5F deserves 5F’ing Stars!!!!! EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS!! Costas the owner was personable. Great staff.
We ate at this restaurant on May 10th. Without a doubt it was one of our 10 favorite overall dining experiences anywhere. Anytime. On any continent. This was one of those restaurants where they bring you many different dishes to try. We started with a large bowl of fava bean soup and fresh bread. This was followed by a Greek salad topped with a huge chunk of feta cheese. And then two different lamb dishes so moist it melted in our happy mouth. By then we were completely full. However, the owner Costas was just getting started! He then brought a carafe of wine his dad made in Crete. Lamb and Beef grilled patties and fries were then placed on our table. We were more than done. But before we could beg for mercy, Costas brought desert of a semolina halvah with honey and cinnamon. Incredible.Costas was the ideal host. Gracious, kind, knowledgeable and interesting. He seems to get pure joy in taking care of his guests. His restaurant has a laid back charm and his entire staff was professional and in tune with each other.Costas packed us a to-go bag which will easily cover another meal.We then asked for the check. We had no idea how much the bill would be as there was no menu. We thought the bill would be about 30 Euros each, and that would have felt more than fair. We were pleasantly surprised when the total bill out the door was 19 euros for two including wine.Go to 5F and see why we gave it 5F’ing Stars!!!!!Jonny & Heidi

Food service and sheer hospitality of dining in a family restaurant with a zest to ensure the customer is king and really has a amazing experience.

We are delighted to read such positive comments and that you enjoyed the quality of the service and the food. It will be an absolute pleasure to welcome you back in our restaurant, when you are next in Athens.

A true gastronomic experience
We visited with an international friend for dinner at Friday night. Nice atmosphere at first sight, the place was quite busy with nice music and a relaxed vibe. I liked the balance between formality and friendly tones from the service team, who was extremely good; Helpful, knowledgeable, attentive without being intrusive. They asked us if we had allergies or something that we do not eat because of the blind tasting! We chose the 9 steps menu and the wine pairing (a must!). All dishes were exceptional but we really had a crush on the veloute soup flavored with lobster, the fresh fish with an amazing hollandais sauce, the fois gras and the amuse bouches! In general, it was an unforgettable gastronomic experience. I will visit again soon!

Excellent food experience!
This was our favorite meal in Greece, and top five ever. Just incredible food, and incredible service. Loved the languostine croquettes, the lobster risotto, and the tuna appetizer, but everything they served was absolutely delicious. This restaurant can pretty much single-handedly add the culinary magic to your Greece trip.

We had a six plate menu (plus the desert). The plates were fish oriented, with respect to traditional Mediterranean cuisine, but “touched “ in a modern way as well. Every dish was escorted with an adequate glass of wine. The atmosphere is great and service was excellent. We absolutely recommend this restaurant!

A very good choice for quality food. I think their expertise is grilled meat: pork, beef and lamp. Fried potatoes are also very good and fresh cut. I have also tried the meat and rice stuffed zucchini with egg lemon sauce. It is also very good. They serve both fresh and boiked salads.

Excellent Authentic Greek Seafood
We had just completed ten days across Greece and we're staying at Hilton hotel Athens. We didn't want our last night eating standard western food. Luckily we stumbled on Varka which was only a 5 minute walk away. Nice, casual restaurant where we could see the chef preparing our meals from where we dined inside. There were also dining tables outside but the night was quite hot and we wanted air conditioning. Even though there was only 2 of us , we ordered 7 dishes to get a great variety of the what was offered. We enjoyed every meal which was fresh, authentic and very good. We recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys plate sharing traditional Greek seafood dishes.

Best Greek restaurant we have visited in Athens so far
This is a lovely Greek restaurant.We had lunch at this restaurant and the food was very good, the service fast and courteous, and we had overall good experience. We were a large group which includes many vegetarians as well but all were positive on the food they had.We had a Fava bean and Egg plant salad as starters ( both were good) followed by Chicken with feta cheese ( excellent) and Shrimp and pasta ( very good). The Desert - yogurt with cooked oranges; and a cake with cream was also very good. Do also have the house red wine which we enjoyed.Recommended

Great price, good quality, traditional italian pizza
This is one of the best places to eat pizza in Athens.It is really cheap compared to other pizzerias. The quality is really good most of the times, but it always tastes good.One extra advantage of this place is that they use a wood oven to bake them.They are open every day after 17:30. They offer delivery in many areas in Athens.You can also order online at they website justpizza[dot]gr
