This time the problem was the food. The staring dishes were blunt (asparagus with mousline, french onion soup), the main dishes much below usual and the creme brule really poor. Maybe a different chef? Maybe different suppliers? Service was ok, though I would say rather slow. Remaining with a bitter impression that the restaurant values only specific clients.

We went for official dinner and had, soup, cafe de Paris beef fillet a very nice salad and the best red wine. it was fabulous, quiet and very international. This is a charming, excellent small gourmet restaurant with personalized service of the best quality and great location, only difficult to walk there. Best clientele. This is one of the best...

I had lunch here on a delightfully sunny Sunday afternoon and it was a "just right" lengthy Sunday Summer lunch with excellent staff who were professional, quietly attentive and enthusiastic about the food. The atmosphere in the tree shaded courtyard is marvellous and the crisp white tablecloths, silver service and attentive service all combined to make this an indeal place... More

I had dinner with a friend at this nice restaurant. Very professional staff, generous portions, good dish but not haute-cuisine . Rather expensive for what we had but then again I always forget to add the service and the 24 % tax. Although the dinner in the beautiful garden was a plus, I would prefer trying other restaurants.

Nice garden in the center of Athens. A very good idea for a hot night out. Good quality original French cuisine. The environment however is rather old fashioned, such were the waiters as wrll

It is one of the most “classy” restaurants in Athens with a long history and a faithful clientele. Indeed the interior ambience has style (silver candelabras on the crispy linen tablecloths) and the service is attentive and helpful. However the meals are disappointing. What is supposed to be genuine French cuisine turns out to be a poor imitation. Serving (industrially... More

When entering, the smell of the old carpets declares the style; silverware on the tables tries to spell posh. Just, that it is not working as supposed: the escargôt was ok. The asparagus were boiled (!) and tasteless even with the sauce, the steak tartare was not "the best in Athens" as advertised by others (meat was likely blendered) but... More

This is the place for aristocrats to eat. Politicians, entrepreneurs and stars eat here. The food is nice but it is quite expensive.

I remember when we used to eat in this restaurant and they had great portions and low price. For e.g in the past we've been ordering frog legs which were pretty big in butter and garlic, and was much cheaper. Now the same dish consists of a tiny portion, tiny frog legs soaked in oil ( as i reckon) in... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Kolonaki / Lykavittos
By far the ritziest neighbourhood in town, Kolonaki is home to most of the chic boutiques and designer label stores. Here, the wealthy say no to austerity by dressing in their finest and spending hours in the trendy cafés around Kolonaki Square, sipping the most expensive coffee in Europe. The area also contains a couple of notable museums and cultural institutions, which add to the air of nobility. The leafy upper reaches of Kolonaki transition into Lykavittos Hill, the highest point in central Athens. Climb the paths through its wooded slopes to the tiny chapel at the top, from where you are rewarded with stunning views across the Acropolis to the sea and even the mountains of the Peloponnese on a clear day. The wooden amphitheater up here hosts regular concerts during the summer.
