 kinds of mushrooms, the small burgers with the aubergine puree, a green salad, the home-made potatoes and I do not remember what else! The wine list had excellent local choices. We were offered masticha liquor and a dessert when we asked for the bill...small gestures that win the heart (and the stomach...)
One small improvement I suggested also to the maitre and she kindly acknowledged and told me that it will be soon taken care of: the bathroom facilities need to be a bit "restored". It was very clean, do not get me wrong, but in need of a touch that will make it worth belonging to the rest of the restaurant

“Fresh”

Food was amazing and very fresh. The best Feta Ravioli I've ever had! Fresh Octopus salad was incredible. You should go here!

“Best meal in Athens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

It was difficult to find but all of the locals can point you to it--very close to the Acropolis Museum. We had the pork belly and a truffle pasta dish--amazing! Wine was excellent--so was the service--orange cake very good and the mastica was an excellent end to our evening. This is a culinary experience to enjoy.

“Great food and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is a great find and there was a bistro feel about the resaurant. The staff suggested salads and things to share as starters and this was great. We then all chose our mains and some had puddings and it was still reasonable price but great food.

“Pamper your taste buds!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Deliciously cooked Greek food....very gourmet style where everything on the menu is perfect. From salads to starters to mains to desserts. Staff is very polite and the whole atmosphere of
this restaurant is very elegant. Not to be missed by any traveller to Athens or any permanent resident of Greece. A bit pricey...we paid 98 euro for 4 people and that was full courses and a glass of wine each person. Very nice to go there for that special evening.
