“Pretty setting......OVER PRICED!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Like others, our taxi driver brought us here. Oh sure, he told us that he could take us to a great fish restaurant that he eats at all the time. The food was good but very over priced for what you get! AND BEWARE...... They'll put bread on your table, crack open and pour you a glass of water before you know it and ADD an additional 9 EURO onto your bill. Our very light LUNCH with 3 beers, came out to 70 EURO!!!

“Excellent seafood with a nice view”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stopped in Athens on a cruise. We wanted a place to eat near the port and found this place based upon a recommendation from our tour guide. Had a lovely lunch here with a fantastic view. The seafood was great and the tzatizki amazing. Since we didn't have much time in Athens I didn't notice the prices and thought they were not bad for the quality we were getting. If you happen to find yourself with only a few hours in port this is an excellent find within a 15 minute taxi (10 euro) ride to port in Pireaus.

“Very nice setting, but very expensive”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We went here on recommendation of hotel. The staff were very attentive and setting of restaurant was very good. However, compared to other restaurants in the area it is extremely expensive. For example, the following night we ate better at the third of the price. You are really paying for the setting and number of staff. To me the on-street restaurants nearby felt more authentic and I enjoyed them more as I was not concerned about cost as I was in Zorbas.

“AWFUL!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Avoid like the plague, expensive, lousy service and a rude head honcho. Go instead to Cheers - opposite Hotel Mistral - it may not look the part from the outside but, wow, what a view, great music and nice people who deserve the custom.

“NEVER DO THIS!”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

I finally went into a tourist trap! Bugger! I should have realized...

Eventually I found out, this place is recommended by taxi drivers and hotel staff. Surprisingly they all have also the business cards right available. A bad sign.

Quality and presentation of food is low class, however they charge first class prices. Also, they charge items one never actually had, like tab water or bread one never ordered, olives one even did not receive... Complaining helps to get the price down, however this is still not worth it. And the staff is not really worth the money either.

The view from the terrace is nice, but do you really need old PET bottles and condoms floating by on the surface of the water while having dinner...?
