My wife and I were walking from our hotel in Plaka toward Monastiraki Square, looking for a taverna with live music. Along the way we "stumbled" onto this great place. We heard the music before we saw the taverna - a bouzouki and guitar duo. We quickly got a table in the courtyard and settled in. We split a bottle of Greek wine - our first & were surprised to find it very good. Our food was excellent. My wife had an entree size of grilled vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes) and I had the braised lamb with potatoes in lemon sauce. The music was a lot of fun - mostly traditional folk music, but with some cool interpretations ot Simon & Garfunkel and others.

This is a great place & I highly recommend it!

Was looking for a place to go after having dinner in the Plaka district. Found this place online and chose this venue for the live music. We sat in their outer seating area relatively close to the music. We have a great time! Our desert was very good. The entertainment was the best. They have live music every night. We could have stayed for hours but was getting late. Next time we will come for dinner and the live show.

Thank Jason J A

We were recommended this place by our taxi driver but as we were walking around he heard the live music and would have been drawn here nonetheless! The host found us a table despite not having a reservation and we were simply delighted by the service and more importantly the food. Best Greek food we’ve had so far. Recommend the fried feta with honey, eggplant rolls! The apps are large and great flavor. Lamb and chicken soulvaki were good too.

Eating alone at night can often be a bit hit and miss in terms of welcome and comfort... this place is a hit. Ate here alone on my first night in Athens after reading some reviews. I wasn't hidden away on the worst table (as sometimes happens) or rushed out the door to free up the table (as often happens). The waiter was very friendly and gave me confidence to use my bad holiday Greek. The music was a great distraction and created a really nice atmosphere. The wine and food were good too but for me, the feel of the place is more important and this place had me smiling the whole time. A great introduction to Athens.
