This place was our favorite dinner in Athens. The host was so kind. It really made you experience that famous Greek hospitality. I had stuffed peppers and saganaki - both were incredible. We drank too and had a phenomenal meal for under fifty euro. It is near monasteraki, so live music is all around you. Will be going back!

Nice restaurant near the Acropolis, huge plates, live music, good prices. They were very helpful with my son who is coeliac and needs to eat gluten free... He ate an excellent dish of lamb with potatoes, they were very careful an suggesting what he could eat and he had not problems at all. I recommend it

We were looking for somewhere to grab a drink and an evening meal. We were simply taken by the greeter. Excellent persona. Didn't push once. Showed us dishes and explained every thing. The meal we had was the meat sharing platter small. It was great. The beer is cold and the food is super. It's a well deserved 5 from... 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.
