“Delicious and Fun”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Johnny and the rest of the staff served delicious food with big grins on their faces. Clearly they love what they're doing.
There are two restaurants run by the same family within blocks of each other, so if one is closed, don't despair--go to the other.

“Authentic Athens - freshest food served simply”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

I was with Dillon above.We came across a small collection of tables outside a very modest looking 'cafe' at a crossroads in Plaka whilst trying to get away from touristland. A glance at the food on the tables packed by locals was enough. A riot of colour from some interesting salads, (including 'boiled vegatable' which doesn't sound inspiring but was a great mix inc broccoli and polenta) and various fish and meze dishes. I has the best taramasalata ever, creamy, fishy and no pink dye and a plate overflowing with fried red mullet. The service was superb. Unpretentious, knowledgeable, helpful and witty delivery from the single waiter/maitre D. If I owned a restaurant I would poach him ! We had a great time and felt we had experienced a real taste of the city. They don't do coffee...I guess this is to turn over the tables

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

The area was recommended to us by a local travel agent as being where local people eat. This was certainly true. The food is simple local cuisine using fresh ingredients. The service was excellent and the person doing front of house made sure we didn't over order and his suggestions were spot on. We started with the cooked vegatable salad and some cooked beans. Between the four of us we had small calamari which were soft and delicious, fried sardines and small red snapper which were a delight and meatballs that were full of taste.

Given its cental location the prices were low and overall it was a delightful experience that I would recommend to anyone.
