We love this restaurant which is in the Plaka neighborhood. Besides great food, it has a very nice atmosphere. There are tables on the sidewalk. All the food we ordered was very tasty. Loved the moussaka, very tasty. Really recommend it!

We were recommended this restaurant by friends in Australia and the taxi driver in Athens. We were apprehensive after reading other reviews on this site. It was terrific. Very busy. Good food. Good service. Live music the night we went (Saturday). We (2) shared the...More

Location, Location. This restaurant is in a great place to attract tourists. Our food was fine but nothing special. It certainly appears that the staff are going through the motions, not exactly enjoying their jobs. There was a man in a suit (the manager?) who...More

The man in the suit (who appears to be the manager) chooses to understand English when he wants to. We wanted to sit at a nice table but he rudely told us NO! The appetizers (dips) are not homemade and tasted like the commercial ones....More

Terrible place! The man in a cheap suit (guard?) asked me to leave because I wanted order only a dessert. I think the owner should fire him immediately. It’s madness

The view was indeed beautiful, the service was very good. The restaurant is very well located. The only problem was actually the food, we did not like it. Grilled fish without salt, I cannot recomend the place

Traditional Greek food done well, with a friendly, helpful staff. The restaurants are in a lovely location and the roof terrace a super place to sit and look at the view. The food was delicious and fresh..... the loukoumades (little Greek donuts) were delicious! Definitely...More

Large restaurant that spans 2 buildings and several outdoor tables. The view is gorgeous and we enjoyed some live music from the patio area. The lamb cooked in parchment paper reminded me of food my grandma makes. I'd highly recommend this restaurant over the touristy...More

The food was medium. The french fries kinda tasted like overused oil, and the moussakas were okay (not the best, but not the worst). The service was bad, they didn't seem to care much about us (a young couple visiting Athens), which contrasts to most...More

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
