Not that great

We visited here for lunch after reading all the glowing reviews on here and I must say, we were quite disappointed. I had read a few reviewers mention that the mixed grill platter was so big and great and that they were unable to finish it. We ordered this thinking we would be getting value for... read more

Positioned not far from Hadrian's Gate, this restaurant proved to be a real hit with our family. The surroundings are somewhat basic but the reception is warm and genuine and the staff are really attentive and make a genuine difference. The menu is varied though would not be classified as haut cuisine - but Smile does not claim to be.... More

During my short stay in Athens, I visited this restaurant twice. The staff was beyond friendly, the atmosphere was very friendly and welcoming, and the food was reasonably priced and very yummy. Overall, a great restaurant. (So great that I had to go back!)

Our first visit to this restaurant after many years of coming to Athens and it did not disappoint. A thoroughly excellent place to go to eat. You are treated like family and the food was fantastic. Total value for money. Dont get ripped off in Plaka. It's just a walk around the corner. The staff are amazing and you are... More

Slightly off the main streets of the Acropolis - smile is a quaint family run restaurant that offers friendly service, good homely food at prices that round the corner would be treble! It is what it is! Well worth a visit!

It's worth to visit this place to say 'thank you' for free maps available in all more important places in the city. Food was tasty. There is missing some restaurant's design or atmosphere as it looks more like bar but anyway it's worth to eat there, especially souvlaki.

Nice litle Reastaurant/Cafe serving traditional Greek disches without trying to make it fancy. Good prices, large portions and very friendly staff. As I travel a lot I do not want to go upscale restaurants when I am on my own and this place is jsut great for a quick and tasty meal in the evening. Food comes quick and is... More
