Where locals eat too

After shopping for some jewelry at Dimos Jewelry (unique pieces by the way), I was taken here by a local friend. I took a look at the menu and actually deferred to my host to order. Our first course was a sort of tuna tartar with an exceptional wasabi sauce (really exotic looking color to it) and a... read more

Found this place on tripadvisor, it was near our hotel and had good reviews. We had dinner and it was fantastic. Food was delicious, modern and cooked by someone who knows what they're doing and the setting is great. The service was great, really friendly; recommended us a great bottle of wine. I will go back here next time I'm... More

Athens is not just ruins. Athens also has a lot of excellent chef's and Mono Restaurant's is excellent one, to be in a top ten is fine but 1 star michelin will be marvelous for Vasilis Vasiliou and his team.

We had dinner at this restaurant 3 nights while staying in the Plaka area of Athens. We kept returning because the food and service was that good. Each meal we chose an appetizer, salad and two entrees. We chose different items each time and were impressed with each selection. Our server was Giota and we would like to give a... More

We had a fantastic meal at Mono - the place to go if you're sick of bland international food or 'traditional' Greek food in the Plaka. Modern cuisine, fantastic service and reasonable prices. Our waitress was kind enough to give us some recommendations for restaurants in Santorini for later on our trip, we also got some complimentary mastic liqueur after... More

Delicious, straightforward food served in a beautiful setting. First class, friendly service. The seafood appetizers tend to be the real stars of the menu. Lovely wine list.

On a recent visit to this restaurant on a Saturday night a little before 9 PM the restaurant was devoid of customers, we were a party of two without reservations. The table settings were being completed with cloth napkins, for some peculiar reason we were the only table to be given paper napkins. We brought this matter to the attention... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
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.
