Tavernas/restaurants in the touristy Plaka area sort of morph together. The menus look generic and the food is similar -- some above average, some below -- but most pretty predictable. This is where Mono stands out. By far the two best meals we had in Athens on our recent trip through Greece. On our first 3-day stay in Athens we... More

Menu included some "weird" food listings but having tried what seemed best to our eyes we were surprised by the taste. Reasonable prices as well and GREAT choice of wines both local and international. Definitely recommended !

We all enjoyed our food at Mono the day we had lunch, but were a little surprised by the small servings of the wine we ordered and paid a lot for that accompanied our meal. Also, their credit card machine connection was down and we were forced to pay with the only euros we had on us that day. Little... More

Fresh tuna with a twist. Peaceful romantic location. Excellent choice. Next to the Athens Cathedral. Next we will stroll through the Plaka.

We went here on a recommendation by a local and we're not disappointed. Well only because I couldn't eat everything. Cuisine is very modern Greek - Greek flavours in interesting combinations and we'll presented. Who knew chargrilled grapes would taste so nice alongside grilled cheese and honeycomb.

Easy to find on a small street just steps from the Metropolitan Church of Athens, this restaurant was our last dinner in Greece. The tables that spill out onto the sidewalk are the best in the house. Our wine selection was a Greek red Tempranillo – they have an excellent list of moderately priced wines. We shared a starter –... More

Very happy with Mono. Great food, very good wine from Greek producers and a very relaxed tavern-feeling. We had tuna, shrimps, sea food platter and lamb. All cooked perfectly and crispy. Accompanied by a very nice dry white greek wine from a knowing waitress. Not low on the price list, but very well worth it.

The part that was 5-star: They have a mussel dish called "Seafood in Love"...it was amazing!! The rest of the dinner was really good as well. Good wine selection. Excellent/friendly service. The best of our 3 dinners in Athens.
