We visited last week the Arxaion Gefsis based in Psyrri Athens. Our first impression when we entered the restaurant was that of a very "enemy" environment. Thyoung man who came to host us ascend whether we had made a reservation. Hen we said no he told with an arrogant behaviour that we should have done so, please note that the... More

The restaurant should be top notch for what it represents. It was not. The courtyard is just OK, the seats really uncomfortable, dishes just average taste, portions small and god how overpriced! Staff unprofessional, students instead and at the end no credit cards accepted, something I could be well informed about when booking the table but of course I was... More

I had the lamb and my wife had the chicken. We were told that the meal didn't come with potatoes or rice. Also that the meals are not made with anything imported or grown after the time of Christ. So we didn't know to expect. However we really enjoyed what we had, very subtle flavours and very nice. The wine... More

My husband and I ate here during our honeymoon back in May 2005 (not 2013, but TripAdvisor doesn't give me the option to indicate that date). I have never forgotten the experience. Now that I am starting to plan a return to Athens, I definitely want to go again!

Interesting menu, friendly service, good food, reasonable choice for vegetarians. Visiting cats became annoying.

If you are a fan of history and ancient Greece you should definitely go to this restaurant once. The food is good, nothing spectacular, but this is not the point. The point is to have the experience of what ancient greek cuisine tasted like as all the recipes are ancient greek recipes. The decoration follow the same ancient greek theme,... More

This is not your average theme restaurant, where the gimicks get you in and the food leaves you unsatisfied. The food here is absolutely wonderful. My cousin, who lives in Athens, took us to Arxaion Gevseis (Ancient tastes) after she had left loving it once before. I'm so happy we went and it is an absolute must, as you won't... More

A restaurant that is inspired by ancient Greek recipies (They even list the passage from which they based it on). The food is delicious and the atmosphere superb: music with only flute and lyre was played at the speakers and the waiters/waitresses wear ancient-looking clothes. Mind that there is no fork (just like ancient Greece, but that does not degrade... More
