Excellent !
Very nice restaurant in the center of Athens, just a few meters from Ermou. Good food and fantastic prices. We tried several dishes, all were interesting and delightfully original. We highly recommend the couscous salads / lentils / chickpeas, the schnitzel is very good, the burger is juicy and delicious and our 1.5 years old daughter loved the manestraki chicken. And all at very good prices (salads around 6-7euros and main dishes 7-9 euros). The environment is very friendly, smiling staff as well as an emphasis on cleanliness. The shop is also known for its cocktails.

My mom and I visited this bar during Easter holliday and we tryed the lemmonades. The atmosphere was really nice and eventough it wasn't very crowded we felt very comfortable thanks to the great service that didn't bother us unnecessary. The man behind the bar was also very friendly. The lemmonades we drank were very nice and eventough the flavours are pretty odd I recommend u try them for sure!! They are defenetely worth it.

This is a gem of a vegetarian restaurant. Dishes blends traditional greek cousine with freshness taste of vegetables. The setting is pretty cozy with a taste of retro'. They may also suggest occasionally a fish dish for pescatarians (my friend for example got their salmon suggestion cooked with oranges which was superb).

The restaurant is currently not signed on google maps and no web site is available. You may retrieve it however from their Facebook page.

A dinner of two with entree and two mains and a desser overall cost 30 EUR (a glass of wine included).

You may want to place a reservation as the place fills very fast and seems popular amongst locals.

It's a restaurant where you can find, probably, the most tasty burgers that you will ever try. The service was great.
There was a little waiting before someone asks us what we wanted, but probably just noticed that because we had a limited period of time to have dinner.

I really recommend going there. Actually we'll come back.

They offered us free wine glasses when we told them it was my birthday. The waiter/bartender was very generally friendly. Everything we ordered was exceptional!
