About
Τhe new Athinaikon restaurant began to work alongside the little brother of Themistokleous in 2013. It expresses the Greek-Mediterranean cuisine at its best, has reasonable prices and is addressed to a public that looks for authentic flavors from folk and transient fashions. The Athinaikon is an idea that survives time and knows how to transform.

A slightly more upscale restaurant with a variety of delicious Greek meat and seafood dishes—still very fair pricing. We got a variety of dishes that were all fresh, well made and delicious. Our favorite things were the shrimp fried in butter and garlic and the...mussels. The desserts were all fabulous as well! Highly recommend.More

We chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner and tried dishes we hadn’t had before. The peas with caramelised onions and olive oil were enjoyable but the signature dish of shrimp and langoustine croquettes with Athinaikon sauce was outstanding. The main courses of Squid and...also the ‘Fish in a pan’ with cheese were both very tasty and we would choose them again. The service was friendly and good. From where my husband was sitting he could see a large screen with images of old Athens.More

Ate here our first night in Athens. Good customer service. Exceptional desserts. Food was okay but not over the top. Prices were reasonable. The cheesecake is VERY good. The lamb was the best of the items we got. Several specials were marked out because sold...out but we were there at about 6:00.More

This restaurant is consistent whatever you order comes fairly fast, it tastes good and it's of good quality. Prices are reasonable and there's outdoor seating if you wish to sit out. I personally prefer to sit inside because there are many smokers that are seated...outside and it is a bit of a pain when you cannot sit and enjoy a meal when someone next to your table smokes like a chimney. The overall service is good.More
