One of the busiest restaurants in this area because of the most welcoming staff, incredible Greek food in big portions and a buzzing atmosphere on a street terrace. Amazing value for money - including a carafe of wine and some free bread thrown in for good measure. Would go back in a flash for the souvlaki, halloumi, tapenade, pitta... The... More

Don´t miss a walk around this picturesque area of Athens. It´s right next to Plaka and it consists of crooked little streets and some very, very old constructions. It has some cafes but not so many and so it´s nice and quiet. We absolutely loved it!

The area known as Anafiotika on the side of the Acropolis is a hidden jewel in the bustling city of Athens. With it's white-washed houses, narrow lanes and lovely views of Athens you will never realize you are in a city of millions! It's very reminiscent of a small village on one of the Cyclades Islands, intimate, inviting, and exciting... More

I would recommend visiting on a sunny day not in the eating hours so that you can take pictures without crowds sitting in restaurants. Wouldn't go there alone after dark though!

Anafiotika are like a picturesque islander village in downtown Athens. You need about half an hour to take a quick stroll but it is highly recommended that you extend and enjoy. Anafiotika means "of Anafi island" and were built by skilled builders from the Cycladic island who had migrated in Athens around 1840-1850 to help rebuild the city. The style... More

Fabulous, old neighbourhood, with “miniature” houses and streets so narrow you can’t even swing a cat around. Not that I’ve tried it. I couldn’t catch one.

It is a nice restaurant in a very nice location . The service is a bit slow and the food is average. It has a wifi and if the weather is good you can sit outsite as well.

A lovely location just under the Acropolis halfway up a hill in the Plaka. The restaurant was heaving both inside and out even though it was a cool January evening (they had outdoor heaters)and deservedly so. The food was delicious but be warned Greece seems to work on American portion sizes. Starters should be shared and main courses were very... More

While visiting the city centre on foot,you will reach at this beautiful part and will enjoy this place very much as the old buildings and narrow small roads are still making this place as one of the most visited sites in the city centre. Strongly recommended to pay a visit and seat at any of cafes&tavernas to eat or drink... More

Beautiful little narrow streets on the way to the hill of Acropolis. It starts just after Plaka. Great views and cozy place to visit just before visiting the Acropolis. A total recommend. The best way to reach this place is to walk straight the Plaka towards the Acropolis without turning to any smaller streets.
