Great food

This place is a little out of way but worth the extra half block walk from the mostly tourist trap eateries around the Acropolis. Great food like Mom would make (if she was a really good cook).

- Useless a/c while windows and doors wide open, outside hell temperature. Very dirty kitchen. Lots of flies in the kitchen and on the foods. Staff looks neglected as well as not interesting ambience at all. The mousaka was dry inside, probably not fresh or well cooked. The greek salad was warm and its cheese was warm and not feta...

We came across this place on the recommendation of our amazing guide, and it did not disappoint. Hands down one of the best, and most unexpectedly authentic and delicious meals we had during our entire trip to Greece. We visited for lunch. The woman who is the proprietor couldn't have been nicer and the food.....there are no words to describe... More

The only down side is the location and the ambiance: the place is crammed and cheap. The staff is nice, and at least a couple of waiters speak good english

My wife and I went here on a Sunday night after reading several reviews and were not disappointed. We sat outside, and despite being 9pm on a Sunday, the restaurant was relatively busy with a healthy amount of locals. The food was excellent - the tzaziki was some of the best I've ever had. The moussaka was fresh homemade, and... More

My wife and I ate here the first day we were in Athens. It was right around the corner from our hotel (Hotel Hera) and we heard it was good from Trip Advisor reviews. It is a small restaurant with a small selection of dishes. The food was excellent. The owner explained what they had that day and we picked... More

We visited this place for lunch based on tripadvisor. I have no idea how this place has such good reviews-maybe its different for dinner. Food was below average, microwaved and cold in the middle. I would not recommend visiting this restaurant

I was initially annoyed that my man made me pass all the obvious tourist restaurants to go to this one, since he had read the review. However, I was eventually glad because the food was AMAZING--you choose from what was prepared that day--I had a beef and rice meal--and the service was quick and friendly.

One of the best meals in Greece, right behind Acropolis museum. Service by the family is brilliant, house wine is fine for Greek standards.

Lovely little place. We ate here by accident, and were so glad we found it. The food is excellent! The best pork we had in Greece, hands down!! The staff (mostly family members) are fun and friendly. Highly recommended.

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.
