We had a great evening with the family ; wonderful dishes and good advice on the matching wines from Greece. The glazed Iberico with the Sauvignon blanc from Alpha estates was superb! Deserts with mango cream, pistachio crumble with the Malvasia dessert wine from Crete was top! Thanks for an excellent meal in very nice ambiance.

We'd be wandering around Athens and wanted somewhere a bit different for lunch. Partially attracted by the great reviews (and partially by the crazy review by Juanita G (!!!!) we stopped by just as Mono was opening for lunch. The place was quiet, not that busy, and very relaxing. Nice pleasant staff and quick service. I enjoyed some wonderful octopus... More

Had the specials of the day: sea bass and a medley of seafood. Both meals were delicious. Preceded the meal with a salad with sliced tuna that was also amazing. The manager, Yiota, selected white wine to accompany the meal and her choice was spot on. The most attentive service and care was provided-truly delightful people! It's Greek food with... More

We had a beautiful meal at Mono last night. My husband and I and our two children all enjoyed the food and the service. Every meal had a great combination of flavours, the wine recommendations were brilliant and the service exceptional. Thank you for a lovely evening.

We were there for dinner in April 2015. Really friendly service - even when rushed, Giota took great care of us, and recommended some fabulous wines to go with the food, which we enjoyed, too.

The food is just excellent - fresh quality ingredients and very tasty. If you are into seafood it is worthwhile to go for the catch of the day. Staff is very friendly and caring, recommends great wine pairings. The restaurant is very cosy too. A must go place for gourmet's if in Athens.

Thank tmesi

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
