We went to Psaras as last lunch of our holiday. The food was typical without being too much for tourists ( many Greek guests in the dining room). It's well located in the Plaka area and in summer the verandah must me pretty! We would go back.

Off the beaten track in an oldy-worldly type mini village. Great restaurant, open fire, lovely staff and great food! Well worth a visit on your way back from the Acropolis!

We visited this charming tavern after reading reviews on trip advisor. We turned up and were accommodated without a reservation and I'm very glad that we were! The food was hearty and delicious, the waiter was friendly, amusing and made good recommendations and the price was really good! Believe the reviews this place is great!

We were recommended to this place by the hotel and were not disappointed. While it is in the Plaka shopping area, it is not on the main shopping streets, so you will have to walk a bit off the beaten path the get here. Set upon a hill, it has great views and is nice and sunny. We had 8... More

Enjoyed very much the restaurant. It's a little expensive for what it is but location and place is very nice with friendly service. Starters were the best, as always in Greek restaurants.

I ordered a garoupa, which was disappointing as it wasn't fresh and was overlooked. Everything we ordered felt like the chef was very heavy handed on the salt. Disappointing.

The first good thing about this tavern is the view. In Athens where sun shines most days seating in this taverna and looking at Athens old and new is a very pleasant way to enjoy the mainly Greek cooking of this taverna. They serve most Greek dishes well cooked with efficient service and some grills are available including fish. The... More

After a walk at the nice area of Plaka in Athens, it is a good choice to stop for sea food and some wine drinking.
