A very interesting restaurant that breaks away from conventional cuisines, yet maintains an ambiance that feels familiar and friendly. The overall philosophy of the restaurant is unique, the fusion of ingredients is extraordinary, and the level of consistency of the dishes served was impeccable during all three times I visited this place. I was also extremely pleased to find a menu that does not include traditional fish plates found elsewhere, but more sophisticated fish that do justice to the great variety found in Greece. More importantly, I was delighted to encounter really great service. Friendly, knowledgeable, and above all absolutely professional. It is evident that the popularity of this restaurant did not occur by chance, but is rather the deserved result of hard work, creativity and attention to detail.

First - reservations absolutely necessary and difficult to get at dinnertime. The cooking results from the chefs mixed background so it is Greek food with Japanese influence or Japanese food with Greek influence?? Either way - it worked beautifully. Everything we had was wonderful with interesting flavors and textures. Service was excellent and our server was extremely helpful. Wait for first course was a little long, but after that each dish was served promptly. We had a total of 5 dishes for 2 people are were more than sated. Yes it is pricey for Athens, but we felt it was well worth every Euro. Definitely the best meal we had in Greece.

Had dinner here last night, our second visit and we were pleased to find it as we remembered.

Fantastic, unusual food cobinations - perfect for sharing. We had squid in a fennel soup which made my wife go weak at the knees (i wish i had the same effect!). Followed by NFC, a Japanese fried chicken, and then beef fillet with burnt leeks to finish.

Great service and great wine too. A must visit!

Great restaurant, with very friendly staff. Fusion greek and japanese cuisine, which represents the chef’s origins. Cosy style. The focus is on comfort food, so do not expect a high-end cuisine or a fine-dinning experience. All dishes can be shared. The food was fresh, tasty and prepared to order. Overall, I had a great summer dinner in Athens. I would definitely recomend it!

We were lucky and early to get a table at Nolan's. What an experience, friendly and well informed staff. We shared four items between two of us and were satisfied. Try the Nolan cod burger and the zuchini and brinjal combination.
