About
A traditional Greek restaurant next to the new Acropolis Museum, reached easily by the nearby Acropolis Metro Station. It concentrates on unique local ingredients and recipes to create the Greek "mezes" (tit-bits) plates which usually accompany wine, ouzo $ raki. The mezes provides for a wide variety of tastes to choose from in smaller portions and lower prices. Come & try our Greek hospitality!

This is a jewel, situated across from the Acropolis Museum. The street is lined with restaurants, so picking one can be "iffy" at best. But, when Irene stepped out with her enchanting smile, and substantial menu, we were hooked. The food and staff are so...More

Best service and amazing food! Also they greet you with a taste of raki, the typical drink for Athens. Location is also amazing, just 5 minutes from acropolis!

climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
