You pay for the nice atmosphere and pretty surroundings. The food is standard tourist fare and the wine nothing to write home about, but if you want the real Greek experience of service with a snarl this is the place to go to.

There is nothing special in this restaurant, except the location. It is located in a traditional area of Athens,named Plaka and that is all.The prices are high enough according the quality and the quantity of the portions.The service is good.We do not suggest this restaurant for Greek people.They can find to eat better and cheaper.

Top marks for the setting and ambience!! Sooo wonderful to either dine inside or sit outside on the terrace. It's located on supposedly the most romantic lane in Athens. Service was wonderful. Dishes were very tasty except for the squid stuffed risotto - slightly on the salty side. I left my water bottle and they had it waiting for me... More

This was recommended by our hotel but it was expensive for the quality but the ambiance was OK. Like many other Greek restaurants, smoking was allowed.

Of all the meals I had in Athens, this was by far the best. Excellent food, attentive service and beautiful surroundings. The bread was thick and crusty, the roasted feta was a perfect blend of salt and creaminess, the eggplant was perfected roasted, not a trace of bitterness. A lively location to watch pedestrians stroll by or look over the... More

Said to be the oldest tavern in the Plaka area of Athens, and certainly located in a very picturesque old stone building, Psarra offers good quality taverna food, in a lovely location between the Acropolis and the Plaka. The location fits right into a visit of both if you are visiting Athens to see the sights. And the actual location... More

We sat at the top of a set of steps on the slope of the acropolis in the evening, which was a truly gorgeous atmosphere. It's fairly pricey if you're on a budget but it's very worth it. The food was delicious and we paid 10 euros for a litre jug of house wine which was really nice. Main courses... More

My wife and I planned dinner here but accidentally stumbled upon it for lunch first. The wine is pretty great, and the food screams great Mediterranean. The service is above average but not great. Overall very recommended.

Delicious fresh fish (slightly pricey, but I expected that in a restaurant basically made to attract tourists). Lots of tables (I could still imagine it may be difficult to find a seat during high season) and very beautiful atmosphere. The waiters were slightly grumpy, but I have learnt to expect that from a lot of waiters dealing with tourist all... More
