“Good food, slow service!!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a beautiful restaurant in the Plaka. We walked from our hotel which was convenient. The food was good but the service was very slow and I thought all the wait staff was RUDE!! Also, they only take cash so my husband had to go find an ATM before we could eat!! I thought that was bizarre for a very nice expensive restaurant!! I would not recommend this restaurant as there are so many in the Plaka to choose from!!

“avoid this place!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Fancy looking, but that's about it... This is the only bad TripAdvisor revue I've ever felt the need to write. Was treated EXTREMELY rudely by the host before even entering (and was hung up on when we tried to phone just before). The menu is beyond typical and boring (the same menu is available at any taverna across the whole country), and the food was hugely forgettable. Pricing was outrageous for such sub-par fare. A place only for those with the need to see and be seen there. IF Hillary Clinton DID eat there once (as they plaster all over their walls and entrance), she certainly didn't go back twice!!!

“Disappointment”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Once upon a time, it was the restaurant of Athens. They need a new chef! The decor is very pretty and the inner courtyard is delightful but the cuisine is mediocre and not inexpensive.

“Romantic”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Beautiful setting in a very old building in the heart of the Plaka. The food and service was great accompanied with amazing wine and complimentary ouzo shots. A bit pricey though so not for the budget traveler unless you want to make an exception for one night.

“Bad quality served in short time”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Came here with my best friends, both are living in Athens. Ordered from the "specialties" menu. The main course was served even we hadn't finish the starters. The quality of the starters was normal, the main course was really bad (moussaka and salmon). Service was unfriendly and obviously in a hurry. Generating a bad atmosphere in a nice location. In the end we were told that credit cards are not accepted (the excuse was that the internet was down). They could have said that in the beginning.
For sure I will not go there again.
