Description: The restaurant " Oineas " ,established in 1999, embodies all the tradition and the air of another bygone era described as " the good old days " of the historical city of Athens. Placed at the neighborhood of Psyrri our restaurant aims to maintain the memories, that all we, the Greeks, had from our childhood . Good food is our main concern, with our menu consisting of traditional Greek recipes prepared in a modern and fresh way combining small gourmet touches . The desserts , are hand-made, prepared daily by the Mother of the owner, Christina Korda . The famous "ravani", a traditional greek type of cake soaked in syrup is served with kaimaki ice cream , leaving a last sweet taste to accompany you on the way home . The name "Oineas", is the name of an ancient greek king, who is supposed to be taught the culture and mystical values of life by the god Dionysos himself. It was chosen as the name of our restaurant because of our love for good wine , which flows in abundance as we have our own homemade House Wine both red and white. You should also, try the traditional greek drinks Ouzo, and Tsipouro, while you will be enjoying our unique tidbits, or else, the tradition greek "mezedes, made from fresh ingredients. The store has been decorated by the collection of antiques that Mr Angelos has being collecting for over than 40 years ,consisting of old advertisements , memorabilia , products of the era of the old Athens of the 50's, 60's and the 70's and all these kind of small objects are displayed throughout the store . It really is a small museum, and the antiques are unique and collected with great difficulty and fumbling . It is above all, a family business , a restaurant that is basically our home, the ornament and the result of chronic work, and dedication. We used all our good taste , our love of good company and established this restaurant for the pleasure it gives to us, having beautiful people enjoying their meal and drink, with good company at our place. We hope that we will see you soon!

Recommended by the concierge, the restaurant filled with memorabilia, turned to be a very good choice in the center of Athens, nearby Monastiriki. Sizeble portions, good quality, charming service.

Restaurant situated in charming Psiri area.
The place where the locals dine.
Food is traditional Greek of very high quality. All freshly handmade and very tasty. Staff is extraordinarily friendly and service minded - and with a great sense of humor. The owner, Christina even sat down with us and tried to teach me the sounds of the Greeek alphabet.
My wife suffers from food allergies and the staff went out of their way to ensure she had a wonderful experience.
If you’re not allergic to dairy (not that all starters contains dairy products), I simply must encourage you work your way through the starters, of which several are “out of this world”.
For dessert, don't miss out on the white chocolate mousse with sugar pickled strawberries - it is heavenlish!!!
We had dinner at Oineas Restaurant 3 times during our short stay.
Not because we are not adventurous but because we cannot imagine we could find a better traditional restaurant.

We visited the restaurant on Sunday evening. We tasted very quality food. The liver was delicious as well as the salad with gruel. It's about a very atmospheric place with very helpful service always smiling. You got it guys!

We enjoyed this restaurant. The feta in filo with honey and balsamic was our favorite. But I write this because the servers were beyond exceptional and perfect. My wife did not enjoy her dish, and they saw immediately and insisted they make her a new dinner. She then ordered a vegetable risotto and it was perfect. Thank you so much for the care and love you gave us to make sure we had a great dinner. The fruit and liqueur at the end was a real treat. Thank you for all that you did to make our night great.
