Excellent authentic Greek food. Best food I've eaten in a long time. The location is good if you're checking out the Kallio area.

I have visited here a few times. The atmosphere, food, funny waiters and prices all together make this a good choose. Here you can feel like being in taverna in Greece. I recommend to pick different kind of starters as a main dish or vegetarian plate or fish with salad.

We had a dinner for 12 in Zorbas, and the reservation was made in advance. When reserving the table the owner asked whether we are hurry to the theater near by, but as we were not, they did not ask an order in advance. The restaurant is old, and has seen its best days long time ago. Still: the food... More

I visited the restaurant with my greek friend and we tried stifado and kleftiko. Very good quality, cooked very well, but actually, my friend as being a greek cook said, that one was lamb in tomato sause and the other was lamb in ladokola. Servise was good and the greek waiter from Kos was so kind and friendly. Thank you... More

I spend a nice name giving party once here, so for a sunday lunch we decided to head here. We tried some meat dishes and tzatsiki. 90% of the time, waitress was missing and it took very long before we got our food. No bill were presented at all, just a sum. Price for two was 64eur! For this price,... More

We selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, but unfortunately this one was one out of seven restaurant ratings that mislead us totally. 9 out of our 12 people in our group found the food tasteless. Especially the Psaria mix grill (seafood) was a bid disappointment. I do not remember tasting such a tasteless seafood portion for years. The meat... More

This place is the most authentic greek restaurant I have found in Finland so far. The staff is friendly and the food is best described as amazing. Take a trip to Mediterranean and try this place. Little hard to find and the entrance doesn't do it justice, but the interior is really cozy.

The food in this restaurant is good! But I find it very weird that we went to a Greek restaurant and they didn't have moussaka or stifado available just because "it's Tuesday" (although they were on the menu). And the waiter mentioned this only when we tried to order those portions. In my opinion, the most traditional foods should be... More

Very old and traditional Greek restaurant in Helsinki. Food is good and Ala Carte covers Greek areas very well. In my opinion it was a bit pricy but I was lucky. I did not pay the bill. Thanks to my Host. Would I go back with my own money ? I think I will make my own Stifado at home... More
