This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. We went a few time during our stay. Greek salad, bread, calamari, sea bream, and souvlaki...all were delicious. The service was good as well.

We wanted to have Greek dinner - his place was recommended by locals. Really good vegetarian starters - we shared 6 plates, delicious combination and very reasonable prices.

We ate here on our first night in Athens. It's a cheap 'n' cheerful taverna, a nice stroll away from the main tourist area.

I read the positive and negative reviews about this place and was surprised to see such a difference of opinion. Now I've been there, I can see both sides of the picture. Simple food, quite an extensive menu, but not everything is "on", when you go. Good spirits roasted meats, what looked like a really good gyro sandwich. Drinkable house... More

Was recommended by a local and lived up to its promise. Good authentic food, decent portions and very modest prices. The starters beat mains and think the best way is to eat like tapas- a series of dishes from the starters supplemented with Kalamaki skewers. Don't miss the fried zucchini. If you are an Indian vegetarian- peas are like aloo... More

This was recommended to us by a local - with emphasis on us wanting "real Greek food, like Momma would make". We were not disappointed. Service was good, food was plentiful, good and price was unbeatable, ( even for drinks).
