Managed to find this cloistered taverna in the dark evening, thanks to the lighted signboards. The waiting staff were helpful and obliging. Showed us to the kitchen to view the fish we were going to order for the grill. They were also very friendly to the kids, making then feel entirely at home and allowing a change to fries on... More

This is a Plaka restaurant that has stood the test of time since 1898. My husband was there 18 years ago for business lunches and dinners and said Psaras (The Old Tavern) has still retained its top quality to this day. During this Athens visit my husband’s Greek business partner recommended Psaras (spelling on business card and TA vary), so... More

Tipycal greek taverna in a tiny alley in the heart of Plaka. Dine outside is much better than a table in one of the indoor crowded rooms. Live music, suggestive atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Good value for money. Thanks!

We ate here twice in our week in Athens, once for lunch and once for dinner. Service was very good both times. The grilled vegetables for lunch were outstanding, at dinner the mains were not really inspired and were overcooked but entirely adequate. This place is hard to find, just don't get frustrated, the location is great once you get... More

We had one night in Athens at the end of our hols and stumbled across this place on a Sunday Night. There were loads of different outside terraces to sit on outside. There are also loads of waiters who look after several tables which was needed because the place was heaving. Despite that our service was great, as was the... More

A great place to eat. A shop owner recommended this restaurant and we had lunch after sightseeing.it is quite hard to find but we'll worth it with good honest Greek food and a nice vibe with prompt service.

This restaurant has nice scenic view on Athens. A big problem about this restaurant is the value (66 euros for a kg of fish).

Very friendly waitstaff, lovely food, and an incredible view. The perfect spot to stop off for some traditional Greek food when sightseeing near the acropolis.

A sprawling restaurant which must be crazy in the summer but was nice and quietish in mid-October. Our Greek friends took us there and we dined at night under the Acropolis on the upstairs terrace. Food was excellent and service prompt but unintrusive. We liked it so much we returned for lunch the next day. Not on the main Plaka... More

We had lunch here with friends last week, while touring Athen's and it was really enjoyable. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is great. Talk about a way to take a break, relax, have a wonderful meal and get away from the hectic pace of Athen's. If your in Athen's and your can find your way here, you'll really... More
