We were wandering to find a taxi and came across this restaurant; the server at the door was so nice we came back the next night. Amazing wine and fantastic food we had a wonderful evening. The service was also perfect and a great price.

The free bread they give you is pretty good, the rest of the meal was just average.. not bad, just not anything special. The best dish we tried was the ravioli

with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

We do serve halal meat but mainly on demand. It is imported from France and we do not have everyday. We need one day notice.
