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

We eat very well in this restaurant. Nice portions, quality food and a resonable price. Friendly service also. A traditional restaurant.

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

I walked around for some time and was tired of trying to make up my mind when the doorman spoke to me of the 'authenticity' of this restaurant. I have been staying in the Greek islands for 2 months and have had some great food experiences. This was not one of them. My starter - zucchini croquettes - was perfectly... More

It may not have the outdoor seating but the food is delicious, staff courteous rather than pushy, and has competitive pricing - an important concern when the £ is worthless!! The house, own vineyard, wine was great - we had a lovely evening! Thank you.

We chose this place to eat as the chap outside sold its charms, food and wine. He was warm and affable so in we went. I guess in hindsight somewhere that needs that much of a charm offensive on the door to get people in is covering up something. We had high expectations with his Grandmothers recipe book and own...

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
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.
