Fodor's Review

In warm weather it's worth stopping by this place just to have a drink and enjoy the delightful, painterly scene from the roof garden—a sweeping view of the Acropolis and Mt. Lycabettus. In cooler weather take a seat in the sunny, cheerful dining room off a pedestrian walkway and enjoy a traditional Greek coffee prepared on hot ashes (xovoli) and homemade cookies. The long list of mezedes includes both classics as well as more unusual dishes: tigania pork bites cooked in wine sauce; traditional Cretan bourek with potatoes, zucchini and soft cheese; kidneys with olive oil and oregano; and an array of regional cheeses, all washed down with a flowery white hima (barrel wine). The service is top-notch.
