Pleasant atmosphere. Good sevice and good food

Taverna o damigos is a cozy and informal restaurant. The staff is friendly and the food good. The house wine was simple but matched the food. I recommend the Taverna to anyone who is interested in authentic greek food and restaurants.

This was a recommendation from a local guidebook and wow was it worth it. Located in the basement of an old building, you walk into the original tavern experience. Small tables, paper cloths, tumblers for wine. Wine comes in carafes at 4 euros a half litre - produced by the owner. Perfectly drinkable. Open kitchen to one side where you... More

Cozy taverna with very warm staff and delicious food. Everything we tried was great and very reasonable price. The nice: you can see the cook in action. Even though the kitchen is right next to the tables, there's no kitchen vapor or food smell in the taverna. It is very well thought and done. Bonus: we got a little halva... More

This small restaurant is located in the heart of Plaka, the food is quite good but very expensive for not something special. I don't think it worth to eat again there

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. The neighbourhood (Plaka) is full of restaurants, mostly tourists type and, as for many Athens restaurants, they smoke despite the fact that it is not legal. Not this one. They also do not try to drag you in like many others. Small entrance and steps to go in a basement. Looks like... More

The food is simply made great, in front of your eyes, as the kitchen is opened for everyone to see the cook's actions (did not notice a microwave oven...). And, hospitality was wonderful too. We have been in an expensive and fancy tavern a night after eating here - but this place is much better.

Great food (mostly) and good prices for the centre of Athens. Very good bakaliaros (fried cod), home made dolmadakia (stuffed wine leaves), fava and wine. I wouldn't go for kolokythokeftedes (courgette balls) again. Good atmposphere, friendly service. Great in a place where there are only tourist restaurants with waiters trying to get you in. This one is authentic and unpretentious.

Isn't it good to be able to write a review when you have nothing negative to say? Blink, and you'll miss it, situated in a cellar beneath the shops of Plaka, this is a true find. Owned by the same family for over 100 years, this is the place to taste superb Greek food and excellent local wine. However, the... More

Great food and service at a very affordable price. They serve greek dishes, homemade, in a very cosy ambiance. Specially attractive for winter time as it is placed in a basement, and lower temperatures make terraces harder to enjoy. On the contrary, it is quite warm so we particullarly enjoyed going there as it was 14ºC that night
