After wandering around omonia looking for somewhere nice to eat, me and my partner had almost given up when we stumbled upon this little gem. We was welcomed in by the friendly owner who made us both feel at ease, gave us advice on what to order and even taught us some Greek,Yamas!. The starter of mixed grilled cheese was... More

We came back here twice because we so enjoyed the Greek food. All the dishes we tried were beautifully flavored and fresh. Large generous portions and fair prices. Owner was very friendly and seemed to care for every detail.

Love the Greek food here. We had anchovies salad, moushaka and the lamb, chicken, pork BBQ. Worth the money and the food was delicious. We sat outside in the tent. Only thing, I noticed there was only one waiter that served many tables. Just pitied him. Otherwise, it was good.

The food (Lunch) was above reproach, I couldn't find one complaint with the quality of food. The service was odd, I walked up to the restaurant and the host walked me across the street to a tent restaurant that was obviously an extension of the dining area. I enjoyed my food and was ready to be on my way and... More

My hotel recommended this restaurant, as I entered I was met by this friendly older man. He introduced himself as Alex (Alexis). He showed me to my table and offered some suggestions. I took his suggestion on the wine and it was quite good. I ordered the stuffed tomato and pepper, a vegetarian dish, along with the veal steak. While... More

The food is lovely and staff friendly. All kinds of food to choose from. It's a small cozy place and easy to get to being near the metro.

The food was just okay. We had a Greek salad, spaghetti and the chicken breast. The chicken breast was nice as was the complimentary bread, but that was as far as it went. Food wasn't served together and we had almost finished everything before the chicken breast arrived. Okay if you are out of options otherwise I'd explore elsewhere.
