“Nice restaurant in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

My husband and I went here tonight for dinner and were very pleased with the level of service and attention given to us. It is located in Plaka right near several shops, other restaurants and an overall happening area. The food based on other places we have eaten at was average. Nothing that you are going to write home about. Overall, well worth the value and they even gave us our first round of wine drinks. Nice stop after a day of site seeing.

“Very nice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

A good place, but, I was a bit disappointed with the Mousaka'. It came with nothing on the plate, plus, it was pretty small. My spouse had the same thing (we both were craving Mousaka'), and was also not quite what we had come to expect. Good hard-working staff, but that can cause problems if you want to talk to a waiter !. Will consider other places, that might be a little more hungry to be exceptional, and not just process you through. No special post dinner treats here, and we ate there 3 times

“A cool oasis on a hot Athens day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

We were strolling through the Plaka in Athens on a scorching June day when we came upon a group of cafes surrounding a pretty tree filled square. In front of each restaurant an individual was soliciting business in what turned out to be a very spirited competition. We chose Vyzantino because of four things, it was the busiest by far, they showed us the kitchen, they had the most shaded outside seating and had multiple fans offering a refreshing breeze. The 'solicitor' turned out to be our server and serve he did! Always had a smile, suggested many local dishes and advised against some. We always had cold water and lots of ice. The local Greek beer, Alpha, was very good and fairly priced. It didn't take for lunch to be served I had a cumber and tomato salad, cold and fresh. My wife had a traditional hot Greek dish which she raved about. We ending up hanging out for 3 hours people watching and enjoying watching the "solicitors' compete for patrons. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we came back two days later with our teenage kids. They enjoyed it as well.

“Worst Restaurant in all of Greece”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

Succumbed to the guy out the front enticing us in .

Should have known better as the place was almost empty .

they did not seem to have any idea how to run a restaurant .

Waiter was totally disorganized.

Food was disgusting - Lamb swimming in stale oil and soggy potatoes.
