“Amazing View of Mikrolimano”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a beautifully located resto/bar that is elevated on the water and overlooks mikrolimano bay and surrounding houses in the area. You're dinning with beautiful yachts nearby, lovely nautical decor, sea shells, anchors, nets, etc. The crowd is relatively young at night, (mid 20's - 30's) good music, food, the specialty coffees are excellent, as well as the the freshly squeezed juices. (fusikos ximos, essentially a smoothie of a variety of blended fruits, (pineapple, orange, banana, pear, peach, black cherry, apple etc) and you could tell everything was fresh, because it tasted amazing! I could have stayed there admiring the view of the marina for hours. Staff is very friendly and the service was excellent. A must go! Love it!

“Excellent view, not so much of a restaurant ”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

In this area, there aren't a lot of reviews on TA. If it's a high rank place, reviews are less than 40. Therefore, we headed to the highest number of reviews.

The view is spectacular. But the menu items were extremely disappointing. We were hungry and decided to enjoy the view with a few drinks, then head to a different place to eat.

Disappointed. Should be classified under bar/cafe section. Not restaurant.

For food, I rate it poor.
For drinks and chilling, I rate it excellent.

“Very good food in lovely location”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Have been several times on the 1st floor (coffee and drinks) and also to the restaurant downstairs. The view from the 1st floor is hard to beat, probably one of the best places in Athens to enjoy a good chat with friends whilst sipping a drink amd looking out over the Aegean sea or over Mikrolimano on the other side. The restaurant downstairs is looking directly over the small yacht harbour and especially at night this creates an excellent athmosphere. Food is good to excellent and the guys in the kitchen know their profession. A bit priecy, but hey - it's Mikrolimano AND it's good!

“Just for the view..”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

I have been only to the cafe, not the restaurant. But...Expensive. Service experience bad or slow and not friendly to be precise. The only reason to go is the outstanding view! From one side Mikrolimano's houses remind you of Italy as they are build on the hill above the marina. From the other side you have a great view of Athens that makes the city look beautiful like a painting. And from the other side you have the sea, the rocks emerging from the sea and nice sunrise.
