“Excellent food, reasonably priced, convenient location”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Something to remember is, you won't find the exact name (Prokomenes) written anywhere (either on the name board or inside the restaurant). It is only a few minutes walk from the city centre.

Instead of a menu, they have all the food on display and the servers speaks reasonable English too!

You can have two mains, a salad (plenty for 2) and a 500ml beer (plus a complimentary desert) for less than 25 euros!

Some of the favourites are Beef curry, Potato (roast, dipped in olive oil), rice, aubergine based curry (that looks like minced meat) They have chicken too, but no pork!

The place is clean and the service is fast. Food is tasty and well presented (relatively)

“Unusual... nice enough but a bit odd!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Procomenes was recommended to us by our hotel manager and the welcome was enthusiastic, however the restaurant was empty so there was no atmosphere to speak of.

We were brought food we had not ordered/wanted and the waiter said (or at least we thought he said) it was on the house...it wasn't. The traditional Greek dishes were pre-cooked and kept luke-warm in bain-maries so more like a self service cafe in a store/supermarket/hospital canteen although the quality of the food was fine. A bit expensive for what it was, though, and as there was no menu you have no idea what you are spending until the end.

“like a home cooked meal with new friends”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere of the place is very cozy and the staff was very friendly. The style of dining was a bit different from your average restaurant. The cook has prepared a selection of different dishes that you can see before ordering. I think this is great for tourists since with many menus you can't be sure what your getting. The host made some suggestions and I went with the fish of the day, the friend I was with chose a vegetarian dish and we chose roasted potatoes as a side. While we were eating the host brought us a small sample of the ratatouille which was amazing! Over all the service was great and from what I could tell the whole restaurant was non smoking. Not so great for me but I know many western tourists might appreciate that.

“Nice Greek Restaurant”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food at the restaurant was very good. We picked by looking at the food and got a free portion of Ratatouille and a dessert. The prices where low compared to other experiences we had on this trip. The waiters were really nice and explained all the food before we picked something. All in all it was a very good place to eat very good food for a very good price. I would totally go there again.

“Nice Ambiente but ...”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

We saw this place passing by and liked the ambiente. The atmosphare was really nice and you choose the food via a vitrine. The bad thing was that the food was not that good, the service was slow and the prices were above average without an obvious reason.
