“Delicious Greek cuisine in the heart of the action of Plaka!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This restaurant was very good! Had the combination Greek plate for lunch one day and octopus the following day. Excellent service and great food on a quieter strip of Plaka. I had some really lousy food nearby and some of the other food I saw didn't look great either. This place was delicious!

“Good food, service, atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

After a long day of seeing the city we ended up in Plaka and our taxi driver said this was a good place to relax. It's a tourist spot but the taxi driver gave it a thumbs up so we got a table without hesitation. We sat along the street, open air, with a relaxing breeze and respite from the sun.

Anastasios was our server and we soon became fast friends, talking about Athens the country motorcycles and more. Good food, prompt and attentive service, a friendly environment across the entire place, and great value.

Would visit here again.

“Amazing Service and Relaxing Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

After arriving in Athens midday we did a mini sightseeing tour and ended in the plaka. Our cab driver dropped us off with a recommendation of Ydria. Our server Anastasios was impeccable. He was friendly, helpful and genuinely cared about the service. We could have talked to him for hours and felt like a friend from the start. I absolutely recommend this place for service, atmosphere, people watching and above all else good food.

This is the BEST representation of Greek food, with a relaxed atmosphere, excellent waiters ( not pushy) & reasonably priced. Well done!

This was a great spot in a beautiful area of the Plaka to eat. Good service great food and well priced. If you like the open air eating this is the place to go. Loved it
