sorry, date here is wrong, I just got access to my my account again after a pandemic hiatus. It was Sept 2022. Loved this simple family restaurant, Mum and daughter front of house, son is chef, had been run for many years by dad who'd...recently passed away. Great dishes, very friendly, good value, welcoming. Some might think it's not immediately attractive inside - a bit canteen-like, but you forget that in the first two minutes. Loved it all. Mum loves to chat.More

The waitress was charming, not afraid to express her opinion and advice. Their gyro was divine, with a twist - pickled onions on top, which really added a zip. For families I gather they also have chicken nuggets, though these don’t appear on the menu....Good music. A lovely evening.More

Amazing spot for breakfast/brunch, and any other meal really, staff was helpfful and kind beyond our expectations, and the kitchen is heavenly. We kept going back there for at least a meal on a daily basis during our week-long stay :) And when we come...to Athens again, Smile will be the first place we will visit to eat!More

Fantastic slow cooked pork gyro. Cooked for 18hrs and very tender. Superfriendly staff. Would most likely come here again and try the other dishes they have on the menu.

Honestly this is best restaurant I have been in last few years. We have been 4 people and we ordered different dishes. Everything was perfect. Fresh, cooked meals from scratch . Nothing fancy and expensive, just fresh delicious food. They deserved Michelin star 🌟. I...wish you all the best. I will definitely come again 😊.More

Honestly, this restaurant deserves all the 5 star ratings. The food is incredible. Zoe, one of the owners, gave us recommendations and everything was amazing. We came here FOUR times during our stay: 3 times for dinner and once for breakfast. We stayed in Greece...for 3 weeks and our other meals were decent, but not as enjoyable and delicious as the ones we had here. Get the Greek salad: it's a twist on the traditional- it has whipped feta! Try the bruschetta! And every entree is spectacular. No lie. Oh and the dessert! ♥️ To top it off, Zoe, the owner, is the kindest woman. We had great conversations and she's someone we'll never forget. :) Just come here. You'll love it.More

Arrived about 8 o’clock without a reservation and were given a table by the window inside. Lots of people had arrived at the same time so took a few minutes to take our order. Had homemade focaccia as a starter and the kebab burger and...pork gyros as mains. All delicious. With two large beers and two glasses of wine, €57. Service very friendly.More

The best waiting staff I’ve had dining at a restaurant. Loved the simple menu and can tell that so much effort gets put into the food. Freshly made pasta. The atmosphere is quiet yet inviting whether dining solo or with a crowd. Definitely would recommended.

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
