My wife and I ate at this restaurant on the night of August 28, 2014. The meal was very good, the waiters very attentive, and the atmosphere outside on the balcony lovely.. Then the bill came. I had mentally added the approximate bill in my head. I never worry if the actual bill is a few euro/s higher. However, this... More

The food was just awful in this restaurant! We ordered fish and steamed vegetables and the food, especially the vegetables, didn't taste like anything. We complained about the quality of the food but the staff didn't seem to understand or care. The price (14€) was ridicilous considering the quality of the food so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

The positives: The location is actally very nice, the restaurant has several levels, each offers a very nice view of Athens. Thats it for the positives. The negatives, most importantly, the waiter that attended to us was extremely rude, short in his responses and abrupt. We were seated in the roof top area of the restaurant. We immediately realized that... More

I went here for dinner with my Aunt and Uncle who are from Athens. My hotel had recommended it as well as well as their 40 year old son - who said it was one of the top places to eat in Plaka. We were not disappointed. The food was good - it is a taverna so I wasn't expecting... More

Walking thru the steep and beautiful streets of Plakka the old tavern really caught our eye. After a bit of miscommunication with the old waiter we had a good time. The main dishes weren't that big for the money you pay but tasted very good.

Table of eight - two families with older teenagers enjoyed a great dinner here. By this time we were "gastronomes" of Greek "typical" food having eaten seven days on the bounce but this was by far and away the best. Excellent vegetable dishes and fish. Well worth booking a table on the the roof top terrace.

In 2002 this restaurant cared for its service and quality of food. We gave it a chance every year as we brought small groups to Athens for the last 12 years. In 2013 and again this year, we made reservations almost 1 year in advance with their consortium and told we would have roof terrace access, unfortunately both time, that... More

Tou Psara was recommended to us by a local, and it was good enough to visit two days in a row for lunch. Food was tasty (we wouldn't say amazing, but it was a good tasty lunch), location great - a tiny sort of square on the stairs in the backstreets of the old town. Secluded and pretty. A very... More

That restaurant was recommended by guide books, in the internet with the best reviews. I actually tried it on the winter but the food was not fresh. Precooked somedays before and frozen. I assumed that was probably because Plaka was not that busy. I went back in August with some friends when Plaka is on its highest and assumed that... More

We had a nice holiday lunch here on a Saturday during the height of tourist season in July. This was an outdoor casual lunch place at the top of stairs from the street (upwards from the Melina Mercouri restaurant), so we did not have the roof top views reported by evening diners, although we did see that related venue nearby....
