We have eaten Cod in many countries, but this little restaurant in Athens served the very best we have tasted. We had ten days in Athens and five meals here because it served the best octopus and rooster too, and the aubergine was perfect.. Thanos and his staff are so friendly and serve consistently delicious food. The three hundred year... More

I have been coming to the Plaka for some years now and have always walked pass this place and wondered what it would be like. It had some mystique as it is in a basement and has been running for many years. I read the reviews and thought that i would give it a go. First of all the atmosphere... More

O Damigos is one of the oldest family run tavernas in the Plaka. My first visit was 30 years ago and I never forgot it. Returned recently and enjoyed it even more. Lovely atmosphere, professional, friendly service and great food. The swordfish was excellent and serves are generous.

Definitely the best dinner we had in Athens. The place was very busy and we didn't book, so we started almost at midnight a warm welcome from the owners and great salad and cold dishes to stat. The main dishes including the traditional Bakaliarakia were tasteful and the best was the octopus and the shrimps. For dessert we asked for... More

After re-visiting some old favourites in the first nights, we decided to try a new place. Food was ok-ish, fairly well done and economical but nothing really stood out... with so many other brilliant places to go to in Athens, it might just be difficult to come back ...

... a restaurant with a very tasty fish and without the annoying people on the street trying to convince you to come in. ... proper vegetables on the menu. ... a reasonable price for high quality.

This is an old, authentic, Taverna, in the Plaka. Went there for dinner, attracted by the fact that one of its specialties is cod (I am Portuguese...), and I definitely wanted to taste to local way of cooking it. The place was full with foreigners, just like me, but I was not put off by the touristy appeal. Started with... More

Once you tear your gaze away from the colourful backlit ouzo bottles of Brettos' bar and spirits shop on the ground floor and look down at the simple blue door of Damigos that leads to the basement - don't hesitate. You're in for a treat so go inside. The star is the deep-fried salt cod with skordalia (olive oil mashed... More

I don't know how this restaurant gets the ££££ sign: it is one of the cheapest in Plaka. Food and wine is good,service is friendly. I've been there a number of times and will go again.

We got into this restaurant by chance. The open kitchen fresh octopus down there in the basement attracted us. The chef was working very relaxed with confidence. We took the opportunity and tried it. Was great and the fresh octopus was delicious indeed. The price and the quality was great indeed. We had tried many expensive restaurants in plaka but... More
