“YUM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

This is restaurant is a gem. My wife and I have been a few times over the best few years. Every time we're in Athens, we try to fit dinner here into our itinerary. If you like Mediterranean food, this place offers some good options at reasonable prices. They also have a fairly extensive (and reasonably priced) wine menu. We can't wait to return!

“What a delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful meal with family and friends. The baba ghanoush is the best I've ever had! Predominantly veggie, but you'll never miss the meat. The dolmas delicious, Hilarie's Salad excellent and chicken kabobs are wonderful! Decent wines too. Lamb looked great too! So I guess they have plenty of meat;-)

“Big Menu, Colorful Decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

I came her for a friendly business dinner and the 4 of us were put in a private alcove table, after we requested a quiet table. The menu is large and diverse so there was something for everyone. A friend told us about this place, and said we just *had* to order the spinach artichoke dip. It was heavenly! I was able to order a dish with a vegetarian protein that was grilled, which made me very happy. The serving was large with several different items on the plate. Their specialty salad was yummy too. It was a little bit of a challenge to navigate around the detour to get into this part of town, but once we got there we found a parking spot on the street and had a fantastic meal! The beautiful textile and garment decorations throughout made it extra special.

“Now we're talking!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

This quiet, mediterranean restaurant is a must visit in Athens. Pass on the other "popular" places, and head here! Great food, great service. Can't ask for more - and all with a local flavor you will love.
