A mix of traditional Greek dishes

We were recommended To Kafeneio as a place to eat a variety of Greek dishes sitting next to a fireplace. The food was great and the atmosphere fantastic.

Delicious flavorful food served tapas style. Friendly, helpful service. Warm welcoming ambiance with a fire place in the corner. Limited seating so book in advance if possible. I ate here with my family of 3 kids and wife. She would like to eat at this Restuarant every meal if I let her...she liked it that much. Would definitely recommend. NOT... More

Followed the guide book recommendation to this place and wasn't disappointed. It's a tapas style taverna and we shared 4 dishes which was more than enough for 2 of us. The food was very good especially the salmon in pastry. The local Syrah was also worth the €22 tag. Service was attentive and friendly and the open fire in winter... More

Saw this recommended in our guidebook so checked it out. Loved the decor, staff very friendly and the food was great. Though not a massive choice on the menu.

Plaka is not where you'd go for the real Athens experience (I would recommend Exarcheia) but this place is worth visiting. Apparently Jamie Oliver once raved about it, as the menu made very clear.. Aside from being loved by TV chefs, the food and atmosphere for a quiet lunch are indeed excellent. You can sit outside and watch the manager... More

A Greek friend of mine recommended this place and we went there while in Athens. The food was delicious with the aubergine salad topping the list. The house special meat dish was especially flavorful. The wine recommended by the waiter perfectly complemented the food. Decent portions, reasonable prices and very friendly staff!

My boyfriend and I was looking for a ''no-tourists-attrap' restaurant and we got there, it's a small rustic restaurant in a quiet little street with a real fireplace. The food was what we expected of real traditional greek food. They have really good beers and wines and the food was just perfect. (We took the famous meetballs with the sauce... More

We have been to Athens twice now in the winter and have eaten here several times. A very cosy warm restaurant in a lovely old building in the very touristy but very pretty area of Plaka. The house wine was very reasonable priced and we always have a great selection of different dishes and are always surprised at how reasonable... More

a very special place with an excellent service. The food is really different, a welcome variation after 3 days of gyros and souvlakia!

I have been going there for too many years to remember and whenever I have guests from abroad, I take them there and they love it! Food is super delicious, very good value. Tables outside in summer and a fireplace in winter. They claim their speciality is the meatballs with the red sauce. For me, everything is very tasty. Service... More
