“Souvlaki!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

My husband and I just ate an amazing meal here. Friendly service, delicious food and yummy vino.

We ordered a starter each and were given water, bread and olive tapenade. Our mains were huge.

We had the restaurants own wine and it was only €13 for a bottle.

Highly recommended with a beautiful outside area.

“Second time around, just as amazing as the first;)”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We decided to eat here our last night in Greece even though we had already been there. Nico was just as welcoming, the food was just as amazing! They had a live band inside playing greek music that sounded great too. I only wish we had more time to experience more of the food and hospitality of Lithos! A must while you're in Athens!!!

“Very good food, nice ambience and service in Psirri”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We enjoyed dinner at Lithos our first night in Athens and after four days of very good meals, this friendly place stood up as one of the best we visited. The traditional Cretan Salad was generous and delicious, the fried calamari was tender (unlike some others we encountered elsewhere) and the souvlaki kebabs were delicious. Wine was reasonable and a range of choices available. This is more of a 'restaurant' in atmosphere than a Taberna, not a bad thing at all, just a little different. The tables were well spaced, we enjoyed eating outside after a horrible winter in New England, and all in all I would definitely return and recommend this restaurant.
