“Quite alright”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Visited the restaurant partly due to the fact that the place seemed nice and fairly priced and partly because of the reception the restaurant received on Tripadvisor. The food was good, though nothing out of the ordinary. Our waiter was observant and helpful picking the right, local wine for the food. It was nice coming to a restaurant that didn't need for their waiters to "fetch" people as they would walk past - seems a bit rare in Athens. Recommendation: The lamb snippets were wonderful.

“You must try the moussaka”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel receptionist and I'm glad we tried it. The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed - we sat in the courtyard behind the main building which was beautifully lit and was a perfect way to wind down after a busy day. There were some expensive dishes on the menu, but the moussaka was reasonably priced and absolutely delicious.

“Great cozy location, delicious food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

The true example of greek food. Love their service from the hot towel in the beginning to the surprise cake at the end.
They have three spots in their restaurant to eat inside, outside and patio which was under the tent. Love their appetizers, salads and gourmet food.

“Pretty quiet restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

Pretty restaurant on edge of Plaka district. Felt like sitting in an ancient Greek villa with all the wall and ceiling paintings. There was a pretty courtyard to sit in too. On a warm summer evening, that must be lovely spot to dine. However, this was a Monday evening in mid March and, including us, there were 5 people in the whole restaurant during our visit, so a bit stilted in atmosphere to say the least.

Food was good though - went for a total Greek experience. Greek salad starter was very good and would have made a sufficient main course - so generous in size, must have been 4 or 5 large ripe tomatoes in the salad ! I followed this with mousaka - another large portion which I could not finish. It was very tasty but not quite how I imagined (drier) - maybe I was used to less authnetic versions back home ?!

Yet, despite both of us being full, we shared a lemon sorbet that was well worth making room for !
