Been here three times, the food and service are fantastic. Great place in the Plaka of Athens, music in the evenings at least on Friday's. Love it love it. Try the Lamb in Clay Pot....WOW!

We ate here on the upper terrace. Amazing view of the Plaka, Parthenon, and the City. Food was good, not great, and arrived warm not hot....due, I suspect, to the fact that the kitchen is downstairs. Wine was good and prices were excellent.

we ordered starters and a main course, all came at the same time. Ehr housewife was very good. The starters also. But the potatoes were not really cooked, the vegetables watery and cold. The deserts were very sweet and too much. Average for the price

We really enjoyed our food, being a veal special and chicken with pasta. I tried engaging with the wait staff, bit they had no knowledge of the wines on the wine list and only once came by to pour the wine. However, the setting was...More

The lamb here was excellent. Staff gave great suggestions. It's a little touristy but the food is well prepared and the views are great.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
