This restaurant was for sure our highlight during our visit in Athens. The restaurant is situated in a so to speak special area, and almost the only house suited for living persons. We took the 18 dishes tasting menu with paring wines. All made to perfection. For sure a modern kitchen, and the chef does play a lot. The only thing, that for me is bad style is, that they ask for money for the coffee, you have not free water, and i missed the dessert wine. When you pay around 200 EURO each person, you dont ask money for water and coffee. Better ask 210 EURO for the menu and include the coffee and the water.

On arrival you may not immediately see the restaurant, we walked past it in what appears to be a slightly scary suburb. But once inside....
We selected the full degustation s meal and included the wine, well worth it. The service was attentive, but not over the top (which can often occur in these restaurants). There was a true theatre to the prevention of the courses, the picnic left us amazed, the granita Greek salad was a surprise. The selection of wines, both Greek and French, lovely and well matched. I could go on about every course, but the orange explosion, the pinnacle if the dish, amazing. I will return on our next Athens trip.

The location of the restaurant is hidden within the neighborhood. We get there by cab, the driver knows the location however, he has difficulties entering the alley. So we have to get down by the main road and take a small walk into the neighborhood. Of course, the driver direct us :)

The 17 courses are interesting visually and the taste! they are able to accomodate our special needs since the first time we made the reservation. We sat at the rooftop, which we can hear some buzzing around the area (kids playing) which is more localized.

The service was exceptionally good! I even noticed that they have rhythm while serving and clearing the table.

Some of my favourite food are the picnics, foie gras truffle and snails.

We took the dive and ordered the 17 courses with wine. One of the most creative meals we have ever had. Definitely deserving of the Michelin Stars. The Picnic might be the most interesting course of food we have ever had.

Restaurant is located in a bit fuzzy neighbourhood and has no sign at all outside. There is a porter, however, so you can't mistake. Inside there's an oasis. Interior decoration in very stylish. Service is excellent. And, of course, what's the most important, the food is fantastic! I recall only three restaurants at the same level, and those all have three Michelin stars. Strongly recommended!
