It's nice to bump into this family run Greek restaurant. Apparently it has a lot of visitors in tripadvisor. It has a relaxing environment and provides place for people to chill. Food is above average but a Greek beer after an acropolis walk around in hot weather is very nice! Price is very reasonable. Having resided in Abu Dhabi for... More

Dine at Smile and you are part of the family. They offer exceptional food at reasonable prices, in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The outdoor seating is nicely decorated with plants that offer some privacy from the road and provides a cozy atmosphere, all while dining outdoors. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was absolutely delicious. My husband and... More

Service was warm, helpful and courteous. Food was delicious. Prices very reasonable. Must try the Greek yogurt with honey. I will definitely come back here and recommend this place.

Visited today 24/07/14 and had a fab meal for four with drinks. The bill came to less than €30. The Greek lady there even made a telephone booking for us at 'Athens Clue' after the meal. Service and food were excellent.

We found this place randomly on our first night in Athens and couldn't believe our luck. Just up the road from our hotel with a 7.5€ "crisis menu" which offers more than enough food for one person! Needless to say we were back 4 more times during our stay and the staff were always so happy to see us and... More

Just stopped by for a lunchtime snack and drink. Had Chicken Gyros in Pitta / Tomatoes and feta on Garlic Bread, 250ml of rose wine and a Mythos beer for €11.00. Service was friendly, no hassle from waiters to drag you in from the street either which was nice too. Close to the Acropolis - but just far enough away... More

After pretty much no sleep my friend and I were more than happy to stumble across this place. We were ushered inside and made to feel like royalty - I don't think I've ever had more attention in a restaurant! Service was great, food was out quickly and was the perfect balance of affordability and quality. Our waitress took great... More

Stayed in Athens near the Acropolis for five days and was at the Smile restaurant each and every one of those days! Aside from the great food, large portions, and reasonable prices, the owners/staff are awesome!! Very friendly, very nice and very helpful with a number of questions regarding Athens (places to visit, how to get to the bus station,... More
