A true family & family-style place. Grandmother cooked and grand-daughter-in-law served while other family members and diners were all around. The food was delicious. We were certain we must have been eating just what our neighbors would have been eating in their kitchens for their dinners. We ate two meals there. It was all so good and filled us warmly.

We walked past this little place several times to and from the hotel and thought the menu board was interesting (and extremely reasonable). Out of curiosity decided to look it up...and pleasantly surprised by the reviews here as well as a Rick Steves photo. Went back the next day and was greeted by the friendly owner (who works ridiculous hours... More

It was our first day and after our tour of the Acropolis, we were famish and also still feeling jetlagged. We went in because of the smell of the meat!. We had grilled lamb, the greek salad and a crepe with spinach. They were all good and lasted until dinner :).

An institution, To Kati Allo is in a very convenient location. The menu is not huge, but that doesn't matter. The food is well-cooked, the service friendly, and the cost is moderate. Relaxing, family-run restaurant. Love the food. Feels like you are calling in to an old family friend. Highly, highly recommended. Ate here for lunch and dinner. Called in... More

Excellent restaurant that we found by mistake. This is the type of restaurant I'm looking for when I'm looking for a local food. They have a variety of local cooked dishes and grilled meat. We ended ordering 7 main course for 4 people just to taste them. Service was nice and friendly. After 6 days in Greece, I would definitely... More

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

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.
