We stumbled across this lovely taverna by accident. Live music (sat night) was superb. The food was excellent and fresh. The white wine was delicious. All very reasonably priced.

Its is the oldest Athenian tavern in Plaka. The name means fried cod fish and it's their speciality served with a spicy garlic sauce. The menu is the one they always served in Athens tavernas. Tasty stuffed vine leaves with rice. Nice meatballs, many vegetarian dishes and lots of meat and fish. The wine comes from the family's vineyards. The... More

The food was all tasty and well cooked. Lovely staff and a clean bright interior despite being underground. The sea bream was perfect

I usually avoid submitting a review after visiting a place for the first time. So, this was the third time in the specific taverna, which I find quite cosy and authentic although it is located in a very touristic neighbourhood of Athens (Plaka). However, this time the quality of some dishes seemed to have diminished (especially the swordfish fillet). I... More

Bakaliarakia was a typical taverna in Plaka. Good food and fair prices. The presence of the typical waiter whose purpose is grabbing tourists from the street and some clients smoking inside made me lower my judgement that would have otherwise been higher

This tavern dates from the 1860s. Great atmosphere, very good food, value for money. One of the Plaka district's most interesting eating joints.

We found this place by pure chance walking around Plaka. It is in a basement down a flight of stairs, and we were intrigued by the subterranean location. This place has been in business for over 100 years, and the decor seems to date from the 1940s. Food was quite good, service was very attentive, and the price was reasonable.... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
