A typical Greek taverna in the outskirts of Athens turned to a destination for meat lovers!! Average ambience (smoky inside in winter) but far better in the spring and summer with outside seating. Simple menu , but meat cooked to perfection with little frills and whistles. The french fries are " to kill for ". Nice range of desserts !

This restaurant is simple with good ambiance and excellent service. It is known for its cuts, mainly beef cuts and really worth the visit. T

For meat lovers only, who don't care about decoration, cuttlery and the rest... This place serves the best non-premium (i.e. not wagyu, black-angus, kobe...etc) meat I've ever had!! I often think to my self, how would these guys work on a piece of premium beef, when they reach excellence with common beef and the most popular cuts (t-bone and ribeye)?... More

Once more there and no surprises. The best steak in Athens (for years),so tasty though raw material is Greek. Same gloomy environment inside(need to fix it guys)though garden is better. Descent wine and service,boring desserts. Excellent value for money(30 euros per person and you eat a lot). Again:the best steak in Athens.

Owners are great people and very kind hosts. The food is addictive. Start with a greek salad and wild greens. Continue with a carpaccio (it's not in the menu, so ask the waiter) to taste the great quality of meat that they serve. And then it's the kidneys!!! Grilled to perfection and caramelized in a way that takes you to... More

If you are thinking of enjoying some really good meat around Athens this is a place for it. Try to visit in summer and enjoy the nice yard. Ask for lamp chops, kiloto and rib eye. All deli.

We were really skeptical after reading some bad reviews in here. But it was a nice chance to pay a visit under a discount offer which lasted about a week, for numerous restaurants in Athens. Kritikos had a fixed menu with a starter, a salad, a main dish and a sweet, for 20 euros. We had spinach pie and tyrokafteri... More
