Just had the most lovely meal at this restaurant on the last night of our vacation. It was easily the best meal we had on our 10 day vacation to Greece. The food was creative and delicious & the service was phenomenal. We shared a salad and two appetizers and had steak & chicken as main courses plus a wonderful... More

I tried several restaurants in the area, and this one was the best. I had fried cheese from mytilene as starter and lamb as main dish. Both very good, specially the cheese. I had read in this page several complains about the service, but for me it was ok.

This is a find,and exceptionally easy to do so .Just steps off Syntagma Square this 3 year old establishment exceeds your expectations. I love Greek,food,Mediterranean food,and all that accompanies it. BUT this restaurant is new Greek cuisine. A much updated fusion or Greek nuvo that will satiate your palate to a new high. Clean and receptive the staff welcomes you... More

Absolutely amazing place. This is great modern Greek food. We had the fried cheese and honeycomb to start which was a great twist on the classic combination. The Homemade Pasta for the main tasted incredible even though it sounded basic. Atmosphere was nice on the pavement in the evening and staff were very helpful.

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.
