Stopped by for light lunch on 14 September 2012. Great food and excellent value for money. Friendly staff. Really yummy home made pastry wrap with guyere cheese, tomato and peppers inside. Tender calamari and Greek meatballs. For a small sidewalk cafe highly recommended.

Excellent cafe and restaurant with a nice outdoor are. Staff is friendly. Prices are fair. Food includes traditional Greek and international choices. Pasta for those with a squeamish stomach after just arriving. Located close to the Acropolis Museum.

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!
