They have excellent service and magnificent food in a very romantic atmosphere. I visit greece every year in christmas and new year, and every time I like to go to dine here. You can enter the kitchen to choose your fish and to tell chef the way you like to cook your food. Excellent Excellent Excellent

With directions in hand, we searched for this restaurant. We were well warned. that you need to twist and turn at the end and then head up a quaint alley way Well it was worth it! Our dining room was on a rooftop overlooking the hills of Athens. The waitstaff was warm and charming and quite used to taking guest... More

We learned that "Psaras" means fishermen in Greek. This well known restaurant in the heart of the Plaka district at the foot of the Acropolis lives up to its name with simple but tasty fish dishes. It is quite affordable, too.

Our hotel recommended this place and we were not disappointed. It was bit challenging to find, but worth the walk. I'd probably go 4*, but the quality of the food, and the nice outdoor seating on veranda with a nice view even at night tip it 5*.

The food was excellent squid to start followed by the special if Lamb baked with green vegetable this was very good. All round excellent Resturant will... More

This is one of the top 10 best restaurants that Daily Telegraph recommended. We went there and had the best traditional Greek meal! The owner and waiter were the most charming men in Plaka, suggested few lovely seafood dishes and they were absolutely delicious! Many local people told us that they love the restaurant too so it was definitely a... More

Very traditional restaurant about 500m from the Acropolis in the very picturesque area of Plaka. 13 of us had booked for lunch and we were very glad we did. Even in early November, we were able to eat outside on the roof terrace which just added to the occasion. We had a meze to start, hot and cold dishes all... More

This restaurant is in a brilliant location at the foot of the Acropolis Hill and it has a lovely vibe. We had starters of baked feta & tomato and fava beans, both were tasty along with the delicious bread they serve here in Greece. For main course, my boyfriend was pushed towards the beef special of the day instead of... 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.
