Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Charming restaurant with a simple menu that included some tasty Greek traditions. The service was self assured and any tourist shouldn’t expect to be treated more favourably than the locals. A little island of authenticity amongst a lot of snobby restaurants & bars.

I walked out of the restaurant because it was obvious they discriminated against me as a solo diner. First they discussed where I could sit and if I sat outside, I could have the table for one hour. It was a little before 8 pm...when I got there. So I sat down, they gave me a glass of water and then nobody came back for 10 minutes. The waitress came to the table next to me. Still no service for me. So I got up and left. Very disappointed as I’ve been a regular visitor to Greece for over forty years and this is only the second time I’ve got up and left a restaurant that was discriminating against me as a solo diner. I wish I wasn’t writing this review, but solo women need to know the facts when dining out.More

What a lovely little restaurant! The decor and the set up for starters was amazing, extremely nice set up! We didn’t have a reservation as had just turned up not long after arriving in Athens. The staff were great and were really friendly in recommending...food options as there was so much to choose from We had the roasted aubergine (egg plant) with roasted tomatos, feta and herby oil as well as the meatballs. The meatballs were a family recipe and were unreal! Served with chips that were both crispy yet fluffy! You can see why it’s such a popular place in a quieter part of the city yet not far from the centreMore

Friendly service. Great traditional Greek food. I would suggest anyone go here in Athens for it. Huge portions! I asked the waiter for a half portion of Moussaka and didn't mind paying the full amount but he told me the chef's would just bring out...the full portion anyway? A waste, but was delicious all the same.More

Amazing place! The food was perfect, tasty and traditional Greek. The staff was kind, always ready to suggest different dishes. Also the location was different from other places, it was cozy and warm. And after all this perfect service I definitely didn't expect to pay...such a low price, we ate a whole dinner, full of dishes, and we pay less than 20€!! You absolutely have to try it :)More

I often eat at Oikeio with friends and colleagues. I really appreciate your extraordinary improvements in the menu and have spread the word to my friends. Usually your service is friendly and excellent. I was really surprised therefore to arrive with my wife at 6.15...in the evening on Tuesday to find a less than friendly reception. Despite a nearly empty restaurant, we were rudely told by the waiter on duty that we would have to sit at a table opposite each other. If we didn’t like it, we could go away. We were astonished and frankly preferred to go elsewhere. Unless your staff are better trained in future, we will not be back.More

Wonderful friendly service, great menu choice of typical greek dishes. Fresh ingredients and very reasonable pricing. Visited with a party of 11 people and we all loved it! We shared a various choices for entree all of which were fantastic. Would highly recommend the chicken...meatballs with yogurt dip.More

OIKEIO was our best restaurant in Athens. The staff was extremely nice and funny. Very attentive to even the smallest details. We had for starters a tzatziki for two. My wife had an excellent moussaka and I had stuffed zucchini. Even though we didn't order...desserts we were offered candied cherry with our Greek coffee. Merci beaucoup.More

This place was recommended by the Periscope Hotel and it did not disappoint. We ate there twice because the food was so good. Our first dining experience we had the octopus appetizer and the fried feta with honey, the meatballs with a touch of mint...spice, and also chicken souvlaki. It was delicious. The portions were a good size and the prices very, very reasonable. We also had wine and chocolate cake for dessert. When we returned the second time, we had to pick the same apps since they were scrumptious. We also had the meatballs (again) and then the pasta with eggplant sauce and eggplants. Boy - it was delicious!!! The servers were friendly and attentive and we enjoyed chatting with Nicholas. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want Greek food that the locals eat.More
