Kokoretsi was dry and not with relevant juices (much roasted). Lamb was very good and well roasted. All other goodies were close to average quality.

This is far, far up in the mountains, but it's apparently a very old taverna going back to the 40s I believe. I had incredible lamb chops, so tender and succulent! They had an amazing pastry dish with eggplant and cheese. The french fries were great and fresh. Everyone else loved their dishes, including kokoretsi. Lovely ambience too, service a... More

We visited the said tavern three days ago. It was Easter Day and because of it, they ONLY served skewered lamb, nothing else in terms of meat (e.g. sausages or steaks ). We were 7 people out of which 2 were children bellow 5 years of age, i.e. 5 adults out of which only 3 like lamb and therefore we... More

There's lots of meat tavernas on Ag. Triados square on Penteli mountain but for us Krystallis is the best. Fresh salads, home made tzatziki, hand cut fries and truly delicious kolokithikeftedes (courgette fritters) are all available but the real star are the lamb chops cooked on an open flame grill. You order by the weight (500g is good for two... More

We found ourselves one day in the Pentelis Mountain Square where there are a couple of tavernas. We didn't know where to stay for lunch so we decided decided for Krystallis because it was full so we though that there should be a good reason. Indeed it was a good decision because the dishes were tasty, the food came quickly... More

This is like a mini vacation from Athens and it includes wonderful food! I love the location upon Pentili Mt. It is about 10 degrees cooler than down in Athens, maybe more. It is so relaxing sitting outside in the cool breeze eating great food. The squash balls appetizer is delicious. My favorite salad is the Kyristallis salad, which includes... More

Located in a busy with tavernas square, this is a good choice to enjoy a meat meal. Great lamb chops and kokoretsi, and good starters. Good value for money.

Okay, it goes without saying that the Greeks do grilling and rotisserie well; but this restaurant is definitely our "go to." The lamb is always excellent, whether off the spit or off the grill, and Penteli is high enough to be cooler than the city with an excellent view. The side vegetable dishes are also well done, and the kokoretsi... More
