We had a great lunch here. There's plenty of alternatives along this road, but this restaurant has the best menu, so there's something for everyone. Food was excellent and service was great. Good value too. Recommended.

Found this restaurant whilst looking for gluten free recommendations as I am a coeliac. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. On our first visit, my fiancé and I shared tzatziki, I got to have gluten free bread which was delicious. I then got to have fried...zucchini and calamari and chips which were both delicious and a real treat to get to have. After the mains we got a complimentary mini yoghurt, honey and walnuts which was perfect to finish. We enjoyed it so much we went back the second day. Staff very friendly again, when my fiancé ordered a lemonade as per the previous night, they checked if I wanted a coca cola light which was my order from the previous night, just one of the many examples of great service. I had gluten free pasta and my fiancé who is not gluten free really enjoyed his food both nights too, a great portion of gyros for him. Yoghurt again for after. Would be going back again tonight if wasn't for lock down!More

Went here for a couple of nights and particularly enjoyed the mixed grill for 2 which was enough for 3! Lovely and warm with outside heaters even though it was pouring down on the second nice, lovely touch being given a pot of yoghurt for...pudding, on the second night we didn’t feel like it do they gave us ouzo instead.More

I had the traditional moussaka with a cake for dessert. It was extremely delicious food. The service was also great, along with very decent prices. I would definitely come back here for a meal.

We had a great dinner here this evening. The menu was very wide ranging, and we plumped in the end for the mixed grill for 2 which was terrific. I'm glad we took the advice of another FB reviewer and didnt have a starter as...the portion is very large! Beautifully cooked, each bite was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We had the Vergina beer which was great, chilled and very refreshing. The hosts generously gave us an ouzo on arrival which started the evening well. The pitta breads were warm and soft, sausage spicy and delicious, chicken tasty and perfectly seasoned, and pork cooked to perfection. A Greek meat lovers extravaganza this was perfect for us tonight. We had a lovely evening with you and would highly recommend to others. Thank you. 😊More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel receptionist & satisfied our need for some good Greek food without pretentions & the usual tourist trappings. Tables were well-spaced & the waiter was knowledgeable about the food, without being pushy. A most enjoyable evening.

After many weeks on Greece, I am sure that thos restaurant serves the best Gyros in the whole country. And for my vegetarian partner they have original and amazing options. Especially their risotto!

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
