Not that it's expensive, but the really small dishes were a little overpriced, and they tasted rather average, some of them a little better, some others a little worse. The decoration is ok.

Our family went here on our first night in Athens after a recommendation and were very happy with the whole experience. Nice Greek music and decor, fantastic food and really good service. Highly recommended.

Very good and tasty food. not very expensive place to visit and whatever you eat will worth its cost. recommended for someone who wants to go and have a glass of greek wine with few mezes.

We were 3 couples who went to this restaurant as it was recommended to us by a local person. We had mostly starter dishes, too many to recall them all, and rice pilaf (chicken risotto). Everything was very flavourful and the quantities were more than enough. It was washed down with a craft beer (Nissos). The total for all 6... More

We had lunch at Mpakalogatos (pronounced BakalΟgatos) two weeks ago and went away delighted. We were three couples and had a bit of everything. I loved the Ladovrochi salad: with crushed, crunchy but oh-so-light koulouri-rusks from the island of Kassos, drizzled with olive oil, cottage cheese and finely chopped tomatoes. I had to add some salt to the makarounes (Kassos... More

Our group of 5 was warmly welcomed into this lovely spot. We ordered a variety of items (goat stew, pork tenderloin, pasta with caramelized onions, 2 risotto dishes, Greek salad, tzatziki) and followed some of the chefs suggestions (fried zucchini, grilled cheese). Everything was fresh and delicious, service was excellent, and we had a relaxing and fun evening. Very good... More

We started with a few typical greek starters, after that lovely chicken risotto, shrimp spagetti (of which we both took te rest in a doggy bag and ate with 3 persons the next day, mmm) and marvellous prok stew in a red wine sauce. Good wine and tasty desert to share. All together for €100 (4 persons). Loved it!

Our group of 7 were warmly welcomed by the manager of this authentic Greek eatery. Aesthetics were traditional; food... Incredible. We had been advised to ask The manager, George, to 'bring us food to fill us' and he certainly provided this. We enjoyed around 10 shareable portions of salad, meats, fried vegetables and other traditional Greek dishes which were served... More

Great menu for food and drinks, and quality and portions are consistent. I would say the prices are average (reasonable compared to other places), and the portions are average to large. On all my visits, everything has been cooked to order, and the quality of the food served has been consistent. Would definitely recommend it at least once.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
