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

A lot of people had warned us against dining in Plaka but as it was such a short walk from our hotel we took the chance. My husband and I both had fish for our mains, carpaccio & fried white cheese for starter and shared the pavlova for dessert...we were extremely impressed by all the dishes. To sum it up...Ambience...

We read all of the great reviews and came to Mono for dinner. We arrived without a reservation around 8pm and were lucky to have gotten seated as most of the tables were all marked "reserved". We got the couscous salad which was absolutely delicious. For mains, we got the risotto with watermelon, feta and pine nits and the pork... More

This is the only place I could find in Athens to relax and enjoy good food and good wine. Most of the places are the type of place which hunt down the tourist then give them typical tourist food that is not value for money. The Mono is different, the food is great as is the wine list and service.

I ordered risotto with watermelon, pine nuts and feta cheese, and I wanted to cry when my plate was empty. seriously, it was that good.... More

MONO was suggested from another restaurant owner and it was worthy a lot. All the food plates selection were interesting (to say the least), showing real interest for their job. Company tasted a lot of plates and all were really good; European taste with a personal touch which made the difference. What really surprised me was the wine list, which... More

This place was recommended to us by a local (our Airbnb host) and so we had high expectations and weren't disappointed. The wine list has a great representation of Greek wines and some interesting international wines. We had a Santorini Chardonnay and a delicious Greek red wine that paired well with the lamb dish. The Village Salad was the definite... More
