Had lunch at the restaurant while on the way to the ancient agora. Ordered the grilled meat platter for two and was not disappointed. The meats were succulent and was full of flavour. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was wonderful. Had a great lunch there.

Having walked for nearly 90 minutes to find a restaurant that was recommended, only to find it was closed, I walked past this gem. Great service, music and wonderful, traditional food. The Bekri Mezze was superb, a definite new favourite. The kleftico was similarly excellent. The potatoes were so full of flavour it was a shame when I’d finished. George and Olga were superb hosts.
Thanks for a great meal, will definitely be returning on my next visit.

Yes, the food is excellent - and a far cry above what you find at most tourist restaurants - and reason enough to eat here. But the thing that stands out for my husband and me is the staff. We had so much fun at this restaurant. We stopped by for a glass of wine after a day at the Acropolis which turned into appetizers and then dinner. We sat at a table near the sidewalk so that we could see the passersby. The unexpected treat of it all was to get to know Giannis and George, the two charming hosts who invite people to check out the restaurant. Their warm-hearted, generous hospitality.....their overwhelmingly honest and genuine invitations to stop for a bite to eat and to check out the second story tables..... was fun to experience and gave us a deeper appreciation for the restaurant. These two men had such a great attitude and were really working hard to be sure that all visitors felt welcomed.

After nearly a month in Greece, this still stands out as one of our most fun evenings. Beyond the two hosts, our server was excellent, the cooks and other staff were also great. Everyone who works there seems to have a generousness of spirit that spills over to the guests. I wish I could give this restaurant more than just 5 stars. Please treat yourselves to a good time and a terrific meal and check them out! And you can't go wrong with the menu - the food is fresh and first-rate.

We went three co-workers for a light dinner. The food was excellent and the view from the top floor was fantastic. Above all we appreciated the staff, they all been very friendly and welcoming. It is a true Greek experience and an excellent one.
