“Above and beyond -- Excellent service, delicious food!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

After a very pleasant dinner with fresh ingredients and beautiful live music at Artemis a few nights prior, we decided to order takeout to our hotel just down the street. We called in to see if delivery was an option, and as it turns out - Artemis is a dine-in only restaurant! However, the owner was very accommodating and personally delivered a meal (perfectly hot souvlaki with fresh, delicious salads) to us HIMSELF! Though we were pleasantly surprised, I must admit this excellent service is consistent with our experience a few nights ago. Will come back here at least once before our vacation is over! 5 stars!

“Overrated”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I don't know how this restaurant got such high ratings. We found it the most mediocre of all the places we ate in Athens over a five-day trip. While the fish (Silver Snapper) was fresh, its preparation was ordinary. The Greek salad had fairly tasteless tomatoes, ditto the feta on top. Wine and ouzo were harsh tasting, surprising in this country where both are usually so good. Service was the high point; servers were skilled at deboning fish and keeping tabs on the table. Many, many better places are easy to find in Athens!

We respect your review either negative. We are sorry that you were not pleased from the tomatoes and the feta cheese in your salad . Please note that same tomatoes had one night before 80 Greek people invited into a baptism .(previous review) They really enjoyed it !!!
As regards the wine , that was harsh tasting , you couldn’t accepted from the beginning while the waiter gave you to taste . I would also like to let you know that ouzo is never harsh tasting and it’s an insult to the manufacturer (Greek brand name) . It would be better telling us all these while you were (?) in our restaurant .
Thank you.
P.S: please note that customer complaints concern us and make us better. !!

“Delicious and friendly”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Authentic Greek food (my partner is from Greece). We had a wonderful meal that began with grilled octopus & saganaki cheese (flambé). We then had the pork (spicy!), & dessert. Everyone was very nice and the kind owner came and talked to us a few times. I'm sure we will be back there before we leave Greece.
