We arrived late in Athens and needed something close by, so we walked over to this taverna. The owners were genuinely helpful and while nothing was the best of its type that we ate in Greece, it was all very good and the portions were hearty. And for the rest of our stay in Athens, each time we passed by... More

The food was good but nothing special. Everything well priced and the waiter was not as annoying as most others in the area. Definitely not very touristic and more a traditional tavern.

This was recommended by a "local" blogger and I have no idea why unless they were paid for the recommendation. The food was cold and tasteless - I could even finish the meal. Definitely avoid if you see it.

Ordered stuffed paprika, baked chicken with potatoes and Mousakka. All tasted very delicious although I haven't that many Greek meals to make an authoritative review. No menu was given so we picked our food directly from the counter. Old couple who runs the restaurant were genuinely friendly.

Popped into this unassuming looking eatery as it was near our hotel, and was pleasantly surprised at the home cooked style food on offer. There's no menu, you just go to the counter and pick what you like. The roast chicken with potatoes was superb and the stuffed paprika, also excellent. Definitely worth a visit when you're around the Acropolis... More

Go to Kati allo for affordable authentic greek food! We loved this place so much that we had our 3 meals here in our 2.5 day trip to Athens. They have excellent roasted meat options along with tasty veg options. Loved their beer and their coffee. Also, the hosts are great to speak to. Would love to go back to... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
