“Wonderful food and service, cant miss it”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

We decided to spend our last night in Athens at To Kafeneio, it didnt disappoint us. This little gem is located at an alley way, low profile as they dont need a person to stand outside to "fish" more customers in, perhaps a good sign means they arent lack of business (literally means good food i believe). Food is unique and tastes amazing. Very attentive service and generous portion are also reasons to go back. Highly recommended ;)

“Great Greek food - Eat the Meatballs!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We ordered a 1/2 liter of house wine - and asked the server to order for us. We had Fava Beans, Eggplant Fritters, Halloumi Cheese and Meatballs in "The Sauce" Everything was delicious and we were happy and full. The outside was packed, so we sat inside - what a charming place, it looks old with wooden beam ceiling, stone walls. Busy with the locals, I think we were the only tourists in the place. We really enjoyed everything. So far, we've used tripadvisor the whole time (hotel, activities and all the restaurants) and have yet to be unhappy. Great trip.

“Cosy place that serves Great Greek Food”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Went here for lunch on a lazy afternoon. Had the meatballs in the house sauce, saganaki, zucchini fritters and tzaziki. Loved it all. Also had their own oak barrel wine which went perfectly with our meal. Service was quick and friendly and they served us a very delicious complimentary liqueur at the end of the meal.

“Very good food and excellent service”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Went for an evening meal in this lovely traditional cosy restaurant after reading recommendation from TripAdvisor. Friendly and speedy serving on food and drinks. We ordered several meze to try- zucchini fritters, marinated mackerels, meat ball with the sauce, a salad and grilled cheese dish.

Reasonable price for drinkings.
Great pricing and lovely atmosphere to enjoy an evening meals.

Slight down fall was that there were other dinner parties there smoking indoors, slightly unpleasant when dining.
