It was our first night in Athens and i am really glad we chose this place to have dinner. The service was very friendly but a bit slow. The decorations were nice and it was not very pricey. I would definitely recommend this place

If one has fondness for Mexican food then please find your way to this place. Trip advisor helped us in finding this place near our hotel and it was an awesome experience.
