Our hotel recommended this place because we asked for somewhere with live Greek music. Rigas is not not quite what we were looking for but I think that's because we were a little too young to appreciate it.

This place is a bit dated, I'm sure it was amazing in the 90's. It's a fixed menu for 35 euros plus drinks and the food was bland. What kind of saved the experience was the entertainment - theres a group of traditional Greek dancers which are fantastic.

It was really just adequate, I wouldn't recommend it.

I went to this restaurant because some Japanese guidebooks recommended. I could choose dinner course or just drinking. The dinner course includes appetizer, salad, main dish and dessert. The show started from 21:30 and finished before midnight.

I enjoyed seeing Greek traditional dance and oriental (belly) dance very much. Above all, Greek traditional dance was very acrobatic and impressive. At the end of the show, they performed "Zorba the Greek" dance. That was so artistic that many guests moved closer to the stage and took photos and videos.
