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.

Great casual restaurant with exceptional service . Waiter was very informative about Greece and made several recommendations on choices and was very detailed on the freshness and origins of the food . We sat at a outdoor table great for people watching located close to...a lot of other taverns . The food was very tasty and fresh .More

We stumbled across Athinaikon on our penultimate day when we were walking back from the Acropolis Museum. The restaurant looked beautiful from the outside and as we walked inside we saw an outdoor seating area on the road at the back. The seating area was...surrounded by plants and had a lovely atmosphere. We shared a half liter of the house wine along with the halloumi which was served Caprese style with fresh tomatoes. I chose the prawn linguini whilst Ryan had the mussels and we were both really impressed with the food. Our waiter was also great and very friendly. This was one of our top finds during our trip.More

We were recommended this restaurant, especially for moussaka, by a local couple that we met in a nearby bakery - and it did not disappoint. We ate a late lunch here and then returned for dinner a few days later. The restaurant is modern and...classy. The food was very good, from the varied salads to the seafood and steak. The moussaka was delicious. The waiters were efficient. The food is not cheap, but reasonable given what we ate and the location.More

Food was pretty good, the prices are reasonable for the location. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, place is very elegant, but I expected more from the dishes.

It's an elegant place, very much of its time and well maintained. The food is average, very average. Reminded me more of your average pub grub. The service is that you'd get from an old school barbers, hairdressers for men only. It's gruff, to the...point and if you are any type of foodie, you will not eat here. In fact why not just go to a pub.More

We have been frequent customers of Athinaikon restaurant in Athens- Mitropoleos, for quite a few years and last night we experienced an unpleasant surpise; we were four persons celebrating the nameday of one of us! We had the very nice Athinaikon green salad and fried...zucchini for starters; and decided -the two of us- to have steaks, one ordered grilled chicken breast and the fourth "dolmades"; with the exception of dolmades the steaks and the children were awful, especially the steaks the most expensive portion of the menu! We are seriously thinking of never visiting again a restaurant that we have been considering as one of the best in town! What a pity 😡More
