“Enjoyed our meals - twice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We were very close to the Acropolis metro and amidst what looked to be many tourist oriented restaurants. We chose The Yard Cafe and were very pleasantly surprised. While it's a casual cafe, the dishes we had were very well prepared, fresh ingredients and very courteous and professional service. We had a set meal lunch with a delicious salad with smoked trout, a turkey/bacon/bleu cheese entree (it sounds strange but delicious) and a light and satisfying dessert for 16 Euros. We went back for salads and roasted veggies and again were very pleased.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

I stopped at this cafe one afternoon to take in the scenery and fill out some postcards. What a great find! The service was excellent and gave a great recommendation on a local beer. They even turned on the outdoor lamps when they noticed I was a bit chilled. I would definitely stop here again on my next trip to Athens.

“Great find on way back to our hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We had a late dinner inside of this cozy restaurant. Food was very good and very reasonable. They have plate specials that are a lot of food- we stuck with the menu and had a very healthy, very Greek dinner with very cheap but good bottles of wine. A bottle is cheaper than 2 glasses so go figure. I am sure the inside vs. outside experience is very different - Loved inside seating though limited so I concur try for a reservation if you want inside.

“Lunch today”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

I'm always cautious about selecting places based on reviews, however I think this warrants the 4.5 it has on TA.

Stopped here on the way back from the Acropolis. We had Greek Salad and Chicken Salad followed by a shared Baklava. We accompanied it with a bottle of the house red.

Staff friendly, not pushy at all, service timely and the most important comment... Yes, I'd go back again.
