Tried here, after a great pitch by the chap at the door - promising that although it was a little more expensive than some places, the food was worth it - & especially the steak...it did not live up to his promises!
The setting was terrific - great rooftop restaurant, with views of the acropolis from every table...it was a little cramped, so if you were unlucky enough to have an inconsiderate smoker at the table next to you, you had no escape!
The staff were very friendly & we received a nice welcome.
1st niggle - no house wine - so we had to pay E14 for a 75cl bottle of mediocre white...everywhere else we eat, we'd been able to get 1l of pretty dman good house wine for less than this.
2nd niggle - the food was prepared downstairs & carried on open plates, up stairs to the roof terrace...this meant most of the food was almost cold by the time it arrived at your table!
The starters were very nice - I think we had garlic mushrooms & baked feta cheese...& it was a good start - we thought we'd made a good choice!
However: having been given a good 'sell' on how good the steaks were, we both ordered sirloin steak in redwine & mushroom sauce. It was awful...! The steak was cold, tough & totally tasteless....thank goodness for the sauce - which was the inly flavour on the plate! To add insult to injury - the vegetables served with the steak was tinned peas & carrots!!!! It was like school dinners all over again...
Wouldn't go back here I'm afraid.

We decided to eat here on our last night of our holiday and we were hoping for some delicious food, we were not dissapointed! The starters were delicious especially the baked aubergine dish. The main course did not dissappoint, though the veg with them was overcooked. We were served by two waiters one who was grumpy but this was made up by the fact the other waiter was a very chirpy chap and made us feel welcome. I would recommend this restaurant.
