I visited the place for the first time on a Sunday with 8 friends and a child, we had to make reservations ahead of time. It is a tavern, nothing fancy, but what it lacks in ambience makes up with good food and fair prices. Total bill Euro 165. We got 3 orders of roasted pork (Kontosouvli), 1 order of Kokoretsi (Greek specialty of lamb innards wrapped up with intestines) both cooked on large skewers over charcoal!!! very very tender and tasty, do not shy away from Kokoretsi.

The salad named "Thomas", from one of the people working there, was huge and amazing. We also got 3 orders of a spicy cheese dip (tyrocafteri), couple orders of fries and for the main course we ordered a mixed platter for 6 with grilled lamb chops, pork chops, chicken, 2 varieties of hamburger steaks (beef and chicken) served with extra fries and one of our friends got the pork chop XXL which came on a tray! a thick pork chop with the extension of the pork belly part served with vegies and fries. We also had plenty of beer!, soft drinks and the house white wine in a carafe (it was the only thing that couple of our friends were drinking and had to give it up, they did not like it).

For dessert the child had vanilla ice cream and the rest of us were served 2 plates of an orange pie - Portokalopita (made with dried up fyllo dough mixed with orange/egg/milk type ingredients to make a custard) and vanilla ice scream in the middle and we all got our little spoons and gulped it away. The pie was ok but the ice cream was great!!! The service depending on the people was fast and precise or slow and you really!!! had to catch their eye... I will go back and I recommend it, you get the full experience of roasted meats the Greek way! and you also get value for money. If in Athens, try to get there, not the easiest place to find but worth it.

The tavern is located in a cosmopolitan area of Athens but the atmosphere and the vibes make you feel like you are in a small village far away from the noise of the city. The lamb is wonderful and all the flavors very traditional. Quite expensive but worth it. A small escape from reality during weekends if you prefer to chill out with friends and undoubtedly the perfect environment for families. Check it out.

Almost all dishes are well above average in taste and quantity. Must try dishes : "kontosouvli", "paidakia", "mixed grill", "potatoes with eggs". Friendly and quick service, reasonable prices. In the end, the serve a delicious dessert : "portokalopita with vanilla ice cream". To die for. Highly recommended taverna in general.

Meat was not bad, but I've tasted a better one in other restaurants.. (We've chosen the mix grilled meat) I was quite disappointed by the service of the tavern. Only one waiter to serve so many people! Come on. I felt so sorry for that only waiter! Rest of food was good especially the lettuce with dill. I didn't like the tzatziki though because the yogurt was not of a good quality... it was like foam, and definitely not the village one. I would think about it, If I had been asked to visit again this restaurant.
