This family-owned restaurant is a real joy. Fish grilled over charcoal, rotisserie chicken, a fresh Greek salad with a generous slab of feta, all wonderful. Delicious home cooking in a warm, welcoming environment where locals and travelers alike are treated with warmth and generosity. All very reasonable, less than €40 with wine. Well located across the street from the back... More

Walked past on our way to meet friends for dinner and decided to return to try some authentic Greek home cooking. What a fun experience for our party of 8. It was early for dinner in Athens (6:30) but our large party was quickly accommodated inside. It was warm inside but the a/c was immediately turned on. Our waitress was... More

Roast pork truly excellent. Family run restaurant. The husband waits tables, etc. and the wife cooks. Very "down home." Our two meals were less than 20 euros.

This restaurant deserves to be visited. The food is really a Greek one. Try to prove all you can that you will not be surprised with the bill. The quality is really amazing.

We spent four nights in Athens and were staying up the road, after eating here once we tried a recommended restaurant near the touristy strip around acropolis metro which was just no comparison. We came back here every night to try the days specials which were all good at a reasonable price and friendly service.

Mama and Papa do the cooking, whilst the son takes care of the front of house. Good wholesome Greek family food at very reasonable prices. Don't bother to go around the corner where there are loads of restaurants - complete with waiters trying to enter you in to eat. Just of the Main Street going past the Acropolis Metro station,...

This place is a great deal and the owner is a wonderful old lady that will treat you right Greek salad is amazing but the star of the show was the rotisserie pork. Come try it. It's not touristy at all but is right next to the museum so you'll still feel you're in a familiar place.

Oh where do I start?! We ate in this place 5 out of 7 days in a row! Their greek salad is only 4.5 euros and VERY worth the price. It is a family run business and the main guy in the front is friendly and makes funny conversations. I have tried the grilled vegetables with feta and its perfect!... More

I wanted to eat grilled pork on our first night in Athens and this place is a short walk from our hotel. My wife had the lamb from the spit. Very authentic Greek cafe food at very reasonable price. After Brexit vote sterling has plummeted so us Brits need good deals. We shared a 20cl bottle of Ouzo and had... More

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.
