This is an authentic little restaurant lost in the middle of many tourist traps. The food is honest and tasty. I chose the place to encourage locals and helping them a bit to go through the Greek crisis. While I was there, locals were in...More

I have often eaten here and all I can say is that it is a lottery. Sometimes the good is excellent and sometimes it is very ordinary. Pleasant old-fashioned setting, classic Athenian menu, indifferent service. Worth taking a chance.

We are vegetarian and were recommended this place by a native! They took us in the kitchen and actually showed us their veggie options! Excellent food and a must go!

It costs less but tastes the same great as at other Greek places. And portions are really big. Host is very welcome.

This family run restaurant is one of my favorite in Greece! The food, service and CALM atmosphere makes it a must if you find yourself anywhere near Syntagma Square.

Thank Chris P K
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
