Kati allo

Great restaurant by the acropolis. I went here for lunch and had the stuffed zucchini with beef stew and it was amazing. Definitely go here for lunch while in Athens.

Our first night in Athens after 23 hours from Australia. It was recommended by both TA and Bòoking.com. It follows our rule of not eating on the tourist strip and avoiding set or tourist menus. Fabulous little place, welcoming host and great food. 3 dishes and wine for 24 euro. We'll be back again before we leave Athens.

So pleased that I stumbled on this great cafe which is patronized by locals as well as tourists. A family affair with mum and dad doing the cooking while their son is front of house and talks you through the great choice of dishes. Simple home made cooking. Highly recommended, and just around the corner from the entrance to the... More

We finished at The Acropolis Museum and consulted our Rick Steves' guidebook for a place to eat nearby and found this gem of a recommendation. We were well taken care of and our lunches were delicious!! It is the type of meal you wish you could recreate at home. Highly recommended the moussaka.

This little gem is within short walking distance from the Acropolis Museum subway station, but away from the numerous outdoor terrasses touting their nearly identical menus. Kosta, the owner, invited us in to view the evening's fare, just prepared by his Mother. (No menus here!) Spit-roasted chicken, Moussaka, Greek salad, stuffed vine leaves, fish, lamb chops and more. We returned... More

We sought this place out for lunch based on Rick Steves' review. You select your dishes from the display up front, and they write it down and bring it to you. Great flavors and so much food! And not expensive either. Well worth the effort to find it behind the Acropolis Museum.

We walked in because it was one of the top rated restaurants on trip advisor, we stayed because basically a Greek Grandma opened up her kitchen and had many home cooked dishes to choose from. She even looked out for us to have a balanced meal and suggested we add a Greek salad to our stuffed chicken and spinach crepe... More

This review is well overdue. We were here many years ago and ate at this restaurant several times, but i never checked the name of it. Searching Google maps i found it and brought back wonderful memories of our stay in Athens. We now reminisce about how we sat outside on the footpath(sidewalk) eating the wonderful food and drinking Mythos... More

Kati Allo is a family run restaurant on a side street close to the Acropoilis. The restaurant fills up quickly so get there early. There are inside and outside seats. All six of our group enjoyed their choices for dinner from the limited menu - succulent lamb chops and stuffed red peppers were a big hit. Meat and fish are... More

This place is right next to the Acropolis, yet it has a feel of the neighborhood cafe. They are always cooking something and are happy to let you try their dishes right out of the pot. Most of the time, this place is full of locals, which is always a good sign!

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.
