After reading countless other reviews on TA, this was one of our "must tries" while in Athens, and we were definitely not disappointed! After a morning spent at the Acropolis and passing by the other tourist trap type places, we easily found To Kati Allo and it was well worth the short walk on a really hot day. All of... More

I had the Mousaka, it was so delicious I ordered a second one (shared it with my wife). If you want fine dining, this is not the place for you, but if you just want good honest Greek food, then I highly recommend this place! Very reasonably priced too!

From the street this does not look very prepossesing, and there are only a few table. However, the food is excellent.

What a great find! We stopped in on our last night because it was just down the street from our hotel. I wish we had discovered it earlier. The proprietor brought us inside to describe all the dishes to us before seating us at a sidewalk table. Everything is homemade and delicious. Chicken and pork roasting on a spit was... More

The food here was fabulous! The lamb chops, pork chops, salmon and moussaka are a must. It was value for money too! The staff are lovely and speak English. The view of the Acropolis museum was great! Highly recommended to everyone!

We had lunch at this place after visiting the Acropolis Museum. It's a tavernas where you choose your food from the kitchen and grill. Very good food and friendly service. Just following some of the previous comments - I didn't find the portions small, but didn't like the spinach crepes... On the other hand, the tatziki was excellent and so... More

This is a little restaurant in the centre of Athens. It is run by a family who have been incredibly hospitable during my stay here. Among several of my other friends, we have been to this restaurant for lunch and dinner at least over four times in the space of two weeks! That says a lot about how good the... More

This was our very first meal in Athens and we really enjoyed it. The choices are limited and the food is basic BUT it is fresh and it is tasty and it is reasonably priced. This is not something you will find a lot in this part of Athens. Our hostess was lovely and of course very hands on, since... More

This is a real Greek taverna with home cooked type food. There is a menu but it is better to go to the counter to view the selections. The decor is very simple but clean and really looks like a taverna should look. This prices are very reasonable we would certainly return if we were in the area.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
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 up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
