Good introduction to Greek kitchen

Nice little restaurant in the Plaka area. Serves excellent Greek food with a good card to choose from. Very good service and reasonable prices. Good Ouzo :-)

Visited this restaurant last night at 10pm on the recommendation of a local friend. It was one of only 3 dinners we will have in Athens and Greece so we wanted it to be good. The place was very busy and we took a nice table on the rooftop. There are good views of the Acropolis and a 360 panorama... More

We had 8 people, on a busy Athens night, for dinner. While this waiter wasn't the warmest I've encountered, he was certainly competent, and was able to bring all the ordered items without a hitch. The food itself was good, very representative of typical Greek restaurants that serve traditional food. We did enjoy the feta Saganaki, as well as calamari... More

Rewind a few years back and we came upon this gem from a local's recommendation. The food was tasty and service was excellent. Fast forward to 2015 I brought my husband to relive the joy of finding this hidden gem and left greatly disappointed. Abysmal service: We were greeted with a curt younger waiter asking what do we want. I... More

Came here for the history (founded in 1898). As the oldest restaurant in the Plaka area (also known as Fisherman's Taverna), this restaurant has served some famous personalities like Laurence Olivier. It occupies two mansions, with an outdoor eating area. A beautiful place and beautiful food to end a day in Athens.

Called in on spec having read some good reviews. The place is large and spread out over many levels and a bit hard to find but it is very atmospheric and well worth the effort. Initially went up to roof terrace but actually preferred another location - just down by the steps - so moved there instead. Some good food... More

Food was ok, service slightly less so , but very Greek never the less , not impressed by very arrogant Greek/Aussie manager type, who thought he was doing us a favour by talking to us . Careful when choosing fish dishes as can be expensive. If you really want fish , ask your taxi driver to take you to Piraeus... More

We came at the suggestion of our concierge and were pleased they could take our large group without a reservation, but service was slow, sloppy (mistakes in orders, things that never came) and food wasn't always exactly as described in the menu. We ordered fries with greek cheese, and they came out bare, when we asked they brought a ramekin... 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.
