    A truly lovely dinner experience… felt homey and elegant, while being surrounded by different bits & eclectic lighting. The food… Shrimp popped & lamb was falling off the bone tender. The white fish spread was everything one would expect in Greece. Add to your Athens list!!!!

    Our meal was so good that I went to the kitchen and thanked the chef personally. After two weeks in various parts of Greece, my wife and I agreed that this was the best meal we had in Greece. We loved the ambience!

    We were seated promptly but they did not bring water or bread until after we ordered. Ordered drinks & it was quite awhile (~15 mins) until waiter returned to take our order. The restaurant is very small (5 bar seats & 7 tables) & there were 2 waiters but it was very disjointed service. The food was good but only mediocre & the wine list was pretty pathetic. Asked for our check & it took another 15 mins to get it so we ended up paying cash as I can’t imagine how long it would take to use a CC!🙄 I understand it can be difficult to understand us as we have very different accents so we always say what we are ordering BUT ALSO point at it on the menu. Despite that, they still brought lamb kabob when we ordered lamb chops. €90 + tip for 2 older female diners.

    Okayest food in Athens. Not terrible, but not great. Just ok. The staff seemed inexperienced, we had to refill our own wine glasses multiple times. Not a terrible thing, just ok.

    Great food and experience of the local flavour. The place seemed very quiet when we visited and didn’t get the reason why the place was in that way, but it is a great meal. We were visiting from out of town.

    Went here for our last night in Athens and could not have been happier about our choice. The cozy space exudes romance and charm. Our server also doubled as mixologist, whipping up a few amazing cocktails. The food was amazing, especially the octopus appetizer. Would absolutely come here again next time we are in Athens.

    You must eat here!!! This was the best restaurant we ate at in Athens. The staff and chef were friendly and the food was delicious (so was the wine). We loved the variety of spreads as an appetizer, which had generous portions. The beet and goat cheese appetizer was so delicious. We loved short ribs and lamb dished as well. Do not miss this restaurant.

    This was a lovely restaurant serving authentic Greek food. We shared a mixed dips starter, there were about 6 different dips in generous quantities - my favorites were the aubergine one and the taramasalata which tasted so much better than anything you'll buy from a supermarket. I then had the Black Pig 'Tomahawk' with chips, salad and a mushroom sauce. It was fantastic but far too much for me to eat! the mushroom sauce was amazing with a generous flavor of truffle. Value for money was very good particularly given the quantity of food.

    ¡Muy sobresaliente! Estuve en la ciudad muy rápido por un viaje de negocios y vi este lugar en internet cerca del lugar de mi cita, así que reservé para probar. Superó mis expectativas. Al entrar descubres un lugar decorado de forma bella y relativamente austera pero con muy buen gusto. Un plus es que las mesas y algunos muebles están decorados con flores naturales. El mobiliario y la vajilla también son de notoria calidad y diseño. Habíamos pocos comensales y me atendió desde la llegada a mi partida la misma persona, que siempre se mostró alegre y servicial. Pero por encima de todo: la comida. Pedí una copa de vino blanco con la entrada y una copa de vino tinto con el plato principal. De entrada pedí el tradicional Taztziki y de plato fuerte una costilla cocida lentamente en horno con gnocchis. Todo increíblemente delicioso. Lo disfruté mucho y los vinos fueron excelentes para acompañar.
