If moaning in pleasure after each bite can describe my experience, this is how I would characterise Mono Restaurant!!

The restaurant is located conveniently next to the Athens Cathedral. It offers a variety of modern Greek cuisine of an average taste. You will not stay hungry but you will not feel excited either. The service was polite and helpful, the wine list is good.

Just visiting Athens and decided to go for something different! The restaurant has a nice minimal design relaxing to the eye, the service is very friendly with suggestions to help you decide what's the best plate or wine for you! You can pay using card (read at previous comments it wasn't possible) Recommend it if you want to try different... More

We really enjoyed dinner at Mono while on our honeymoon in late September! They were closing early that night, which we didn't know, so there was only 1 or 2 other parties there. We sat outside, in the alleyway, and were never rushed even though we were the last to leave! Everything we ordered was interesting and delicious, but the... More

No one here when I was there, very nice lunch, ordered the chicken and very Japanese style, they put the soup into the chicken in front of you, nice small restaurant and good service too.

We've been here before. This time was even better. We were with a couple of friends and all the plates were tastefull. Also the winelist, for a large part Greek wines, is good and the chosen wines very nice. Friendly staff who know about wines and food.

So we found this place on a list of top restaurants in the Plaka and made a point of finding it... It looks closed. No one seated outside and we couldn't tell if it was open. It was. We sat outside to take advantage of the sun and discovered that service is greatly lacking at this restaurant. We felt like... More

Red the reviews and wanted to check it out, it was a bit hard to find as it doesn't look like a restaurant, but rather a canteen like front, but once seated inside you quickly find that this is a nice place, if you like the decor. The food was artistic and filled with aroma and art, like an expensive... More

This restaurant is not a typical Greek taverna. It serves very unusual and original combinations of food. It is quite expensive so don't go here if you are looking for a cheap Greek meal. If you want something which is original and really good quality then this place is a real treat. A really extensive and good quality wine list.... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
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.
