I ate there with a friend. The personnel is unbelievably rude, they are all around 70 years old and it is like the do a favour by serving you...So rude and arrogant, i could not believe it. The trainees though are ok, but they just bring you the bill. The food is so bad, so badly grilled souvlaki, it was... More

Used to be a nice place but has turned into a money-making machine. They want you in and out in 5 minutes. Food is of questionable quality, sometimes served cold. It is at a nice location though. They don't serve souvlaki in pita which is the traditional way to eat souvlaki.

Take out Gyro pitta at €2.20, what I am I to say. (Need to reach 100 characters minimum on tripadvisor.) Great for a quick bite.

Visited for lunch. Cheap beer on the menu, live music, and lots of locals inside, so it was an easy choice to try and enjoy local Athenian atmosphere. Without asking bread was put on our table, so we decided to order. We ordered one dish, and it was enough for two people. If you are on a budget like we... More

We were told this was one of the oldest restaurants in the Plaka and so we decided to go there to get a quick bite to eat. We were in the area. We did not seek out this restaurant. By looking at the exterior, we weren't expecting a 4 or 5 star restaurant, we were expecting someplace to get a... More

We stop by because on the wall it was written since 1879. My son took a moussaka and it was the worst moussaka he had ever tasted . There was 98 percent of mash potatoes and it doesn't even taste like real potatoes and you had to search for the meat. It is a shame !!

This place screams for tourist trap and this is exactly what you will get. People fishing customers outside the bar, then stuffing regular food of ok-ish quality. This is not a place for seafood or fish eaters. Just meat and expect it oily. And... expensive.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
