Bought 2 crossiants which costed 2.60€ from the shop - they became our lunch the next day

Rested a while and then decided to take dinner at Oroscopo which had very good reviews on Tripadvisor. It was 2 stops away from Monastiraki Square and was in a residential area. Single trip costed 1.40€ per person. We were early so no reservation was required.


Ambience was pleasant and it had a high class feeling. Service was very good and fantastic. They offered complimentary soup and desert! Food were tasty. Desert was greek yogurt and hubby loved it!
