I avoided the hotel's recommendation and trusted TA's user reviews. And they didn't let me down.

Don't lose your courage with the entrance. Behind, you'll find delicacy as we did. It has an open kitchen. You can see while they cook. All meals and mezes were delicious.

We had three main (swordfish, kalamari) and some mezes plus ouzo and paid €45.

Staff was nice. The owner (I suppose) was sitting near our table with his friends. He must have eye on our table, he was worried about what my daughter ate. She eats so little. He asked if she didn't like or is something wrong.

Only problem is fear of loosing control and eating too much :)

Unlike most of the restaurants in the area it has a short menu- always a good sign. Friendly manager and good service. The started was definitely cooked to order as chef can view in the kitchen. The fried octopus was succulent , having the texture of pork. Main courses where lamb casserole and moussaka , both were similar to local Greek home cooking( similar to that cooked By a friend's Greek mother!) local wine, excellent quality at reasonable price. 2 started, 2 mains, plus free olives and carafe of wine great value at 35 Euros.

Food was good, not great or excellent but certainly palatable and not expensive. Full house so it seems quite popular. I/we might go back.

Returned after a couple of years and still love it as much as ever. Delighted to see it reopened after being closed last summer. Same great cook and manager. Air conditioning on a hot night can be better than eating outdoors. We had a terrific fava, a huge pork chop, and excellent swordfish. This restaurant is a treasure.

Visited this restaurant after becoming curious about people disappearing into the basement. Ordered Greek salad and fried eggplant as appetisers - both highly recommended, portions were generous! Mains were lamb casserole and fried cod. The lamb was soft and succulent, super tender and served with carrots and chips/fries. Must order early, was sold out by the time someone else wanted to order. Fried cod was 2 while pieces of fresh cod, had some bones. A tad salty but still good. Service was efficient and hospitable, the owner was really friendly and speaks good English. Even had dessert on the house (warm pudding fresh from the oven, yumm!)
Our last night in Athens, would return here if we ever come back.
