Urban Myth (on the good side)

Very few people know the story (or history) behind this place, but in any case this is probably one of the few original Athenian eateries left. The food is the way it should be, so is the wine and so is the atmosphere. If you would like to be indulged in the folk culture of an Athens that is now... read more

The place is located in an isolated area from the city center. The music begins at 11, so if you go for dinner at 8 you have to be very patient. Recommended to arrive as late as possible. The food ok.

I am afraid the overall rating for this restaurant is not reflective of its current performance. The people are nice, the prices are inexpensive for the size of the portions one gets, but the quality of the food is definitely sub-par and the location is pretty sketchy for going there in the evening. Also, from the point I entered until... More

If you grew up with a mom who was a great cook, especially a Greek one, then you won't find anything exceptional here. We went at 8:30 pm on a Monday night. We were the third table to arrive. I'm sure if you are there when they have entertainment that it adds to the experience. And the more free rounds... More

We chose the place for the live music which was indeed great. The food was pretty good too, though a bit expensive for such portions. Service was ok but when they try to fit in more tables than the place can hold there's obviously a problem. Still, we had a good time.

The food was terrible. There were to many tables for the place. The service was ok. The other reviews talk about music and singing, well for us the sound was on, but nothing was played, so we heard a humming noice the whole evening.

They have a generous appetizer. I order the eggplant salad-frilled eggs mixed with parsley, onion and lemon and something else, it turns out too salty. Main course is the lamb cooked in wood-fired oven with baked potato, presentation is classic with delicious looks; nevertheless, lamb is too salty and I don't even try the potato. Greek beer is great. Atmostphere... More

We had a great experience at Taverna klimataria with amazing food, live music and kind service. We could even make a reservation over email so we could be sure to get a seat, and check the live music show time. We had so much fun we came back again, despite our busy schedule. Hoping to visit there again!

I visited this Taverna twice via Athens Walking Tours, once was for a Greek evening with music and food and the second was a Greek cooking workshop. This was hosted by Maria, the owner of thisTaverna and I reckion she is a jewel of Athens. Had a fantastic time here and would thoroughly recommend it, to someone if you fancy... More

We had two dinners at that place, it means we came back for the second time for the wonderful food and service. The place is a bit messy and old, but good cooked food and friendly service can compensate for anything that you may not like in the deccor. Don't miss the salads and oven baked lamb
