We ordered a few things and couple local beers. The eggplant salad was one of the best I have ever had. It was warm and full of flavours. Pork souvlaki was cooked to perfection.

Only good to say ! Nice Greek food with excellent service. Full house when we arrived, but no problem. We've got a nice table outside and were served as we come here everyday. We come back tomorrow !

This is the best local restaurant that serves good local food. Good price-quality. Don't look for Michelin-star creativity but if you want to have good Greek food at honest prices, go here.

Easy to walk to if staying in Kastraki. Great service, good food and music. Wait staff is friendly and gets into the music with their own "fire" dance. Traditional Greek food with fair prices.
