Industrial ambiance, good service that be a bit slow on rush hours. Tasty meatballs, good red wine and nice music. This restaurant is very close to Monastiraki square.

Went there with a friend and sat at the bar to eat something....from the bar you can see everything in the kitchen...so that brings us tothe chef that tasted something by dipping his bear finger.in the pot instead of using a spoon....BIG NO NO.....that is when we got up and left before ordering...

Music is good, location is great, but the food is atrocious. When we raised this with the waiter he didn't care. The owner came over & told us that even if the food was inedible it was our fault because we ordered it! Soo many better options close by, do not waste your time & money here.

In a cool area in Athens. Loved visiting some of the neighbouring bars but this place was such a disappointment. The food was awful. Do not try the zucchini meatballs, they are deep fried over cooked oily pieces of something that don't resemble a vegetable. The waiter was lazy and took 3 asks to get the bill. When we told him the food was awful & we didn't eat all the zucchini slop meatballs he shrugged and did not care. Don't go here. Owner is rude too. Expensive too. Neighbouring bars are SO much better and yum snacks and drinks.

The vibe of the place is quite enticing, however I've found the food to be somewhat mediocre on all occasions I've been there. It's not bad, but it's unfortunate the name suggests great meatballs, as they slightly disappoint. Other than that, it's a great place for either drinks or coffee and loads of people-watching.
