Very good food, very good prices!

We had the meat platter for two and it was delicious! Their was a lot of food and at a very good price (17 euro). They treated us to drinks (a bottle of water and 0,5L wine carafe) and dessert! Very nicely decorated place, very nice location also! The only downside is that they allowed smoking... read more

My wife and I were stopped and pulled into this restaurant when we arrived to Athens. We sat outside, while a traditional Greek band played inside. The staff was nice and our meals were served quickly. We ordered the Greek salad, the cheese plate (GREAT), eggplant (freezing cold), tzatziki (fantastic - so much better than the way the serve in...

My sister and i were walking around and i recognised the photo from Tripadvisor and decided to have our lunch here. We ordered Saganaki, small Seafood Platter and Traditional Roast Lamb. We ended up finishing our Roast Lamb first and were too full for the seafood. The seafood portion is really huge for us. We ended up having it to... More

We went in there to escape the snow, yes it DID snow in Athens February 10th! And we were glad we picked this restaurant. Lovely decoration, good food, and I particularly fell in love with the beautiful artistic paper place mats they had. So much that the waiter gave me 5 of them with different drawings! And now they are... More

This is a restaurant in a touristy area, even though locals use it. The food is correct, but do not expect anything creative or of higher quality in terms of taste. It is average good, but not great. It does the trick for an unpretentious lunch in Athens. The portions are generous, so you can share. The prices are OK,... More

Our cruise ship was docked near Athens one day in late Sept 2014, and we were a group of 10 on a long, hot Athens semi private tour. We had survived the 100 degree heat on the brutal climb up to the Acropolis, and to many other wonderful sites. Our tour guide brought us to this area for a break... More

Efcharis in ancient Greek means that which is pleasing or what pleases.A very good variety of breakfasts,coffee,juices,snacks,authentic Greek and Mediterranean cuisine and house wine are always ready for you.Staff is very friendly and really fast.They also have Turkish menu.This is one of the good options in the centre to eat all day long at reasonable price level.

Once we discovered this place we didn't go anywhere else. Delicious food, huge portions, good house wine and they are generous when it comes to giving free cake, ouzo and Raki! Excellent value for money. Great atmosphere. Clientele mainly Greek - we were the only foreigners every night. Different band playing Greek music every night. Locals singing and up dancing.... More

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
Monastiraki
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
