We went there for the fish diversity and indeed it was diverse. Not everything was very fresh. The portions were big. The prices as well. The service a bit slow and weird. It felt strange the waitress could not tell which fish was fresh and which one was frozen.

I often eat here and almost always the food was delicious. This is not a fancy place but they offer simple delicious fish and seafood. I love the shrimps and the seafood platter. The prices are ok given the dishes. Everything I tried was really good. Service, instead, is poor but as long as you don't mind absent waiters it's... More

The seafood soup was the same as the fish soup, they only boiled some mussels and octopus for 3 minutes and add them in the fish soup. The sauce from garlic and butter shrimps was thick and heavy for the stomach. It's true that the portion was big enough. I don't now if the food is not so tasty just... More

I went to this restaurant three times and the food was great each time. They have fresh sea food at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

The food was good, we ate all and what we couldn't we took home. As a fan of greek cuisine, i can say that it stays in top 5 in Bucharest Greek restaurants. Tirosalata, fish roe salad, olives pane, etc., everything was tasty. I can't get past the fact that the garden is crowded, and not in a good way.... More
