“Friendly and reliable”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Returning to Athens on business within three weeks of a previous visit, Filippou proved a perfect choice for an evening rendez vous in Kolonaki with a Greek friend. She was delighted with the choice and fully at ease with the amiable staff. They are happy to discuss the evening's menu. Viewing the dishes persuaded me to take the delicious sole and Greek style vegetables. Strolling through bright and lively Kolonaki after an enjoyable meal is very pleasant. I'll be back again.

“Traditional Greek restaurant ”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

It was recommended by greeks to us, and it was a good choice.
It is not a fancy restaurant but it has a great location -Kolonaki-
Food was great, the salmon and grouper were delicious, Greek salad and cabbage and carrots salad were very fresh.
Chicken in brood was simple but good with a side of pilaf rice and the fried calamaris were soft inside with a crunchy crust.
The service was excellent, very attentive and polite. The waiter spoke very good English.
The restaurant was smoke free -at least while we were there nobody smoked.
I recommend this restaurant because it is not expensive, has a good location, great simple Greek food, take away too, and it is familiar.
I would return to it on my next visit to Athens.

“Real Greek food”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

A very old taverna at Kolonaki,I remember it since I was borne there,ma family used to buy food from there,also famous for its perfect retsina.The location is very good only 5 minutes from Kolonaki square and particularly at summer evenings it's nice to have a table at the stairs.The almost home made food is very tasty and in good portions while the service is excellent.There is a nice selection of wines but try the "hima" (not labelled) white wine,you will certainly enjoy a cosy and tasty dinner.
