Our meal was absolutely beautiful, with top quality ingredients, carful and innovative flavourings and personal , friendly service. By pass the tourist traps, spend the same and have the experience of a top quality meal in a quality, small restaurant. Get directions from your hotel, it's very central in Plaka.

We read about Mani Mani in the NYT and decided to give it a go. It is for foodies. Yes, it is on the second floor without a view, but that is not its point. Across all five of us, we had delicious appetizers and main courses; indeed we returned the next for a late lunch. Dessert and service were... More

While the food was good, it has no atmosphere, is up on the second floor with no outlook and really, cannot see why a tourist would patronise this location. Would be more suited to locals or expats living in Athens, not tourists.

I think this restaurant is considered on the expensive side for Athens but compared to anywhere else, not really so. We ate for EUR100, four people, including wine. it's really a very nice restaurant, nicely designed and the food was great. A nice respite from Greek Salad, Souvlaki, Moussaka, etc (but still Greek).

Our family of 4 ate here based on reviews from this site and from a local guide. Absolutely delicious! Casual atmosphere with creative food and presentation and well-priced. (We had a bottle of wine, 2 sodas, 2 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 4 desserts for about 130 euros.) Very friendly and attentive service. Recommend highly!

My wife,my mum and I had a wonderful meal here on a Thursday evening. The food is traditional Greek with a twist, but thankfully 'the twist' doesn't interfere with the enjoyment of the food, nor with the level of "Greekness" if you get my drift. We had a variety of starters, mains and dessert and they were without fail made... More

Lovely elegant restaurant on the first floor. Little bit outside of the central area. On the menu you'll find modern Greek dishes. I had mussels as a starter and Greek traditional pasta with mushrooms, truffle and porc filet. My partner had as a starter a very nice dish with meat and porc filet mignon. As desert we shared a modern... More

This place gets a lot of praise from travel guides and deservedly so - it's beautifully designed and the food stands up. The only thing I would say is that the food didn't BLOW me away but that may be a result of too high expectations as a result of all the press. It's still a great place to go... More

I simply love this place. Very pleasantly decorated tavern (simple but elegant), sincere and friendly service. Very "well thought" Greek cuisine on the basis of excellent first ingredients and enriched with fresh spices beautifully combined. Unlike the general expectation that Greek food is rather heavy, each plate in Mani Mani is a pleasant surprise, healthy, properly cooked. What is also... More

Having read the reviews, we decided to visit Mani Mani for dinner. We reserved a table, followed our map and found the restaurant fairly easily. The restaurant, on the first floor, is cosy and inviting. We were pleased we had booked as the restaurant was full (on a Tuesday evening in March). The modern Greek food was excellent - delicious...

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.
