Had a great time and learned some things about Greek cooking, learned some great recipes and met some new friends. If you live to cook, then this is for you!

This was so much fun and the restaurant's atmosphere was great!! Our hostess, Maria, was a blast! We made six appetizers and a main course, and of course we indulge in several Greek wines. Everything was cooked with fresh ingredients. And boy, we ate so much food! Definitely recommend this tour for a perfect gastronomical experience with Greek food. Before we left we were given recipes for all the dishes we made.

My friend and I had a great time learning how to cook some Greek "comfort food" that Greeks grew up eating. The location was inside a charming museum style restaurant where as you get your lesson, you can enjoy the beautiful paintings and wall frescos. The recipes are simple yet delicious and our entire group had a good time laughing and learning and sampling the food as we go along this journey in gastronomic delight. The wine was aromatic without being too sweet or too dry. A classical and intimate setting for a family style gathering of strangers that became friends through this shared experience.

Our tour got a late start as the guide meeting us waited an additional 30 minutes as he miscounted participants. Mary tried to make up for time but it was a bit rushed. She is an excellent cook and instructor but had the challenges of trying to teach with music and other diners talking-difficult to hear at times.. Although the restaurant is charming, is was very hot, noisy, and the smoking distracted from the experience. I almost left the class due to the heat and one person had left prior to me. I do look forward to trying the delicious recipes at home.

The cooking class was the absolute highlight of my stay in Athens! The restaurant we cooked in was so cute and fun, it perfectly emobodied what I would have imagined as a Greek restaurant. We learned step by step how prepare the food and got all the recipes at the end to take home! It surpassed my expectations. I would recommend this class to anyone, it was amazing!

This class was nothing short of amazing and Mary, our host, was an absolute delight. The location, in a small bustling taverna, with a small group so that everyone could participate was fantastic. I did the class with my step-daughter and we learnt an amazing amount of information, got to practice making some of our favourites dishes and then - best of all - taste them! A word of warning, do not eat anything before you go - the amount of food you make and then sit down to share is phenomenal! A true highlight of our trip.

This class is highly recommended and influenced my eating habits for the duration of my time in Greece. Everything was well laid out and prepared. You participated as much as you were comfortable with. I felt like I was having a family dinner by the end. Maria is so cute and funny. The tour was easy to find as you met the guide straight off the metro.

This was without doubt the best cooking class ever. Gina met us and walked us to the tavern where the amazing Maria gave us ideas hints and hands on instructions to cooking many dishes, pastries, dips, salads etc. Maria was positive, encouraging and we all had a ball. Then we had to eat it all. So much food, plenty of wine and great entertainment as well as helpful cooking tips. Way too much food - ate leftovers for next few days. Thanks Maria

Such a fantastic experience! Definitely a must-do for food lovers in Athens. We loved the cozy, traditional feel of the taverna, the friendly staff and of course the amazing food that we had the chance to cook and taste.

The cooking class was great. Maria, the cook, was quite good and taught both to the neophyte and to the experienced cook. We prepared local food which is easy to prepare at home. Maria answered all our questions about preparing meals even those not related to the dinner at hand. The evening began at 5:30 and ended way after 10:00. Wonderful evening.

The Greek Cooking Class with Maria was one of the highlights of our trip to Athens. My wife and I had the best time and Maria was a wonderful host and excellent instructor. The tavern is a lovely environment and all were there to serve and make sure you have a great time...and we did. As a group, we made mini eggplant pies, feta cheese salad, authentic Greek tzatziki, and rolled our own dolmadakia using grape leaves. Eggplant salad was next and then we prepared an excellent Greek salad to finally top it off with a delicious lamb dish. Our group was very engaged in helping prepare all the ingredients, mixing, chopping, kneading, and then enjoying the fruits of our labor at a large table with delicious beverages. Through each step in making the dishes, Maria not explains the process but also some of the history of the dish and why it is so special to the Greek community. Don't worry about remembering the details since she gives each guest a pamphlet that outlines the ingredients and cooking instructions. It was an exceptional evening with Maria and her team.
