“Exellent”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We were looking for a place to eat while visiting the 6th arrondissement when we spotted this little greek restaurant. It was not too crowded, as it was quite early in the evening (7pm), so we gave it a chance. Being familiar with greek cusine, I have to say my expectations were high ; and indeed, I was not disappointed. First of all, the staff was extremely nice ( as Greek people often are ) and effective. As for the food, - and this is where it becomes interesting - it was like nothing I've ever tasted before. All the meals were revisited in a whole new original way. Needless to say, everything was delicious.
Overall, it was probably the best food I've eaten in Paris.

“excellent & original Greek food”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We weren't expecting to find a great Greek restaurant in Paris, but indeed this is it. Better than most of the reasonably priced French restaurants we've tried. Prices are reasonable, given it is in a tourist area. Staff is very friendly & accommodating.The chef puts an original twist on old favorites such as moussaka. Worth fitting this into your itinerary. We would definitely return. It's a small restaurant & crowded, so it helps to make a reservation.

“Evi Evane traiteur”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We finally gave Evi Evane a try! We went to the Saint Placide location which is mainly for take away.You can have lunch there but the seating area is restricted (only four seats!).

We chose a few things from the limited choice on offer. We came in at 7:30pm on a saturday and they were about to close so most food had been put away. The lady behind the counter was courteous enough to serve us before closing the shop.
We enjoyed most of the food but LOVED the rolled eggplant slices filled with feta and kasseri cheese. We'll definitely be going back just for those!
We had the eggplant caviar with some fresh bread. It was light and not oily as eggplant caviar can sometimes be.
We sampled the veal meatballs that came in a sweet tomato sauce and thought they were good.
We liked the stuffed calamari (with rice, mussels, veggies) but thought it lacked flavour. The gratin eggplant with meat topped with potato purée was tasty but quite stodgy.
We finished off with a baklava. It was underwhelming. It was soggy and lacked any sort of crunchiness. On top of that it was bland. It ended up in the bin. A shame considering it was €3.20 a piece!

Overall the food was nice, although rather expensive (total cost €38.50). We will try the traiteur again as we didn't get to sample many of their dishes. We are hopeful that next time we'll be happier with the choice and food.

“nice find”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This is a true greek owned greek restaurant, the food is amazing. The staff are friendly. The place is a little cosy but adds to the atmosphere. I go to Greece a lot and the food was better tha many places I've been to in Greece! The price is reasonable, although the wine was a little bit on the expensive side..so slow down on the booze and eat more :-) I was hosting a party of 10 so we managed to have half of the menu to try, as an example the stifado was melt in your mouth, the spanakotiropita crackly and full of taste, the taramasalata one of the best I ever tasted…

“Tasty and Filling Meal”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I had a wonderful meal here in late September 2013. I had the leg of lamb, which came with potatoes and vegetables, and a nice wine. The service was prompt and attentive. The cost was quite reasonable for the meal and wine. My only disappointment was that the restaurant had many non-French customers; however, that did not take away from the meal itself--just the overall ambience due to hearing English as the dominant language between customers.
