Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Americans… LOOK NO FURTHER. THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO. Customer service is absolute trash in America and expected to tip 20%. This place has the best customer service I have ever been to and they know how to treat the customer. The food you...ask? FANTASTIC. Ruined Americanized Greek food for me forever. Food was authentic, tasty, fresh and absolutely on point. The energy/joy/happiness from the staff is unmatched. You may think, “Why should I listen to this random guy making a review?” Well I’ll tell you. Because I’m insanely picky eater and I had no problem here. Everything was fantastic from the Tzatziki sauce and pita bread to the chicken gyro, everything was so good. And yes they did butter our biscuits and give us a free dessert and limoncello shot like I think they do for everyone but it just shows how far they will go to satisfy their customers. Love this place and HIGHLY recommend. Stop thinking about it and just GO HERE!! lolMore

This place is a great local restaurant with authentic Greek cuisine. The food is good. The service is excellent. Our waiter, Vasiliy, is friendly and very attentive to his guests' needs. We got a complimentary dessert that my kids really enjoyed it. Apparently, the place...makes its own wine that was great to my taste. I highly recommend this place to be checked if you are in town. Thank you Liondi for making our dinner so pleasant.More

This is the best restaurant I've been in Greece. Their moussaka and grilled octopus are pure perfection, and the service, exceptional. These guys truly love their jobs and it shows!

After we went to the Akropolis Museum we had to find a good place for lunch. This restaurant stood out to us because of the authentic atmosphere. The Tsaziki was a good starter and paired with the pita bread a good choice to share. For...the main course we had the Moussaka which was amazing and the baklava as dessert at the end was great. Another good part about the experience was the good service. Our waiters name was Kakos and we can recommend his service.More

Warm and welcoming! We thoroughly enjoyed an early dinner! We had a wonderful sampling of traditional Greek foods to start, the stuffed grape leaves and tzatziki were fresh and delish! Grouper for two, the prawns and lemon potatoes amazing!

Leondi is a lovely little restaurant. The food was definitely the best that I’d eaten in Athens restaurants. I ate at Leondi twice during my stay, as the food was superb and the waiters and chef were incredibly friendly. On my 2nd visit, the restaurant...staff remembered my previous visit and greeted me like an old friend. I’m glad I found such a great restaurant in Athens and I would definitely recommend. My favourite dish was the chicken souvlaki, which was very lean and tender. The award-winning Moussaka was excellent too, as were the other dishes I tried.More

Visited the restaurant for dinner, after already being in Athens for a few days! All of the staff were welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere and ambience of the place was relaxed and pleasant, and as for the good - just WOW! Best roasted lamb I’ve...had since being in Athens, starters were delicious and desserts to die for! You’d be a fool to miss out on eating here if you’re in Athens! Superb!More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

I don't remember if it was on the menu. Just lie the others, my friend and I often got free desserts. We ate at Liondi about 6 times while we were in Athens.

We were just there in February and at the very least, Stavros was still there chatting with all his guests, so I think you won't be disappointed!
