Oozing with tradition, style and old world charm, this meze / deli house will not stay under the radar for long and has won the tick of approval from locals of where to #eat in #Athens.
Housed in a restored neoclassical building with indoor and outdoor seating, many of the original features remain such as the frescos. There is a well-priced menu including hot and cold meze plates, deli meats, aged Greek cheeses and more sizable dishes too.
Other highlights include, small gourmet sausages, home made savoury pies, dolmades and ‘mamas’ homemade baklava. There is a solid offering of ouzo, wines and Tsipouro. The cherry flavoured soda, sweetened with stevia shows they are very much with the times and have carefully considered all parts of the menu. The food is prepared with an equal amount of love and care.
