Ok old fashioned restaurant. Good food selection although some choices were unavailable. Food quality was average. Service was average at best. Location quite good. Pricing ok for the touristy Plaka area. Little to get excited about, but perfectly acceptable.

Happy to find a good choice of traditional greek dishes well made and tasty, a change from much tourist fare. The fish kebab was especially delicious.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a

traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
