Loved it! The only reason I didn't rate it as a "5" is because, well, it's home cooking and that only gets so good (which is still really good). Authentic and delicious, just what you want when you don't know what you want.

For price and the friendliness of the staff of this family run business, this delightful place cannot be bettered. I ate here a couple of times in 2015 when staying in Athens for a couple of nights and when I returned exactly a year later, was delighted to be remembered!

Right behind the Acropolis museum, this restaurant is a gem, far from the tourist traps! The family who runs it is friendly and takes the time to explain the menu and give advice. The food was delightful, typical and extremely fresh, all of this for a very small price. We had a lovely time and might even come back tomorrow... More

My husband and I came here for dinner before we were going to see the symphony at the Acropolis theatre - it was a great location since it is right near the Acropolis - we sat outside but right across from us were a couple eating on the inside - the glass was completely open so we could chat with...

As many reviewers have already, correctly, said this is a really authentic Greek taverna. The dishes of the day are displayed on the counter and you choose whatever you fancy. The place is family run and very welcoming. I had a most delicious moussaka there and they usually have other Greek classics. Very reasonable prices. What is most remarkable is... More

Eating here is like being invited by some Greek friends to their place for some home cooked meals. In fact, this is a family owned and run restaurant with dad and mom cooking and the son serving food. The food is real and excellent. Prices are also excellent. We had lamb and horta. The location is on a quiet street... More

This restaurant serves good basic Greek food without it being spectacular. This is a family affair with Mama in the kitchen, son serving and Baba keeping s watchful eye on the passing parade. You will find good Greek salad, very good chargrilled fish and meat. There are other offerings in the Bain Marie including dolmadakia, maybe yemista or youvetsi. Choose... More

If you want to go to a low key dinner that's good, this is the place to go. The food is very authentic and the wait staff is very friendly. If your in Athens definitely make a stop here, you will not be disappointed!

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.
