Its name means "two dimes an oca", with oca being an old mass measurement unit, and will take you to the past. The flavours will do the same, as they resemble of an old, experienced Greek housewife's way of cooking. Pure ingredients, rich spices and lots of imagination are shuffled daily to offer you original culinary experiences. As for the space? Simple, cozy and welcoming. With beautiful decorative details that will make you feel intimate, like if you ate at a friend's house. At the evening, live music makes the mood take off.

I visited Dio with my husband on the first night of our stay in Athens. The restaurant had been recommended to us by friends and we weren't disappointed. We had brilliant service and enjoyed the food a it. We tried a few of the specials: stuffed peppers and tomatoes; moussaka; eggplant dip. All were delicious and reasonably priced.

Excellent food and great atmosphere- the kids felt at home. Great variety on the menu, and traditional Greek cooking. Pork in lemon sauce was succulent, chicken souvlaki and sausages were great for the kids.

I was looking for home-style authentic Greek food and certainly found it in this pleasant welcoming restaurant. There was a variety of choices. I eventually had great baked fish and a delicious dish of spinach & rice. The service was great too. I will certainly come back when I am in Athens again.

Service was great and so was food. There's a strong menu and a display case of specials extra from the menu that you can choose. Greate after The Acropolis Museum.

We chose this restaurant based on the volume of fantastic reviews, and afterwards we simply had to check that we've visited the right place!
We visited the restaurant around noon to make a reservation for dinner, and a very nice and welcoming man presented todays specials.
When we returned several hours later, we couldn't help to see that the same courses were still simmering in the pans (you could tell this from the cutting pattern), meaning that the food was at least 8 hours old (or worse!).
We had decided for this restaurant because of the online-menu offering some of our Greek favorites, but when we received the actual card, these favorites had simply disappeared.
The waiter told us that the courses were changed every day, very hard to believe when you present a printed, laminated menu card...
Prices on the printed card were 20-30% higher than online prices (still are - checked it 10 minutes ago).
Room is cafeteria like, and food is mediocre, I can't believe that all reviewers have had Greek food elsewhere...
Simply just on of THOSE places!
