Nice location, good mezze, service could be better!

We went there with my friends for your first lunch in Grece following the recommandation of the Lonely planet...and I was excepting a restaurant with a better atmosphere! The service is very simple, we didn't get good advices and it wasn't easy to choose what to eat because we didn't know anything... read more

This ouzomezedopoleio just 50 meters from the busiest square in Plaka is a waterhole for people that want to relax, zip an ouzo and enjoy some mezedes. Always quite and easygoing.

We went out of our way to find this restaurant, the food was average and there was no atmosphere. The 'Greek' sausages were frankfurters and the rest of the food was passable. The price was average and it was easy to get a table! But maybe that was understandable!

My boyfriend and I visited O Glykis on our last evening in Athens after sampling a variety of different food and environments throughout the city over the weekend. You have to look to find O Glykis, you wouldn't find it just on the street, it is in the back streets and this is the reason why almost everyone you find... More

We were looking for a place that had great atmosphere (low key) with food which was good and at a decent price. We could not have stopped at a better restaurant. 1. Great food - The portions were perfectly sized and everything tasted great. We ordered a variety of dishes and were happy with everything we tried. 2. Friendly service... More

Just a few meters from the incredibly busy touristic restaurants in Plaka is this nice restaurant. It was a nice garden terrace with some large fans to keep it cool and a menu composed of tasty appetisers, although many guests just come for drinks. The food was great and portions were large. The only downside was that there was only... More

One of the best and less touristic choices in Plaka for a coffee, ouzo and mezes. Fair prices, nice yard, friendly staff and good taste. If you don't want to mix with all the over-touristic cafes and restaurants in the main streets of Plaka, this is the perfect spot. A bit hard to find, but it's also the quest that... More

This is really a café that also serves food, mezze-style. We ordered red wine which was average, and four different dishes. The octopus salad and the potato salad were delicious, the chicken livers in white wine were a little too well done, and I didn't particularly like the "briám", a vegetable dish of cooked potatoes, courgette and tomato - it...

Tucked away in a tiny sidestreet off Kydathineon street & the mass of tavernas at Filomousou Etarias square, is this little gem of a place ideal for cooling off on hot summer days. Simple outdoor seating behind the shade of potted plants, where one can sample a variety of mezze (small dishes), including cheesepie, spinache pie, a selection of saganaki... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
