The restaurant is well located and the service is really quick. A bit disappointed by the hard cheese and the feta too hard, chewy and salty. Moreover, the taste of the eggplant appetiser was a bit hidden by the one of the olives. The "Dream" mushrooms and the spicy beef-tomatoes were correct but didn't blow our months.

This place has very nice food that’s different than your typical tourist place in Athens. Which after a while of being offered the same offerings is nice. Menu is very affordable. Outdoor seating is nice. Maybe the service was a little slow, oh well, it’s just how it is.

The reason why I think it’s average may be because I think I got the wrong plate. I ordered a mixed platter than was pretty average. The feta cheese and Oliver was amazing. The house red wine was horrible, by far the worse part of my experience. However, what people around me had looked pretty good. I may have made the wrong choice.

What a delight to come in to this restaurant and the food starts rolling out... Nice breadsticks and tzatzaki, delicious green salad (the use orange citrus in the dressing?), grape leaves, zucchini fritters, cheese pie, spinach pie, mushrooms, stewed beef, meatballs in a richly tasty tomato sauce and pane cotta with cherry sauce for dessert. Great helpful service and a delightful tasty lunch!

MUST GO!!!! We use trip advisor pretty much exclusively unless we can find locals’ recommendations with no ties to other restaurants and where the locals go.

Best meal in Athens. Small plates, ordered six : stuffed grapes leaves, food for drunks, sardines, meatballs In Sauce, fried cheese, zucchini fritters. ALL so excellent!!! The desserts were awesome! We had two; the dark chocolate with crushed biscuits, pistachios and another one that we couldn’t understand the name but it’s served at Greek weddings. Two light fluffy pastry with honey and ice cream. It was divine! I would come here every night! Don’t let the dark streets and graffiti scare you. It emerges as a gem from the dark!
