Been there few years ago, took my son there too, he doesn't like pork or cheese so he took the lamb kebab and I had chicken souvlaki, for the first time since I got here. The kebab tasted good though I get the feeling it was not prepared there but rather the one you can buy in the market. My... More

We loved eating at this restaurant. You are very much treated as a dear friend, from the moment you are greeted by Constantine and Stelios outside (they encourage you to visit the restaurant, but are not in your face which is refreshing) to the amazing detail to service provided by George inside. We loved the choice of food and the... More

If you've walked around the Acropolis and all the way back down the hill, this is the perfect place to stop for lunch. The beer and water are ice-cold and the food is very good indeed. We chose a tuna salad, fresh grilled sardines and a skordalia dip - absolutely delicious. The bill was accompanied by some cool refreshing water... More

We found this place out of pure luck because it's rig HR near Monistraki Square, but it was by far our favorite restaurant in all of Greece. The olive spread that came with the bread was amazing, service was good, and all of the food was great. The spanakopita was fried and was ok, but no other complaints. We've now... More

Don't usually eat in restaurants where people are standing outside persuading you to go in but we were tired and needed a break, glad we did. The service was pleasant and the food top draw, you get a lot for what you pay in Greece and this was no exception. Would definitely recommend.

This place was AMAZING. Excellent service; the staff was exceptional. The food was so delicious. Went spent about 3 days in Athens and managed to go there 3 times! Very close to the metro station and other sight seeing locations and shopping areas. I would highly recommend! We all got different food and loved each meal. Live music in the... More

There are plenty of places to eat on Adrianou in Monistiraki, but this is an excellent option. The food is great, staff are welcoming, and the ambience is great, with live music the evening we visited. Highly recommended.

4 of us had beer, wine, the large meat plate, and 2 other dinners! The food and atmosphere was way more than we could eat. The meal began with a warm crusty bread - delicious - and ended with watermelon. We each paid €20 and that included a €14 tip! The food was simply excellent (especially the cheese balls on... More

I asked a local shop owner who sold sweets if she could recommend a place with good moussaka. She recommended this place and although the serving size was big the food was average. Moussaka had a lot of potatoes and hardly any eggplant. Taramasalala dip I ordered was salty but tasty. As with most Greek restaurants they offered me free... More

The place is basically okay, quality is better than an ordinary tourist restaurant, furthermore there is live music all night long. We liked the food but not the wine :(

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighborhood Profile
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
