Recommendations for a restaurant

Hi to all. I will be in Athens next week with my wife and would like to take out 4 other Greek friends. We will be staying at a hotel near Syntagma square. I am looking for a REALLY good restaurant in terms of food quality and ambience. Being a professional cook my self, I would definitely like to go to a restaurant that serves "new" Greek cuisine (or any other cuisine for that matter) and DEFINITELY avoid the tourist traps. In the past I visited Butcher Shop and Sardelles (good food but overpriced and hurried service - reminded me of fast food, just eat and leave), Tzitzikas and Mermigas (first 2 times really good food, last time mediocre), Furin Kazan (really good food, a bit pricey but worth it), a restaurant in Golden Hall (pretentious and pricey) and a couple more in Gazi (do not remember their name - good food but nothing memorable to make me return) and a few more in Psirri (quality varied over return visits). So in short: looking for a good restaurant, location does not matter, where 6 friends will have a casual dinner over GOOD food and have fun. I would even consider Microlimano (been there only a couple of times - pricey but good view). Thanks to all.

Andreas

Thank you. I have been to both Spondi and Varoulko, GREAT restaurants and you do pay for it, however you only live once. For this type of dinner though (casual, loud conversation, fun) I would prefer something closer to many little choices to share (mezedakia or meat restaurants), possibly with little music - I read many good reviews for Kozi's but it is kind of far away. The taxi ride will cost more than the dinner.

You could try Oineas in Psirri. Great Greek food with a modern twist.

I would recommend Mono in Plaka. I just wrote a pending review, but there are other reviews here on TripAdvisor. Nice ambience and really creative good food.

We love Scholandia (spelling?) in the Plaka District. Various menu depending on the number of diners. The last time there Oct. 2011 we had the "dinner" for 2 at 28 euros which included 5 choices of metzes, loaf of Greek bread, liter of house wine, liter of bottled water, and dessert. It was fantastic!
