On the street less travelled....

On a quiet side street near the cathedral, away from the throngs of tourists around Monasteraki square is Mono. A small place with lovingly prepared to order food, a most welcome respite from standard menus.

Went to this restaurant because of the reviews. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy the food. We thought it was overpriced for what it was. So many other great restaurants in Plaka

The menu is tantalisingly imaginative and the food and wine matches these expectations. The dishes consist of unique combinations of high quality ingredients which are perfectly prepared and presented. The young, attentive staff are well matched to the amazing food. They are knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. They go out of their way to ensure that diners have a wonderful meal.... More

I ate lunch there after going to the Acropolis. Fish and salad was very tasty with great design that makes everything look so gourmet. The service was regular but good wifi.

We've been to this restaurant in 2012 and 2013 and both times, the food, service, price and ambience were perfect. When we visited again this year, the 1st impression was bad: the blond short hair head waitress did not smile at all. She put on a bit of smile only when we explained that we had eaten there before and... More

Last evening of a 12 days long holiday. Leaving to Sweden tomorrow and a bit tired of Greek salad and Taramasalata...Passed by Monastiraky - so many tourists and so uninspiring food offered. My wife "required" a restaurant with tables without plastic coverings and with a wine list. That's too much to ask in this area of Athens...😑 And suddenly we... More

We went to Mono on our first evening in Athens and were very positively surprised. Vassili, Giota and her team were very kind and attentive and gave us good recommendations on the food and wine. The food was extremely delicious: a delicate choice of aromas made each course a unique experience. Particularly recommended: Fat duck and sea vs citrus for... More

This restaurant was one of the best restaurants I've been to. There was not one dish that we ordered that we didn't find amazing. Everything offered on the menu had a creative and unique twist - like the red tuna with wasabi caramelized watermelon - that made dining here a great experience. This restaurant is highly recommended and is worth... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
