Description: The restaurant " Oineas " ,established in 1999, embodies all the tradition and the air of another bygone era described as " the good old days " of the historical city of Athens. Placed at the neighborhood of Psyrri our restaurant aims to maintain the memories, that all we, the Greeks, had from our childhood . Good food is our main concern, with our menu consisting of traditional Greek recipes prepared in a modern and fresh way combining small gourmet touches . The desserts , are hand-made, prepared daily by the Mother of the owner, Christina Korda . The famous "ravani", a traditional greek type of cake soaked in syrup is served with kaimaki ice cream , leaving a last sweet taste to accompany you on the way home . The name "Oineas", is the name of an ancient greek king, who is supposed to be taught the culture and mystical values of life by the god Dionysos himself. It was chosen as the name of our restaurant because of our love for good wine , which flows in abundance as we have our own homemade House Wine both red and white. You should also, try the traditional greek drinks Ouzo, and Tsipouro, while you will be enjoying our unique tidbits, or else, the tradition greek "mezedes, made from fresh ingredients. The store has been decorated by the collection of antiques that Mr Angelos has being collecting for over than 40 years ,consisting of old advertisements , memorabilia , products of the era of the old Athens of the 50's, 60's and the 70's and all these kind of small objects are displayed throughout the store . It really is a small museum, and the antiques are unique and collected with great difficulty and fumbling . It is above all, a family business , a restaurant that is basically our home, the ornament and the result of chronic work, and dedication. We used all our good taste , our love of good company and established this restaurant for the pleasure it gives to us, having beautiful people enjoying their meal and drink, with good company at our place. We hope that we will see you soon!

I loved the decoration in the restaurant. I can’t say the same about food. We ordered risotto which was not well prepared and without any flavours. The dessert was sweet and it felt like the sauce was bought in the shop. We payed quite a lot but wasn’t satisfied at all.

Our server, possibly the owner was very welcoming. We had the Moussaka and the chicken souvlaki. Also the fried cream cheese appetizer. All of the dishes were excellent. Would definitely go back. Decor is very unique and eclectic.
