Description: Picture yourself enjoying a traditional Greek meal, with a small vilage atmosphere, with lush greennery overhead, walls covered with rustc farrmer's toolsand handmade pottery throughou.. This is Rustico!The taverna is situated on the corner of Hippodamou and Sokratous street a junction as the streets were created on the hippodamio system (a city were the streets are in blocks). The area is elevated and there were no archeological findings when excavations were performed thus assuming that a small forest existed which is a characteristic of elevated areas of that time.In the first christianic and Byzantine period after continuous destructions of the ancient town by the Persian, Goths and the Arabs and the town’s forced shrinkage into the Byzantine city the forest park which was destroyed by the fires was now open fields which was left as such for defense purposes since the distance was not far from the existing Byzantine defense wall

Rustico reasturant was a place that was worth a try but probably not somewhere to go more than once - it was a one shot wonder.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

We were looking forward to a meal here but when we got it we were disappointed. Tinned veg and very basic food. Certainly not the fantastic traditional meal we expected. For what we paid we got a much better meal for cheaper else where. Over priced

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

we went in two times one to buy food for the kids, and the second time for drinks. The staff where really welcoming, we did dent order drinks with the kid food, but the staff gave them both a glass of ice cold water! Which we thought was really kid of them.
All in all a really nice visit :)

“nice service, average food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

The welcome and the service was very fast, kind. The prices are overrated, thatswhy i choosed the cheapest option that was a mousakka for 6.5 €. The food was hot and nice presented, but soo far not thst nice that was last time in Symposium. They give me a complimantary glass of iced water, that was really kind, if we see the 0.5 l mineralwater costs 2 euro here. I was satisfied.
