Good service. Sirloin steak is really good. Portion is generous. The salad is a bit too salty. We sat on the roof top. Pity that the building opposite to it is under renovation. Otherwise, the view is not bad.

Very nice food. Seafood pasta and special fish both taste very nice. Pasta with lamb and onion is recommended by Nikos, who is very hoapital and provide great service. Dessert is better than expected. Very suitable for couples! 很棒的食物,服务和氛围也特别好。之前看谷歌和猫途鹰都推荐,果然名不虚传!Nikos服务特别周到,我们没有预约却很幸运有座位。推荐!

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
