Greek food from a northeastern Greece variation. Fresh, tasty and delicious. Very much like "grandma used to make." The owner was very courteous, friendly and accommodating. His recommendations were spot on. A great bargain of a meal.

Over the years I have been to this restaurant several times, and was always satisfied from both the food itself and the service. Fairly priced, with generous portions and no frills homey recipes of traditional Greek cuisine.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
