Somehow you feel alone amongst a crowd of appreciative diners. This place is lovely. Start with a cheese plate with roasted veggies and follow it with fresh fish. The spinach is so yummy. The view from every seat under the trees with views of the city is so inviting. Ask for Sofia. She will spoil you! We went twice in... More

We asked a local were to go for good in the area and he recommended Psaras. The nice thing about arriving there was that the staff didn't try and 'force us' to try their food like many other restaurants around that area. Staff were nice and the traditional food was great.

Too salty and a bit of crunch ..I thought just from the mussel..but eating more I saw a whole heap of sand inside my stuffed squid... a bit dissapointed. The salmon dish was pretty good

We first visited this restaurant 4 years ago and took the time to find it again. We loved it so much we have been back twice in two weeks. The location high on the hill up some stairs overlooking the Plaka and Athens is amazing . Ou sit in the shadows if the Acropolis watching the sun cast it's magical... More

This taverna has consistently great taverna food minus all of the gimmicks you find near the intersection of Adrianou and Kidathinion streets. This place is quieter and nicer, and the food is great. Do ask about specials of the day, since they often have dishes not on the menu but definitely worth trying.

The restaurant has space in two or three adjacent buildings at the top of a hill in the Plaka district of Athens, with some terraces with lovely views. We dined at one of several outdoor tables. If you are looking for authentic Greek food standards (stuffed grape leaves, greek salad, taramasalata, moussaka, etc.), you'll find them here. Service was fine... More

Hotel style average food, served by mediocre waiters, but like so many restaurants, it's carried by the beautiful weather and lovely view. No locals = tourist trap

This is what you picture when you think about Greece. Great location near the Plaka. Really good view from the tables outside. You'll need to climb some stairs to get to the restaurant but it is worth it.

Food was good but some of starters I can comment - even vegeterians don't like this. Very specific halva - from my opinion - not tasty.

Look around at what others are eating (there are plenty of tables to check out) and see what appeals to you. The menu is big so there should be something for everybody, but the giant prawns were quite spectacular. Unless it's really cold out make sure you get a table outside even if you have to wait.
