“Dishonest people. Do NOT eat there !!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

They seem to be friendly inviting you for a meal, but they don't tell you that credit cards are not accepted (sign is not visible). Once you ate you have no choice but look for cash. Complains to the owner do nothing.

My advice to all is DO NOT EAT THERE. Always ask for credit cards before you sit down.
I just don't like to deal with not honest people.

“Appalling”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Great setting. Charming girl to usher you to seats. Food awful. Service terrible and very expensive for Athens. If you had a choice between this place and not eating at all then starvation is the wiser bet.

I feel sick writing this review remembering how I felt after eating the muck they served. Avoid like the plague

“sidewalk meal”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

The food was ok. The service a little better. The best part was Nadia who was trolling for tourist passersby.

“Plaka tourist trap - avoid, avoid, avoid!!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

After strolling the streets of Plaka for a good 20 minutes we chose Adrianos because of its lovely street setting and the seemingly sweet girl saddled with the job of enticing unwary tourists to be scammed out of their money.

We had barely sat down when a large bottle of mineral water was opened and poured at our table despite pleas that we only be given tap water. The waiter continued to pour and left us mid-sentence. We asked the girl who had seated us whether the water was complimentary, and she told us there was a charge. We insisted we hadn't asked for it and stated we would not pay.

The water was quickly whisked away by an irritated waiter, and we were also informed that the "free" bread that had quietly been placed on the table was in fact not free, and it too was removed.

In actual fact the mineral water bottle looked quite dirty, and the willingness of the staff to pour it out instead of simply allowing us to drink it free of charge suggests to me that it is just tap water anyway - a further scam.

After that we were treated terribly - the waiter was extremely sour and rude, and made no acknowledgement when we thanked him for placing our food on the table. We ate our gyros and Greek salad with none of the calm and pleasantness the picturesque seating had seemed to promise and worried whether the bill would be correct when it arrived.

The food was fair, but nothing to write home about, and certainly not excellent by comparison to other restaurants nearby. It was also quite pricey.

When the waiter, still brazenly rude, did bring the bill we were relieved to see that we had been charged only for what we ordered.

Nevertheless, we would not return, and are disgusted still that this establishment would so easily rob tourists of their money.

Buyer beware!
