“Amazing dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Cannot fault this restaurant! From the service to the atmosphere and especially the amazing food. Our waiter Anastasios was very polite and friendly without being pushy. He was attentive and helpful with selecting the food too. I had the Ydria chicken and each bite was melt in your mouth heaven, the secret sauce was delicious as was the amazing chocolate soufflé we had for desert. I am only sad we had only one night in Athens or I would definitely come back!

“Great food for great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Delicious food with a wide variety to choose from. Our waiter Anastasios was very helpful in helping to choose a meal that suited my taste. Food was excellent with good portion sizes and the soufflé was a special treat. Highly recommend as an essential stop for visitors to Athens.

“Greek Taverna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Typical Greek Taverna in Plaka. Food was excellent and staff were happy to explain menu. Everyone speaks English. Makes me wish that I could speak Greek better than I do.

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Our friends visiting Athens from a cruise ship, we were tired and needed a washroom break after few hours walking around. My friend spotted this cafe near Plaka. We went in for a washroom break and the waiter was very friendly and helpfull. We end up having a coffe there. We were very pleased with the coffee and some kind of donut (free) that serve with the coffee. The waiter was very helpfull and help us setup our Ipad for internet. The restaurant was very nicely decorate and we were comforable to spend a few hours there. I highly recommend a coffee break here.
