We’ve had the most amazing time in Athens. But alas tonight we decided on this place, totally based on location. Oh how I wish I’d reviewed it here first. Really really bad.

On arrival, bottled water was poured... we did not ask for this, nor were we given the option, we did not drink it. Then bread arrived with olive dip, again not asked for but we did eat this. We ordered the variety of tastes as our starter.... mediocre at best dry dry dry.

We then had the ‘traditional’ dishes of moussaka and pastitsio. The moussaka was edible, the pastitsio barely. Both terribly dry.

Our waiter then arrived to clear the table, he asked how everything was. We said, although tasty, terribly dry. No real response. The bill arrived, I questioned both the water and the bread, he agreed to take the water off the bill.... oh thanks!!!

We then had to go inside to pay the bill....and our card was taken out of sight, then we were told our card was not working and we would need to pay cash. Funnily enough the card was working at every other location on this trip. By now tensions were rising. We paid cash. Told them we knew they were taking the ‘piss’ and left ......so frustrating.

Do not eat here , so many amazing options and we are mad at ourselves for being sucked in

This was my first restaurant in Greece and I loved it. After trying out several others during a week stay, this was still one of my top favorites.

Good food and friends go together so well. We enjoyed our dining experience and the food at this local joint in the Plaka district.

NB: Eris and Daphne’s are the same restaurant.
When we arrived we liked the look of the menu. It is the most expensive restaurant we visited though- overall there are many better places with more reasonable prices within minutes that have tremendously better hospitality. Would not recommend.
1. We were not at all impressed when we had a nice, pricey €2.50 mineral water poured without asking. Everywhere else we went asked and then gave us tap as requested. When we queried, the waiter who had spoken English fine, suddenly had no idea what tap water was, said he’d check and never came back.
2. Cover charge for bread at €1 a head. Fine, but the only restaurant we went to that did this again.
3. Food itself was good. Can’t complain about that. Crap with Orzo was lovely.
4. The bill was brought out whilst we were eating. We would’ve stayed for more wine and dessert but I guess they didn’t want the custom. Again, every other place we went to waited for us to ask.
5. Overall the worst service and not at all becoming of traditional Greek hospitality. Bizarre how it’s two restaurants, interestingly with differing review scores. Would recommend further down toward the street near acropolis museum for some amazing restaurants.

The worst food I’ve had in Greece in 10 years. Staff couldn’t care less, service is mediocre and food is overpriced and badly cooked. Many better places. Avoid
