The service was quite nice, but the glasses for wine was with prints of lipstic. Furthermore, we took the grilled beef which was disgusting, the rose color of it you can see at the image. I have no idea if it was really beef. We...More

Fantastic eggplant with iogurt recipe and tremendous toast with spinach and eggs. The ingredients were fresh, the place is cozy and the service is brilliant. 5/5

Perhaps the best restaurant in the neighbourhood. Food was extremely well prepared, nice salads, pasta and meat dishes. The recipes are surprisingly complex and far from just hastily thrown together. Will definitely return next time I am in Athens.

Nice location in the midst of the fabric shops. Pleasant decor. Not very friendly service. The food is not your usual taverna fare: most dishes they said are from Crete or Chios. The dishes were tasty but enormous!

Sardines were excellent, fresh and tasty. Decent prices too. Also try the stuffed chicken leg, very good too.

Description
Downtown, busy and small family restaurant, with a few tables outside. Fresh, local food with a twist, cooked with love and best quality ingredients. It is placed among cafes and bars, so it is the right place to feel the rythm of the city!
