The is not easy to find and doesn't look anything special but the food is traditional and because it sticks to a smnall menu with what it does well the food is brilliant. The wine was the best value of all in Athens and very easy drinking. The guys are on the ball and always willing to give advice. This... More

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and were treated to quite an authentic experience. We had a strong feeling that we were the only non-locals in the place. The restaurant is cozy in a good way, and has the feeling of home with lively conversation at all tables. Despite being crowded, the host quickly created space for us. All... More

When we walked into the historic house, we immediately felt the warmth of an intimate, unpretentious place. It was exactly that. The food was simple and excellent. The... More

The Taverna "To Kafeneio" is a great restaurant in Plaka. The Location is really nice and quite; outside and inside. Especially the inside area makes it a good choice for the colder time in Athens. The food is very good and there is a big variety of different meals. It would really recommend it.

Came here based off the great reviews and did not regret it. My girlfriend and I split the mantouri salad and the meatballs with THE sauce; both were delicious. Nice outdoor seating area as well. Perfect spot for a nice lunch in Athens.
