Stopped in for a drink and ended up having dinner. Delicious traditional Greek food and excellent value wine. The owner Kostas was very welcoming and offered to give us not only a fava bean recipe but also the fava beans to make it with. Highly recommended.

Quite new place in the area but definitely worth a visit! The menu and its appetisers especially are delicious. We were lucky to meet the owner who joined us at the table. We will eat there a second time before leaving Athens.

We had the best time at Bandiera. The food was perfect, the atmosphere was great and the owners and the personal are fantastic people. Greek hospitality at his best for a very good price. We would definitely recommend this place.

This new eating place (since 2016) in Psyrri quarter ist just the kind of locality, where I enjoy spending an evening, when alone. There are a few traditional marble-topped small tables outside with the according wicker chairs. The 'Politiko Bistrokafeneio', as it calls itself in Greek, referring to the 'Polis' (the city, always actual Istanbul for the Greeks) is owned by Takis, coincidentally with the same name as the street, where the place is located.

When asking him about the Italian 'flag'-name, Takis told me that his grandfather in his shop in Istanbul used to sew flags, also the 'Bandiera Rossa' of the revolutionaries.

Anybody curious about something different than the usual Greek dishes should come here. It is not of the new inventive modern Greek cuisine I had just encountered the evening before, but rather traditional regional dishes unknown to most people. So Takis must have done his travelling through various parts of Greece.

Parsley Salad from Syros (superb), Grilled Talagani Cheese from Messinia, Froutalia from the Cyclades, Apaki from Crete, Loukanikakia from Thracian Tsoumagia, Pastourma from Drama, Manouri from Tyrnavo and so on.

The menu-card is in English and Greek, with the Greek side giving much more information about the origin of each dish. For me this 'Mezedopoleio', as I would call it, has been the greatest new discovery in Athens food scene recently.
