We were advised by locals to dine at Mono. We sat at a lovely table on the pavement but surrounded by plants and greenery. Service was attentive with excellent advice. We shared a variety of dishes and much of the cooking was highly original. Mono is also a wine bar and we drank some of the best and most interesting... More

we were staying at Elektra palace hotel and had just one night in Athens, so we were looking for something nearby in the Plaka. I found this spot on tripadvisor and was very pleasantly surprised! We were able to get a nice table at the edge of the patio, just inside the restaurant. They were incredibly accommodating and made some... More

8 of us went for lunch during the week. The highlight was the food. It was creative and delicious. The tuna salad was incredible. The service lacked as they seemed like they were doing you a favor by waiting on you but it was typical of the service that I found in Athens.

If you are looking for something different away from the touristy eateries in Plaka this is the place. Food was exceptional the quality of produce and the combinations were amazing, the desserts to die for and the staff were helpful and attentive. Topped of with beautiful wine a very romantic evening. Our sincerest compliments to the chefs and owners.

We went on a team dinner. We were offered a very good choice of local and modern starters to share, the salads were specially nice. I had fresh tuna as a main course, which was the most popular option for everybody!. They helped us with the wine, and it was a complete success. Price (including a very nice white from... More

I had lunch on the last Sunday of September, upon arrival we were the only couple of the restaurant (1:30pm) but soon after there were 5 more tables with people. I was truly surprised by the Tuna Tartar (its truly a good one) and the amazing duck and foie. The service was also incredible. I consider myself a foodie and... More

We arrived to an empty restaurant and still we got the worst table next to the entrance (quite cold outside) . "Everything is reserved" - said the owner. After 2h just another table was occupied. The price of the food was the double of the top restaurants in Trip Advisor in Athens, but the quantity was the half. Some older... More

We ate at Mono last night and the food was great. All the dishes from entrée, main and desert where delicious! In particular the village grilled hard cheese with honey and balsamic grapes, the green essence salad and the duck entree! Although all of it was delicious and it is hard too choose favorites! The wine list is also great,... More

This spot is located off a more secluded street in the Plaka. The wine was very good and reasonably priced and our food was fantastic. Get the fried cheese with honey and grapes with balsamic. It was a unique and upscale take on Saganaki and was one of our favorite dishes from our trip. We also got the salmon and... More

Our first dinner in a return trip to Athens, and we were intrigued by the opportunity to try a variety of Greek wines by the glass. The hostess made sure we were not disappointed as she thoughtfully suggested pairings with our menu selections. The "Farm to Table" menu made it hard to choose but the fried cheese in the My... More
