We ate twice at the restaurant and had delicious greek food with a modern twist. Particularly recommended are the baby goat and the rabbit as well as the unusual vegetable side dishes and salads. Don't miss the fresly baked country bread - out of this worl and the desserts. The restaurant is incredibly busy with locals and it is advisable... More

We visited twice, once for dinner, once for lunch. I would HIGHLY recommend the graviera cheese, the variety of grilled mushrooms, the grilled souvlaki sticks, the slices of beef fillet medium rare, the orange pie with vanilla ice-cream and the crème brûlée. I would NOT recommend the burgers, the vegetable millefeuille and the profiteroles au chocolat. Staff very hard working,... More

Friends from the city suggested this restaurant for dinner during my holiday in Athens. It's a nice little restaurant with really nice original greek food, not the usual stuff you'll find not too far down the same road (the restaurant is just off Syntagma square) Fava salad, loukoumades and fried cheese with honey above all, but it's really hard to...

Stopped off here for some relatively light food mid-afternoon having already been to their Kifissia branch (close to our hotel up there): had a couple of mezes again but chose different ones from previous visit - excellent choices available (we had the deep fried Gruyere with honey and sesame seeds, the grilled meatballs with yoghurt and tomato sauce and fries)...

Our last but one of the tastiest meals we had during our 5 day visit. We went at lunchtime and the place was busy with locals enjoying the large variety of dishes on offer. Decor is fun, modern and colourful and there is a feeling of space. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, they bring you water and a shot... More

The classic greek cuisine meets the modern one, inside your plate. Every time I have visited this restaurant, I left with a full belly and a smile of satisfaction. The atmosphere is very cosy, the stuff is very friendly and the food is always delicious. The temporary dishes, in the first page of the menu are always a set of... More

Very good starters, delicious typical main dishes, quality wines. Good choice for a romantic dinner. Reasonable prices for the quality of the good (not a cheap option). Need to improve the service but this is the standard in Greece - "service desert land". Despite this, would recommend and be back again.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
