It is always the same crowded with people they want to be seen. They have not spent a penny the last 20 years and the set up is really uncomfortable and the tables very small with uncomfortable chairs. The table you get is 40 %...More

Elegant yet casual restaurant in Kolonaki. Rather crowded, but the staff keep up. A good selection of wines, and a varied menu.

Everything the best by far from the rest! Ratka, the owner, is always there, in order to supervise herself the whole operation, asking her guests if they have any complains. Many times, to the very faithful guests, she is offering the deserts.

The atmosphere is unique, and the crowd is very interesting. It is a posh place for the upper society of Athens, and you can meet from politicians to singers. The food is of very good quality ( from sushi to bon filet and carpaccios) but...More

Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is
home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label
stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by
dressing in their finest and spending hours in the
trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most
expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a
