Fodor's Expert Review To Geitoniko
Christina and Manolis, the former owners, have now passed the baton to their son Constantinos, who has elevated the home-style Greek dishes served here, in a typical old Hydriot house with stone floors and wooden ceilings, where time seems to have been standing still since the 1950s. If it's available, try the fresh fish that is prepared to perfection, but check the prices so you don't have any surprises. Scrumptious desserts include chocolate 'bomb' with ice cream and a shot of liqueur and two types of halvah. It's a good idea to arrive before 9 pm for dinner; there are only 20 tables under the open-air vine-covered pergola upstairs, and they fill up quickly.
