“Uplifting food”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I write this comment in English because visitors who come to Athens are more exposed than natives to bad restaurants which promise too many things, offering nothing at the end and suck their wallet. Especially those resturants that are within the historical centre when the majority of visitors gather daily. So as a native Athenian, I highly recommend this small but really cute restaurant for its simplicity, uplifting and imaginative tastes, friendly and fast service and cheap prices. A bargain that you need to live in the city to discover unless you are lucky enough to discover during your sight seeing in the city.

“Good food, friendly staff, nice alternative to usual Greek fare”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Headed there late one night and got last orders in just before 10pm. The interior is impressive and staff are nice.
Good spread of vegetarian dishes and a white wine. Dishes were not spectacular for the price, but it was a good meal for our vegetarian friend.
Personally, I wouldn't return, but glad we went there for something different.

“Heaven in Greece! ”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

This is such an amazing place to go, the food, atmosphere, people, all spectacular. As a vegan visiting from the US this place was heaven. Their Greek salad, forgot the actual name, with chickpeas and arugula with a lemony dressing was the best salad I think I have ever eaten. The yellow curry option was also a big hit, very nice break from all the Greek food around. All around the place was absolutely incredible, very worth the price, going back again tomorrow.

“Deliciously healthy”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Felt this place deserved a comment.
As we are a party of seven, we rang in advance to book a table.
The juices were delicious, food was quick and amazing. Worth every penny.

“tasty fusion!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I've been there twice so far and I really liked the place. Service is amazing and very friendly. Prices range: 6,50 to 13,50 euros. Open from 11.00
I had very good black rice pasta with vegetables and then one of the cold specialities (peppers, aubergine, onion etc. with naan), but it was to sour for me and the naan was too tiny and wasn't a naan actually. The sheep milk ice-creams are a little bit bitter, but still good. And bagels look amazing!
I will definitely visit this place again.
