Easter Sunday today and we booked to this restaurant for the first time. My expectations were low because restaurants of this type are normaly packed on Easter and my experiences from the past are rather bad. Elaionas was a surprise - juicy kokoretsi and a divine roasted lamb you could cut with a spoon! Accompanied by a copious lettuce salad... More

It's huge and lacks character. On the other hand they serve simple old fashioned Greek dishes. Portions are huge. Prices are very low for the quality of food served. If you are in the area try it.

I was recommended this place by a local B&B proprietor. Although not very busy (a quiet Friday night in the suburbs) I was still made to feel very welcome. The menu was full of solid, reasonably priced (for Athens) Greek standards. I ordered a cabbage/carrot salad, courgette fritters and the lamb chops (pythakia) plus water & red wine. I had... More

You'd like your last meal on vacation to be a good one. We weren't expecting fine dining just good solid regional cooking. The fava was really good and we were glad to have that one last time as not all restaurants serve it and we can't get it at home. The lamb chops were mostly fat with only one good... More

We had dinner here on three consecutive evenings and enjoyed every mouthful! The lamb though must be the highlight, freshly grilled and mouthwateringly delicious, we will definitely be back on our next visit.

A great place to eat! Its mostly frequented by Greeks and their family as its away from the usual tourist areas. Lovely to see an extended Greek family fill a table up as they arrive in stages for a meal. We ate there most nights for a week and ended up making good friends with the owner, his family and...

We ate here our last night of our 3 week vacation in Greece and I must honestly say it was one of the BEST meals we had while traveling throughout Greece. Our family of 5 enjoys eating our meals 'family' style and ordering several appetizers and one or two main dishes and everything we ordered was delicious. The pork kebabs... More

Our hosts at the nearby B&B suggested this place for nice dinner. She correctly cautioned us that the portions were quite generous. The waiter was extremely helpful and delivered some wonderful selections and wine. We needed that short walk back to the B&B to help settle the meal. Service is quick and friendly. Cash only.
