I really love greek food and this place has genuine greek food. The music, waitresses, chef, decoration all is very greek. So if that is what you are looking for - you got it. Minus side is the price. I ordered vegetarian plate with 20 euros or so but did not get a lot. What I got tasted excellent and... More

Food were good, but not very good. Service were a bit impolite. We got kind of feeling that we were disturbing them... Place was busy, but still we we willing to have our lunch without hurry. Next time another place :)

This restaurant has a nice location, it is located in Kamppi shopping center (close to the railway station), it is on the first floor (not the ground floor). I tried souvlaki, it was good. It was my first time when I ate souvlaki so I don't have anything to compare to, but I really liked it and the portion was... More

Tasty Greek flavours with big portions. It seems expensive at the first glance but if you compare the portions with other restaurants in the city I would say it is not. It is at the center of the city and has a terrace overlooking the square of Kemppi. Good music and nice service. I would go again. I was allowed... More

Tasty creek food in the big mall called Kamppi. Portions are tasty and after a starter and maincourse you will leave tummy full. Possible to sit outside as well.

A good choice for lovers of south European food. The taste brings the Mediterranean breeze to the tip of your tongue. Due to the location (heart of Helsinki) it is a bit expensive. I will return.

Had a late lunch at 2 pm and the lunch menu was still available. Grilled meat was tasty and just right amount of meat and everything. Only the side dish, rice with the red peppers, was bit tasteless. But the fried vegetables and beef was excellent! And price was just 11 euros! Also the service was polite and friendly. I... More

I had swordfish here last night. It was fresh and tasty and came on spinach. A small Greek salad came with it and it was good. I also had a piece of bread. I sat inside with fresh air coming in. It was just what I was looking for. A nice meal in a good setting. Service was friendly too.

A convenient place to eat located at a major transport terminal. I had veal moussaka for an evening meal, which came with a lone and desultory piece of bread, no butter or anything and feeling less than oven fresh. The veal moussaka was billed as traditional - not sure about that and certainly serving it straight from a microwave oven... More
