went there after the reviews on Tripadvisor - was pleasantly surprised - had a decent two courses and 500ml of the local wine for 25e.......Imported wines are expensive, but the local red wine comes slightly chilled and is very drinkable

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

I don’t know since we didn’t discuss the topic. The great majority of Greeks are Greek Orthodox and pork is not necessarily a menu item. They do serve seafood however...hope that addresses your concern!
