“Got the Goat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The restaurant was recommended to us by our Greek friends. I wish I could review them here, their help was spectacular and every recommendation was spot on. We had lunch here after a long morning of exploring the Acropolis and the Plaka. We started with the giant beans and I had the Kid Goat in parchment paper with Gruyere and tomato. It was excellent, but it was not as good as my wife’s main, the Lamb wrapped in wine leaves stuffed with cheese. I think this was our best meal in Greece and the lamb was the best main dish for quite some time. Thanks again to Stefanos and Lena for the recommendation and all the help.

“Great find! Excellent food and stunning view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Took a about a 15 minute cab to find this place after getting a bit lost. The zucchini balls, baked feta with honey and sesame seeds were my favorite. Mixed veggie salad was refreshing and had a fantastic dressing. The view was lovely. Make a reservation and sit on the rooftop. We got the last walk-in table and it was near the kitchen and inside-- still nice but would have been ideal to be upstairs and outside. Enjoy!

“a view to the goods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

I`m often in Athens. But never then less i don`t know a lot of authentic greek restaurants in Plaka. They are chic or toruistic or to much... The Strofi serves greek cucina in high quality and has a chic ambiente. Superb..

“We won! Not a tourist trap - Great food, service and location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner at Strofi. We arrived in Athens the same day and did not have a plan for dinner. After reading the Tripadvisor reviews of Strofi we headed out without making a reservation. (We were able to get a wonderful table without a reservation but regretted not heeding the advice of other writers; it is best to make a reservation as most of the best tables, including the entire roof, were reserved.)

The location of the restaurant is exactly what we like to seek out. Although it is very near the tourist areas -- an easy walk from the Acropolis -- it is actually in a pleasant residential area and NOT on an extremely touristy walking street.

The food was excellent and very affordable especially considering the view, big city, and how close the restaurant is to the main tourist area of Athens. Appetizers were 6-10 Euros each and although we ordered two appetizers for two of us lighter eaters could share one appetizer. We shared the Eggplant, fantastic, and also the rice and meat wrapped in vine leaves, also great.

The main courses were mostly priced at 15-18 Euro. The lamb and goat were both excellent, tender and delicious.

Wine selection was good and not expensive with a range of wines between 15 and 28 Euros.

The restaurant décor is fantastic. We were seated on the 2nd floor Canadain-speak (what the Euro's call the 1st floor) with apologies from the Maitre'd that it was not possible to sit on the roof as the roof was complete with reservations for the evening. It didn't matter because the 2nd floor was beautiful. Our table was next to the Window with a spectacular view of the Acropolis. There is a small wrap-around balcony on the 2nd floor with a couple of tables-for-two that looked like absolute paradise. Most tables on the 2nd floor and roof have a view of the Acropolis. The restaurant is beautiful with freshly renovated look with modern hard-wood floors and every detail quite elegant. Also, the restaurant has charm and elegance that fits well with the views of ancient Greece.

Service was excellent. Absolutely professional and friendly.

Strofi exceeded our expectations. Perhaps this restaurant caters to a lot of tourists but it did not feel like a "tourist trap". It is the type of restaurant that made us feel like we "won" the battle of finding a place that offers great food, great price, great service and has a spectacular view. Is there better food in Athens? Maybe, but you can't beat the location and the prices were fair too! Highly recommended for people that like good food and wine and an elegant atmosphere.
