Great location, service and food

We were staying in Plaka and this restaurant was very conveniently located for us; not to mention that it is surrounded by little boutiques and bars, but is not in one of the busier streets, so it is also very relaxing and... read more

The Restaurant exists for some years in the centre of Athens. The Menu changes often. Service is quite good. It mainly serves Mediterranean cuisine. Overall it is worth visiting it.

Nice food in the center of Athens. We tried the risoto with water mellon ( excellent) and the chicken (ok). Nice taste with an excellent wine menu! If you are passing through the Metrpole church you should try it!

A beautiful option in Plaka in a quiet street. The french chef worked in 2 Michelin star restaurants in Paris. So you can have a perfect cuisine for the reasonable greek price.

We enjoyed a meal at Mono during our visit to Athens. The meal was delicious. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The items on the menu are created with fresh and perfectly prepared ingredients. The food is beautifully presented. We found the menu to have some unexpected but smart and modern twists on familiar items, for example the stuffed grape leaves... More

After reading many reviews, we decided in Mono for our last dinner in Athens. It did not disappoint! The restaurant is set on an unassuming side street in the Plaka area. The decor inside is refined and there is ample outdoor seating available. We had a reservation made through our hotel and were seated right away. The food was impeccable... More

Booked a table for 4 at this restaurant during our recent visit. The meal was definitely a highlight of our time in Athens. Whilst the menu does not always read well - not quite sure why not - the food is truly outstanding, cutting edge but very tasty. Between us we tried a good range of starters, main courses and...

Lovely little restaurant on a quiet side street, I got the sea bream which was cooked amazingly, partner got the chicken which was recommended and very nice. Waitress with the short blonde hair was very friendly and accommodating. Pricey but worth it if your in the area and have the time.

We wondered through the streets looking for something other than Gyros and came across this place hidden away. The staff were helpful & friendly and the food was high quality & different to that in the surrounding area. The prices are a little high for some but you get what you pay for. Give it a go if you can... 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.
