“A Perfect Evening Under the Acropolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Away from the helter skelter of the Plaka, we had a near perfect meal with the gigantic, rugged Acropolis and the elegant beauty of the Parthenon above us. We chose grilled octopus (grilled to perfection) with a many coloured salad (quite delicious) and drank retsina. A trio of musicians played with great vitality - but not too loudly. Two cats sat beside us, apparently not interested in us or the food but entranced by the music. The staff were helpful but in no way overpowering. Perfection..

“Nice location and atmosphere let down a bit by the food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The position is perfect with good service. We may just have lucked out with the food as other food we saw coming out looked very good. However while our starters were good the swordfish was tasteless and unidentifiable. Would still try again just avoid the swordfish next time.

“Perfect setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

The "Cave" is the perfect combination of excellent food, service and atmosphere. In a tourist location such as the Plaka where you can have terrible food and pushy waiters (the restaurants on the 'main drag' close to the Temple of Zeus should be avoided at all costs), the "Cave" obviously takes pride in their food and making their patrons feel comfortable and never rushed. I would recommend this for anyone traveling in Athens looking for a relaxing and very tasty meal.

“Gem of Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

This gem of a restaurant lays at the foot of the Acropolis. The food is excellent, the portions are reasonable (not over the top), the staff are polite unlike the carnival barkers one sees in the Plaka. The place itself is off the beaten path and is quiet and peaceful. The staff are excellent. Prices are also good so you don't get that annoyed feeling you get when you feel you've been ripped off. Excellent lunch. Fair people!
Look up and you see the Acropolis- doesn't get better.
