Dining options: Lunch, Breakfast, Dinner, Late Night, Delivery, Reservations
Neighborhood: Plaka
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Like most of the places to eat in the Plaka district, this one was very pleasant. The waiter was great, very attentive, and answered all of our questions. He even brought us some "free" stuff as samplers and a "welcome to Greece" beverage.

On the negative side, the lamb did not taste like lamb. It was OK as a meat, but...... Also, compared to other places in the area, it was overpriced, by quite a lot. The manager is a great salesman by getting you into the place and convincing you of the superiority of the food :-)

The bbq meat is cooked well. However the portions are less compared to other places the prices are higher. They tried to force us to order more and brought a big plate of bread without our asking and charged 4.5 for it. Tried to increase the number of drinks we had. Tried to charge more than what was written on the menu. We will never go there again.

We stopped for a light lunch. The waiter brought bread without asking if we wanted it and charged us (they do this a lot in Greece). Had a wonderful Greek salad - one was ordered but it was sufficient for 2 people. Spinach pie - the food was good. Clean and modern, right by the cathedral.

Had dinner there when first arrived at the hotel next door. Service was swift and polite and they recommended some dishes that are not easy to find in other restaurants in the area, Kontosouvli and exohiko, Delicious. Well prepared and reasonable prices. Definitely recommend if you need something fast and cheap, not for a romantic or business dinner.
Some people confuse it with the restaurant across the street that has the same name?
