This is a restaurant mainly for tourists. If you want to taste authentic Greek cuisine then you should try something else. Even more disappointed that olive oil comes at an extra charge!

I was sent here by Theo who owns The Loom in the Plaka. He claims his family owns the place so naturally he will promote it. It had indoor and outdoor seating. The decor was charming and the service was attentive but, not overbearing. I had lamb in a pot and it was very good. The baklava was very good. The restaurant is very close to the Plaka/Monstraki border. The portions are very generous and the house wine is very good. The menu is very large and has vegetarian options. The cuisine is definitely Greek here.

I was sent to Ydria by Theo at The Loom in the Plaka (a wonderful experience in itself). It's run by his family so naturally he plugged it, however, I was pleased I went. I had the chicken Souvlaki with lemon potatoes and was not disappointed. The chicken was beautifully grilled and tasty and the potatoes were not overwhelmingly lemon flavoured, which I was worried about. The peppers could probably have done with a little more grilling but as I'm not a huge fan of them anyway, I wasn't overly concerned.

I followed that lovely dinner with an 'on the house' Baklava (courtesy of Theo at The Loom). The portion was incredibly generous and while I was getting decidedly full, there was no way I could leave it; it was without doubt one of the best Baklava's I have tasted.

Thank you to Theo for the recommendation but thank you to the staff for the wonderful meal and incredible Baklava. I would definitely eat there again.

The Greek mixed meat was excellent, but the moussaka was so so, probably been sitting around for too long . The cucumber salad was a cucumber sliced up and a few slices of tomatoes, which we did not mind, though the presentation left much to be desired. The live music was nice. Service was ok.
