It may not be the best restaurant in Athens (as we are not a food expert to verify the best restaurant!) but it ticked all the boxes for us to have made us keep going back! Clean and spacious - especially pleasant to dine in...More

Our hotel (Melia Athens) suggested the restaurant. We had a family of 8 (mostly all over 18). The restaurant is very inviting and comfortable. The prices are reasonable and the menu is fairly diverse but Greek traditional. The Moussaka was amazing! The smoked cheese, risotto...More

Great location, a very pleasant and elegant eating experience at very reasonable prices. We had a real vegan feast that included fava, poached local greens, a garlic and nuts spread, a salad, a pasta dish and a glass of white wine, all for 30 euros....More

A restaurant that has been operating since 1932 and still doing good business is no mean feat. Service, food, prices and ambiance very satisfactory. I found it a bit better value than Tzitzikas and Mermigkas nearby, with slightly bigger portions, but both are very good...More

This is the upscale sibling of the traditional seafood taverna in Themistokleous Street, bearing the same name. The food quality is commendable and the ambience relaxed. Recommended.

A traditional greek restaurant with full menu and traditional environment. Not a tavern, classier than that. Not a luxurious option. Just nice with a pretty decent menu. I had lunch with my wife. She ordered a shrimp risotto (average) and I had a very good...More

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,

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.
