“Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Went there around 9pm on a Thursday nice, most of other places were full and this one had quite a few empty tables. I thought it looked nice and it said that trip advisor rating was 4.5. Now I really wonder how it managed to get such rating. I ordered moussaka and fresh fried potatoes. The potatoes were alright but they were obviously the frozen ones, not fresh. Moussaka was a real disappointment. I paid €8.50 for it and it was obviously cooked quite a while ago and just heated. The parmesan cheese on its' top was so hard, they didn't even heat it enough to make the cheese melt. Such a waste of money. Don't recommend this place to anyone, better choose something else!

“AVOID - Fails to live up to Trip Advisor 'rating'”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Had dinner there due to the Trip Advisor award certificates (4.5 star?) promoted prominently at the entry point for the outside eating area. The poor reviews are correct. "Beef" was explained when delivered on the plate as a "mistake in the menu" - it was not beef. Mousaka was a slab with no accompaniments. Selection of starters was very limited (four items only).

Service was just ok - but when asked to explain why the grilled beef was more like a blood-soaked pork chop, staff became non-attentive. To pay with a card you need to walk to another restaurant to reach the machine - they would not bring it to you. Food is obviously re-heated and brought on relay from a kitchen which seems to serve many eating areas. This is a tourist food outlet - pay and they don't expect you to return. If you want a nice (genuine Greek) meal and good (friendly) service, keep walking. Tepina/Terina is a tourist trap.

“Disappointed with the Frozen Margarita”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

I suppose we're to blame for walking into an "Italian" place in Athens. The beer was ok, the risotto was good but the margarita pizza was atrocious. It felt like a pre prepared pizza was bought frozen from the supermarket and reheated in the oven and served to us. We're definitely not going back.

“Good food and location, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

After being enticed into the restaurant by the tout our experience faltered with poor service. The food took over an hour to arrive and it wasn't until I asked the waiter was there problem in the kitchen that any movement transpired. The excuse of a busy night did not hold water as there were a number of vacant tables. On a second take the food eventually arrived. No apology about the delay. I would not be in a hurry to return when next in Athens as there are plenty of restaurants offering excellent service. Disappointed!

“Unfriendly inattentive staffs - stay away !!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Food quality and quantity is fair. Not a great value for money . Owner is not friendly at all and staffs are not welcoming

I won't come again, neither recommend it

There are lot of places in Plaka worth the visit and spending your dollars . The way how they approached you to come try their food, changes very fast after they get you inside their restaurant .... Nothing to do with the legendary " Greek hospitality"

Stay away and don't get closer!!!!!
