2 min walk to the Acropolis - Ancient Agora exit. Other side Monastiraki square is only less than a min walk. This restaurant is right where it is needed. After a long walk in Acropolis-Agora or streets of Plaka you'll end up in Adrianou Street. One of the "must" areas in Athens. Adrianou is full of restaurant bar and cafes.... More

You get stopped by an ipad guy, who offers the menue in every language, nice seating outside under gas heaters, good typical live music, average good food, a little bit pricey, but ok for the area. Might come back there.

We ate here because of the reviews on trip advisor, and weren't disappointed. The atmosphere and music were just as described, and the portions are definitely on the large side! A plate of delicious bread arrived on the table very quickly, but the service was a bit lacking after that. We had a salad and a chicken souvlaki with beer... More

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

My daughter and I vacationed in Athens a couple weeks ago and ate at the Efxaris the 2nd night we were there and went back the remaining nights of our stay. It is in a great location at Monasteriki. The food was delicious...I tried something different every night and it was all good. I recommend the grilled lamb. The plates... More

On a beautiful street in an very charming area in Monasteriki. Wine, food, dessert all very good. They have a dessert wine that is really good. Supposedly you can only get it there. Live music playing added to the atmosphere. Prices were very low as well.

We read the reviews and, while this was on a touristy street and seemed counter-intuitive, decided that this place must be amazing. We'd ate stunning food in Athens already so gave this a try. The first waiter met us on the street and was super charismatic, but as soon as we sat down he disappeared and from then on we... More

Warm friendly welcome, live music, great atmosphere and fantastic food! both me and my partner had... More
