“Authentic Greece, but...SLOW service! be patient!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

I must say food here is great. I really like the small appetizer mix dishes here... but the service is not great, you really have to be patient. Some waiters are useless- they forget your drinks, they don't pay attention to you... the place is always crowded though, reservation required unless you go there very early evening.

“Awful arrogant service. Utterly dissapointed and disgusted”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I've never experienced that kind of awful arrogant service before, I am still shocked and disgusted. I was there with 5 other friends on last Sat evening. Our waitress was arrogant and unfriendly with us from the very beginning. She literally threw starters on the table in the way that grilled cheese slipped off the plate onto the trousers of my friend. When this friend asked for another glass of wine and gave the waitress her glass with a few drops of already warm white wine, the waitress gave her a most arrogant look and said: "Germans would drink it all."

The evening went on. We were waiting for the other friends to join us and when they came, we wanted to order main dishes. It was around 11 p.m. But then they told us that the kitchen was already closed. They could have let us know a bit in advance but they just did not care at all. Because it was a birthday celebration of one of us, we did not want to just stand up and go. So we talked to all possible waiters asking them to take our order! And when they finally agreed to, our waitress was already so angry with us that she would not listen and just go away without saying anything when we were still ordering food!

I am utterly disgusted with this service. The food when it finally came was ok though. Guys, if you want to go there - don't go, save your nerves, time and money for something better. There are enough good Greek restaurants with good service in Munich.

“Disappointed 😕”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

We have been to this restaurant a number of times before and were always pleased with our dining experience there..tonight was a true let-down,something that truly disturbs me when a restaurant can not keep up its standard of quality on a day to day basis.
The cold starter plate was a disaster and the 2 fish we ordered were under grilled and fatty in taste.Their wines were understocked and did not have our first selection.Such a shame for a place we truly enjoyed in the past.

“Greek chaos-restaurant with an authentic buzz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

This place is noisy. It's also cramped, chaotic, and now and again someone will forget an order. However, the place has a certain charm and for once each waiter has a personality they seem encouraged to express. You might be unlucky and get a grumpy one, or one who has had too many ouzos with the tables he is serving, but this drinking-with-the-guests joviality is part of the vibe. Obviously you will hate this place if you aren't prepared to be patient, sit shoulder-to-shoulder with other guests, or accept a bit of bedlam, but if you go there with the right expectations you will be treated to really decent souvlaki and the rest, along with a lively, bustling atmosphere (Something which can be lacking in Munich's establishments!). So, to recap: fun, very greek, good food, loud and a good warm-up to a night-out or a nice step between restaurant and party for those birthday dinners.

“Not worth all the apparent hype!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

The place is seriously packed. You are sat so close to everyone else in the restaurant that it's difficult to ever get comfy. There are tables so close to the bar that you risk having someone drink poured down your back as they stand at the bar or if one of the rude waiting staff barges past delivering one of their late meals.

We were a rather large group and had been told before we would all have to have a set starter, which i thought was a bit cheeky and then when the starter came i was shocked. It was a slither of pepper with some cream cheese. A total rip off. Oozo was almost forced upon you, but then it was also there on the bill when we went to pay. The drink orders were slow, if they ever came at all. We waited almost 2hours from ordering to receiving our main meal and even then they couldnt get it right. A 'feldsalat' was missing and one person got his meal about 20min before everyone else. Total shambles and the waiting staff just didnt care.

Also this serviette throwing thing was a bit uncalled for. What upset me the most though was how drunk some of the people in there were. This is not a club. This is a waiter playing youtube requests on his mobile phone. After a while they allowed smoking inside but didnt open a window and when i went outside to get away from this i was told i couldnt sit on any of there 50 chairs because their beer garden was closed. This is ridiculous. in the ladies toilet there were two girls not much older than 18 throwing up and crying about how drunk they were. But the best was yet to come, an incredibly drunk man was dancing on one of the tables and then fell off but he had a bottle oozo in his hand so he ended up pouring half of this down my trousers. Why was he not taken home? nonono, they just continued serving him.

Honestly, I won't be recommending this to anyone, whilst the food was nice, it certainly wasn't nice enough to cancel out the drunk clientele, the rude staff, the uncomfortable layout and the added on booze costs.
