Great food, authentic taverna, dodgy hood

Food was great value, fresh and the restaurant has a very atmosphere lively. its very close to the touristy parts of south Plaka, i.e. Monastiraki but it is definitely a more downtrodden part of town. It makes Omonia look saintly. With that said, It is superb money for value - good taverna fare... read more

Although the restaurant was packed with tourists when we arrived and the staff was swift and friendly; We just didnt like the food. We ordered 6 different dishes but none of it was to our taste. Our advice: If you like Greek food, go to Marin or Etsi Apla in that area.

Old fashion caracterist Greek tavern, with tasty dishes, big portions and reasonable prices. Close to monastiraki metro station but difficult to reach if you do not use a map. Try

We were told to go there by the hotels receptionist - finally it was the best restaurant in 5 days in Athens. When I saw on the name table on the street "since 1927" I knew we are on good place. Furthermore it was filled with local greek people. The interior is original and friendly. I eat boiled lamb shank... More

Pleasant interior. Quick service, but maybe too quick as my friends meal wasn't very hot. The food was quite tasty and portions generous. Unfortunately smoking was allowed and as the numbers of smokers increased the atmosphere became saturated with smoke. It was an unpleasant experience after 5 years of dining in smoke free restaurants.

I went here for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon n I'm told I was lucky to find myself a table. Maria welcomed us in and invited us to see what is cooking. everything looked delicious and smelled awesome. And once she opened the lid over the slow cooked pork the smell made me ravenous. The portion was big n it... More

A yard full of food and wine. They serve also less known Greek food which looks weird but tastes divine. We happened to be there the first customers of the day and yet everyone was friendly and polite. I heard that reservations required for the afternoons..

The food is wonderful. The bread is handmade and its smell can catch you from the streets around. The meat just melts in your mouth and it offers a lot of vegeterian plates. Optimous liquor. The price is so low you could think they had mistaken with the bill. Never been in a better tavern.

We arrived and picked our table within view of the band! We ordered soda, beer, wine, grilled Feta, lamb, chicken and stuffed Calamari.. All the food was good. Service was prompt and friendly..the band was wonderful. The only reason I Would hesitate is that it is a smoking restaurant and did not realize this prior to going with my four... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighborhood Profile
Omonia
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
