Customer Reviews

“The experience was absolutely great. The staff made my wife and I feel special from the time we arrived, and she had a great birthday experience. Dimitris led a great tasting class. He was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic and I think we felt the energy and passion because of this. The tasting was especially unique because of the ancient history of olive oil and the differences and pairings of the oils we tasted. I would highly recommend this tasting to anyone looking for a great and timely experience in Athens. It was an excellent venue and the value was incredible. The Tarvel Porter also went out of the way to make sure we could be accommodated on my wife's birthday. Thank you to everyone involved! 10/10” * Khris - St. Louis, MO, USA

"This was the most entertaining and informative experience that I've encountered so far in Athens. The hospitality and education that we received in the olive oil Tasting Room was far superior to even the two or we received of the Acropolis. Not only is the owner knowledgeable and passionate about olive oil but he has all the documentation and research to back up his claims of having the number one olive oil in the world. We enjoyed our tasting and experience with Yagos so much that we are flying home with six bottles of our own with plans to buy more when we get back to America. If you have an hour or so to spare in your trip I would say this is more than anything you could ever expect and anyone of any age will enjoy it. I highly recommend!" * Gregory - CA, USA

"We tried the “Olive Oil Bar” under the guidance of the as volubile as knowledgeable Yagos who told us everything about olive oil, from how to make it to how to match different varieties with food - and who also speaks fluent French, to my husband’s delight. Highly recommended!" * Jane - Hong Kong

Yanis taught us so much about olive oil and we enjoyed tasting the different varieties. Book now!! You won’t regret it :)" * Ariel - TX, USA

Great experience! Would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone. Yagos is amazingly entertaining, knowledgeable, and thoroughly lovely and enjoyable! The setting was intimate, professional, extremely well set up. Great, great time! I know so much more about olive oil now thanks to this wonderful evening! * Iain - VT, USA
