The best place on earth for chocolate lovers. They serve huge chocolate portions with fruits, biscuits and different types of nuts. I had the privilege once to be served there chocolate with spicy chicken wings. You can't imagine how tasty can be. Wish they would have it in the menu.

It has the best chocolate in the world! If you love chocolate then this is the place you should go. The prices are a bit up and the waiters could be more friendly.

Needless to say this is a must for chocolate lovers! Prices are high and the service is too professional to the point of indifference! The business seems to have expanded to much which ruins a bit the old atmoshpere, but it a great place to drink your chocolate nonetheless!

We went by when we saw this cafeteria -beer pub and we ordered some beers and food. A long list and variety of beers that is really impressive for the size of the this city! We ate a beer variety that was quite tasteless with only exception the potatoes. A big disappointment was the fact that they do not take... More

The fondue and generally chocolate is what we come here for.They are really good but the prices on everything are very high. Not suggested for coffee or anything else for that matter. On the plus side they do bring you a lot of cookies but they keep insisting that you keep the "lid" closed every time you eat one--are they... More

Although behind the curve on the craft beer scene, this place serves up some nice Greek crafts. I had an IPA that was VERY nice, 8th Day. The staff was very helpful in picking out beers. We stopped in just for one beer, but the good drinks, complimentary snacks, and the comfy outdoor seating kept us there all night.

Finally a place in Greece with a decent beer list. I didn't count, but they probably had over 100 beers listed, so there's lots of options and the waiters are happy to give recommendations. We ordered 'toast' as a snack and they gave us a free plate of sausage and fries (similar to currywurst).

Fantastic selection of desserts. I wanted a fondue but since I was travelling alone the staff suggested this was not a good idea because they are massive, easily enough for several people. So, I had ice-cream in melted chocolate instead - fantastic! Do go here if you love chocolate, especially if you have more than one person in the group.
