We unashamedly went to this restaurant based on it's Trip Advisor reviews and we were glad we did! It's on a quieter side street (though not exactly off the beaten track) near one of the major cathedrals and it took us a little while to figure out exactly where it was. We were a little concerned at first as in... More

Food was delicious - server was very knowledgeable. We had the pork, lamb and skirt steak. We all enjoyed each plate. Octopus starter and mono salad - definitely order the mono salad. Finished with dessert and coffee. Highly recommend this excellent restaurant!

My wife and I stopped here early in the evening for dinner (very early for Greece) and had an amazing meal of a modern take on Greek cuisine (with some Asian influence it seems) with perfectly chosen wines to accompany it. Service was great. Make sure to leave room for dessert!

Waring: they don't accept credit card! Since other reviews warn against dishes not in the menu since they are more expensive, I ordered pork something from the menu. Sweet Jesus, it was phenomenal! The dessert was a fruity paste which was quite good. The service is ok. The place is beautiful but you'll sit outside of the weather allows. 26€... More

I've never written a review on trip advisor and I've had good experiences in general. 6 of us ate dinner. 2 meals were ok. 2 were passable. 2 were awful. We asked for another meal because we couldn't eat one and they still charged us for it.

We had a wonderful dinner here. Quite an inventive menu. The ahi tuna salad with watermelon was fantastic and the decomposed lemon cheesecake was delicious. Would highly recommend a visit. Located in Plaka it is easy to find

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

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.
