Came across Mono on 'the top 10' restaurants in Plaka. Came late in the day and they were very accomodating. Lovely food, really good service, nice atmosphere, good location (off the beaten track). Would recommend it...slightly expensive for 2 (50 euros for bread, mains, pudding and wine) but was worth it as delicious, and pretty much the same prices you'll... More

the restaurant is located a few meters away from the old Athens cathedral (still refurbished after suffering large damages in the 1999 earthquake that hit the city). it is on the entrance to the old city (Plaka) and having said that you can easily combine a lunch or dinner at Mono with a nice stroll afterwards. now the food is...

Tasting this is a must for everyone ! When food becomes art then they are no words . When a simple mushroom stays in your pallet for 48 hours then there is no mistake. Thumps up. Very pleased and unforgettable food. Excellent wine list . Cool people ! Don't skip !

Everytime we go to Athens we aways come to Mono. The first time we came there we had been searching for a restaurant not serving the usual food you find everywhere else - and have we found it! Dont miss out on their wonderful salads.

Located in central Athens, near the Monastiraki section, this is a lovely restaurant. There dishes are exceptional and very creative, and their wine selection excellent. The foie gras is their specialty. I had the rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection. I should also mention that the service was wonderful, and the atmosphere lively.

We booked the New Years Eve 5 course dinner in this restaurant and were so much looking forward to this. The menu looked amazing and we really liked the idea of the wine pairing which sounded amazing. The dinner started really well and we liked the first two courses very much. We asked to slow down as the food came... More

There are many similar restaurants in Athens, especially in this touristy part of the town, close to Syntagma, Plaka and the Akropolis, but this one stands out from the crowd! Innovative dishes, fun atmosphere, quality food and above all exceptional service. The chef was able to accommodate our specific dietary requirements without any compromise on the overall concept and the... More

A very modern take on Greek cuisine. The restaurant was actually recommended to us by another restaurant owner which is a major compliment. Very extensive wine list from allover Greece offered by the glass and bottle. Our seafood entrees were well prepared and presented. I wish I could remember the name of the vineyard from Santorini that we enjoyed the... More

We were getting a little tired of traditional Greek food (which we love) after a week in Athens and decided to have something different. Mono was recommended to us as a Greek food with a twist. Their menu has a nice mix of seafood, meats and poultry ("fat duck" appetizer was out of this world). The food was wonderful, presentation... More
