    Definitely one of the top three wine-bars in Athens. Charming location, good wine-list AND excellent "bites" if you are hungry. Vividly recommended

    Definitely a good place for wine connoisseurs. Huge wine list and tasty food (try their cherry tomato salad and mini burgers). Expensive but nice and warm, good for friend gatherings.

    It's been 3 years since my last visit and they seem to be getting it right! Excellent food, excellent wine suggestion (pic), and great service. It was also ridiculously packed on a Wednesday night!

    Our first time visiting Athens...this place was great and our server was very knowledgeable about local wines. Most importantly he was nice and not a wine snob. Food was great! #wineflight

    Pricey but worth it. If you have time to visit just one wine bar in Athens than this is the right place. Very nice and knowledgeable staff.

    This is one of the best wine bars in the city. Great space, very nice wines and tasty bites. Foteini, the owner is a reason to come back again and again.

    Stylish place with good service. The bottle we had (Helones) was excellent value for money; they brought nice herbed crisps with it. We ordered a small plate of cheese; really small(3 chunks for 5€).

    Best wine bar in Athens. Ask Foteini for special bottles which are not in the menu. She often has rare magnums or vintage santorini bottles. Great food as well!

    Well this is an elegant wine bar within a slight distance from Syntagma sq. Not my favorite one due to the lack of character. Great wine list. Last time I went it was crowded with seniors.

    There is some attitude with the waiters. Success definitely spoils.Try nearby Oinoscent instead if you seek a friendlier staff
