Why locals love it

Aster serves authentic cretan food. Locals always order the "Asterpotatoes", a sour cretan cheese called "xinogala" and "apaki". Definitel,y when visit order one of these (or all...or more!). Also order to drink "Rakomelo", which is a very famous cretan drink.

Why you should visit it

You will be mesmerized by all the different (and cute) plates and glasses that you will be served in and you will enjoy the hospitality of the owners. You will probably be the only foreigner amongst locals! Also in the summer there are tables out in the street.

Special tip

1) It's very small, so a reservation is recommended. 2) Please visit the bathroom, you will understand...

Great Greek cuisine in a new coming hip area ;! Worth to explore! Gluten free food as well!

Don't go to that place. We had a problem with a bill. Even when I realized they tried to cheat me, get an extra money from me and told them about it, they said "sorry" and gave me another incorrect bill with incorrect total to get an extra money. The worst restaurant in Athens that I saw in four days.
