This place is off the charts amazing! Hummus is incredible. The Pita bread was perfect texture! We got the boiled mussels, wow were they tasty!!! Risotto, salmon and chicken gyro were our order, but based on how good they were, I am confident EVERYTHING HERE...IS superb! Best in Plaka…. Do not miss this place on your trip to Athens!More

We chose this restaurant simply because it wasn’t packed like the others near by. We had the appy platter and enjoyed the variety it came with. Good service too.

My daughter and I were walking around the Plaka and started to get hungry, so we continued walking and stumbled upon Old Ithaki. How lucky! The service was great, the food was delicious, and the location was convenient, but also the perfect amount of seclusion....My daughter is a little over 3.5 years old, and it is sometimes challenging to have her eat/drink something that she willingly eat drink that is nutritious. I asked if there had apple juice, and the server looked like he was pondering what to do. He told me, he can make it. He came back with fresh squeezed apple juice! My daughter loved it! For food, we ordered a Greek salad and chicken souvlaki. That was more than enough. I was the only one eating the green salad, so I was getting full before I could finish it. Regarding the service, they always came by to fill my glass and checked in. Very attentive service. Long story short, the meal was so enjoyable, we came back for dinner. To our pleasant surprise, they had live music. It was the perfect night for our last night in Greece. I highly recommend the Old Ithaki.More

We were recommended this restaurant by our nearby hotel concierge and enjoyed an authentic dinner. Outside seating overlooking the church with excellent service by the wait staff. Traditional meze sampler was delicious.

We arrived early - around noon, so wasn't very crowded. But the waiter was great - it was our first day in Athens and he was helpful on suggestions for both food and the local beers. We shared a traditional Greek appetizer tray - and...that could have been a complete meal. But we also had mussels cooked perfectly in a nice broth. Get the bread to dunk in the broth! Thanks for a great meal!More
