The gracious owner told us to not order a thing. We were the only patrons in the place. That should have been a tip off. We were served 7 courses of delicious food, some of which I did not recognize. I broke the first rule...More

This is a classic Greek restaurant, like those you'll find anywhere in Greece - you walk in and the owner (a truly kind man) serves you whatever delicious things he's concocted that day based on what ingredients are fresh and good that day. There is...More

Dinner with friends. The restaurant needs surely some heavy maintenance, but on food quality, nothing to say. It was nice and tasty, the owner very kind and attentive with us, a nice evening.

Excellent, scratch-made Greek food! The Greek owner will likely serve you himself. Apparently this restaurant was full-up from morning to night before the coup, but now you will likely find you are the only customer there. Worth the price, even if it is a little...More
