“overrated”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I heard from friends about this restaurant about something special with great food. I went for the first time yesterday night with friends coming from Paris and Belgium and we were totally disappointed. The food was not mediocre it was very bad. The dips, the salads, the main courses. My friend described as "airplane food". Definetely is not is not greek food or even greek. For example I had hunkar begendi, the meat was so hard and the aubergine pourret was like premade Knorr. Nothing compared to other places. We were seated outside in a small sidewalk crammed between cars and almost seated next to other people from other tables. I dont understand why this place has good reviews..The only positive thing was the service was decent. Athens in general has great places to eat and relatively cheaper than this. I will never go again.

“You should visit it......”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Mavro Provato (black sheep) is the best restaurant in Pagrati (area of Athens)!! Food, sweets and price are perfect! It has very very good food! People there are very polite! It would be preferable you make a reservation before your visit, as it is full very often!!

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

By going early there is no problem getting a table, and it is very well worth it. The best meal I have had in Athens, and I have been to Athens many times.

“Small hidden gem”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Although I have lived for more than 5 years in Athens, I found out this place in one of my recent trips to Athens. The place is a neighborhood far away from the tourist attractions, surrounded though by cafes and other taverns.
You can call it Greek alternative tavern. The inside seating is for no more than 25 persons and there is also available place in the pavement with heaters.
The food is very good and value for money.
A place you should visit when in Athens
