Amazing lamb and very good greek salad. The owner is a special person, and also the staff. In the evening they have live greek music.

So this restaurant was recommended by the girl that works at out hotel and I just have to say a couple of things. This is the type of restaurant that only if you live in Athens you know of. The food is very very very good. It's like going to the house of your Greek auntie. The lamb chops are... More

Called in here on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel, and are very we glad we did. The place is totally unpretentious, it's all about the food, the atmosphere and the service. We absolutely loved this restaurant so much so we've been twice and intend to go again on our last night. We cannot fault the food, although... More

Mr Ilias, the owner, never claimed to do anything else but great meat on the grill. And he certainly does it right! Last Saturday we went for late lunch with a reservation for 9 adults with healthy appetites. I have to say that it was my first time there during winter. I'm always choosing this restaurant because of the beautiful... More

We visited this taverna on the recommendation of friends who are regular visitors when in Athens. We were not disappointed. We chose the lamb chops which seem to the signature dish. They were delicious. It is a very traditional taverna frequented by Greeks so you know it will be good. Probably not a good choice if you are vegetarian!

This is an eternal taverna in Athens. It's been there for ever. Next to Thission station and across St Antony's church. It's the place to eat lamb chops in Athens. Rich in taste and aroma. Keep it simple: the chops a Greek salad and fava beans. Divine. Downed them with cold beer or home red wine. Unfailing. And Elias is... More

We went after a personal recommendation from our bouzouki player's luthier. The restaurant has two sites on the same road, separated by about a quarter mile. We walked away from town, straight by the first, where you dine in a garden, and ate at the second, where you dine on the street. The place looked like a quiet and slightly... More

We had a delicious dinner here! The waiters were very friendly and helpful, and the food was so cheap we were able to try just about everything! The lamb chops and tatziki were both out of this world! Dinner for 2 (mezze and then lamb chops with a beer each) came to 33 euros.

I have read great review but was a bit dessapointed. The meat was good but to cooked. I felt part of the greek as there were no tourists and mainly locals. The service was a bit long
