Nice environment- a place that you see how Greeks enjoy the food with music. Very good service, even the place is really crowded. The food: nothing special but nice. Some of the dishes are really salty.

The free tsatsiki is really salty, we guess so you get more thirsty. Free live music inside. There was a power outage twice lol. The food was good, especially the lamb and the traditional starter on the bottom of the menu. Nice environment with many plants and wine barrels.

Myself and my girlfriend visited after developing a real love for Greek cuisine over the course of a week here. I was really happy to have found Klimataria; it's exactly the type of place I prefer, no frills, local, informal, simple but hearty and tasty food. It was full of people, very hectic so we were squeezed in right at... More

The location of the taverna is not ideal, but the experience its really worth to try. From the deco to the food and they also have live music from time to time. In the summer the courtyard is as a super atmosphere.

Had lunch here in December 2015. There is a good variety of tasty foods, good wine and quite good service. There is live music in the evenings too.

Really nice local place, bit hard to find and the area seems a bit rough, but there is no trouble and its worth going to. Inexpensive and incredible food. Strangely there isnt any desert, but the staff made a traditional Greek pudding type thing for us specially and free of charge. They also gave us a couple of shots of... More

A very nice restaurant in the center of Athens,with a rich tradition and amazing decor. Entering into you think you are on an island. The food is very delicious,especially the homemade pies. The music is folk,artistic and general alternative. The downside is that the sound of the music is very loud and you can not talk with someone sitting next... More

Klimataria is located in a very "weird" surroinding and probably you wouldn't step in without a proper reference, however once in you experience such a great local atmosphere and, the most important thing, great typical food.

Excellent local tavern. We got a day with live music from a small amateurs band with Greek music. Most enjoyable. To those who don't like salted food, as per some other reviews that I read, please note that it is excellent spicy food, meze concept more than food. It must be salty and spicy to help consumption of wine, which... More

Neighborhood Profile
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.
