A place that you probably don't know unless somebody has told you about it. A family run taverna with a long history. The meal starts with the "Disko"/tray where they bring you the cold starters. Then they take your meat order. Lamb chops to die for and cuts of meat aged cut to order and cooked with charcoal to perfection.... More

A typical Greek taverna in the outskirts of Athens turned to a destination for meat lovers!! Average ambience (smoky inside in winter) but far better in the spring and summer with outside seating. Simple menu , but meat cooked to perfection with little frills and whistles. The french fries are " to kill for ". Nice range of desserts !

For meat lovers only, who don't care about decoration, cuttlery and the rest... This place serves the best non-premium (i.e. not wagyu, black-angus, kobe...etc) meat I've ever had!! I often think to my self, how would these guys work on a piece of premium beef, when they reach excellence with common beef and the most popular cuts (t-bone and ribeye)?... More

Once more there and no surprises. The best steak in Athens (for years),so tasty though raw material is Greek. Same gloomy environment inside(need to fix it guys)though garden is better. Descent wine and service,boring desserts. Excellent value for money(30 euros per person and you eat a lot). Again:the best steak in Athens.

Owners are great people and very kind hosts. The food is addictive. Start with a greek salad and wild greens. Continue with a carpaccio (it's not in the menu, so ask the waiter) to taste the great quality of meat that they serve. And then it's the kidneys!!! Grilled to perfection and caramelized in a way that takes you to... More
