Very nice mushroom risotto and the mojito was also tasty. Only a miss on opening the water and giving us bread before asking and then charging us. I knew they would, but my husband was surprised. If they stopped this they would rise up in...More

We were very tired and hot and a very kind man walked us to this restaurant. I was a bit suspect at first as I didn't have a chance to check it out on TripAdvisor before my wife walked in and sat down. So we...More

Foods are good even though not particularly exceptional. Very good location with outside seats and a close view of the cathedral from the back. It is though off the road from Mitropoleos, not easily seen - we were solicited by a staff stationed outside for...More

The food was edible, but pretty poor for the price. Fries soggy, lamb with a lot of gristle, etc. The greek salad was decent, but you can get the same anywhere. The live music was good at least!

We had a nice dinner and enjoyed the live music. They offered a 40 euro special dinner for 2 and so we ordered a nice salad with sliced almonds, stuffed peppers and moussaka and two glasses of wine. I really liked the moussaka. I recommend...More

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
