it interesting, not just the same "old same old" that you get in most other tavernas. It is just down the street from Syntagma Square, right in the heart of the city, perfect to plan into a day of sightseeing.

The food here is excellent as is the service. Go for lunch, less crowded. Greek food with a twist. They have an excellent dish that is chicken in a creme/mastika sauce with pieces of spiral filo throughout. Try it! You'll thank me!

Elaborate modern greek cuisine, everything we tried was tasty and a great combination of flavours. Busy at times, the meal wasn't served really warm, but worth trying

The name of the restaurant means the Ant and the Cricket, the name of one of Aesop's fables. And the restaurant is similarly folksy--but because it's in the center of Athens, about a block and a half from Syntagma (on Mitropoleos), it's also a bit slick and modern...in a good way. The food is very particular, fresh regional Greek specialties--a lot of uncommon dishes, but also some typical stuff, like rusk-and-tomato salad, but even that is plated in a creative way. The interior is styled like a village store--lots of shelves with groceries on display. This is a great find in a difficult part of town for nice restaurants. Oh, and it does not hurt at all that they pour you free shots of raki before you even order!
