I'm going to join in the general acclamation for this great restaurant and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful culinary experience. It offers a unique and excellent take on one of Greece's regional cuisines that went well beyond my already high expectations. Everything was perfect. Of course it all comes down to the food and my first... More

This is the place to go when you start of getting sick of touristy restaurants in the Plaka area. We got this restaurant through recommendation of a taxi driver and the hotel. The meals give a modern twist on traditional Greek food. Super fresh ingredients. We shared mussels as the starter. The broth was incredible. Then, we followed up with... More

My husband and I shared a half order of the Mani Mani salad and a half order of the ravioli to begin, yummy. I had the lamb and he had the veal meatballs. Both were very good but the meatball dish was exceptional.

We had an absolutely wonderful meal at Mani Mani, a contemporary restaurant tucked one floor up from the street in an old building just blocks from the Acropolis Museum. The restaurant menu is creative yet also draws on Greece's rich culinary tradition. Although not our least expensive meal in Athens, the restaurant is moderately priced for the level of food...

I started with the veloute soup with mushrooms. Rich 'shroom flavour but comparable to what I've had in other restaurants The brusketa with eggplant cream was nice as well, a tasty morsel where the eggplant and goat cream paired well. The sweet green salad, the dish I was most excited for... was OK. The nivato, a traditional Greek cream cheese,... More

I gave this restaurant a really good review two years ago but it has become even better now and I feel the need to update my comments. We had dinner here two evenings in succession. The food is really brilliant. The Mani Mani salad is excellent. The four main dishes we had across the two evenings were the pork belly,... More

The setting is modern with a good atmosphere. Food is excellent, a level above most of the traditional restaurants in the area, which is close to the Acropolis museum. Staff are very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Good value given the quality of the dishes.

Manh Manh was featured in the "36 Hours in Athens" segment of the NY Times earlier this year. After cross-referencing it with the glowing Tripadvisor reviews, we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. The restaurant is very popular and busy not only with tourists but with locals, as well. When we asked the concierge... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
