This is a great place to spend a balmy summer evening outside. The food is good and not too expensive, although the Retsina wine (500cl) is really overpriced.
The atmosphere is sometimes spoiled by the attitude of the waiters who behave like they are doing people a favour by serving them and walk around like thugs.

No english menu & no Wi-Fi.
Came to have dinner in this place, which is one of the few places that stays open (late) - around 21:30 - 22:00 - and had to guess what to choose for dinner.

This is a very nice and calm restaurant, although quite big in space. The food is delicious and very tasty and the price is very acceptable. Since the meals are too big you can always ask the waiter for bringing it home. Looking forward to try it outside during summer...

The place offers an outstanding and affordable variety of traditional Greek starters (meze) and mains. All of them come in such generous portions that one could even have a truly fulling meal simply by combining different meze dishes. Its large number of choices also establishes the place as vegetarian-friendly. In general, the dishes are fresh and delicious but a menu of such a size also means that not every dish might always be equally outstanding.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
The very pleasant atmosphere is also one of the place's great advantages. Weather permitting, it is always enjoyable to make use of the extensive outdoor seating space. The indoor dining area is very spacious, easily accommodating 80 people, but the discreet lighting creates a cosy and agreeable atmosphere.
All in all a highly recommended restaurant.
