We tried this place as it was near the Haxel were we were staying, and thought we'll give it a try, since it seemed clean and pleasant.

The flirty hostess standing outside, while we were trying to have a look at their menu, should have been our warning sign.

In reality the waiters were extremely unfriendly, and the food was borderline disgusting.

Both of the chicken breasts we've ordered were dry/over cocked and the messes were small and uninteresting, not to mention the strange and unappetizing "Greek salad".

To make things worse, there's a gloomy atmosphere in the place, which makes you wanna leave as soon as possible, which we did, skipping desert.

Nice place and great food, but service could be improved.
Menu del dia with good price and good variety of dishes options.

We stumbled on this restaurant after we arrived in Barcelona on Easter Sunday. We walked around to find a restaurant that was open, and we found this Greek paradise! Our waiter, Joan, was helpful and friendly. We started with hummus and tzatziki, which were terrific! The chicken souvlaki and the dolmades were excellent as well! After our meal, we were offered (and accepted) a complimentary glass of ouzo.

A Sunday afternoon, late March all of the restaurants i had marked with TripAdvisor around our hotel were closed. I knew there was a Greek restaurant around the area and we decided to try it, being curious how it would represent our own country's cuisine abroad. I was not disappointed. Our orders were meat oriented (not fish) and at the end, our stomach was full (like back home :)) and in our mind there was the sense that the place was really serving Greek food, not pretending to.

We stumbled upon this restaurant as we were looking at menus from the street. The waiter was very friendly and greeted us and described their food. He was right, it was excellent. We had a large group (8), and they made us feel at home. The best food choices were the risotto with shrimp and mussels (near perfect), a sampler for 2 of Greek meat dishes (lamb chop, sausage, steak kabob, chicken kabob, and meatball. Greek wine recommendation was also excellent. We would recommend this restaurant. Oh, the swordfish was also very good (usually restaurants overcook swordfish, they did not!).
