Many thanks for the lovely meal - enjoyed the friendly staff and the extra mile with the waiter coming out to give us a bottle of cold water to travel with instead of the unfinished one from the restaurant meal.

We were craving some Indian food and found this little restaurant right by our hotel. It was clean and modern. Service was on the slower side because the food is prepared fresh. It’s nice to see the chefs cook right in front of you however...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,
