We loved this place so much that we went there twice although Athens has restaurants on every corner. Very good and fresh food, fantastic atmosphere, clean, very nice hosts and staff, children friendly. We would definitely recommend this place to others visiting Athens and when...we come back, we will surely come again to eat here. Dear hosts, we wish you lots of health, happiness and good business.More

The reception is friendly, the restaurant itself really nice and there is even a rooftop with a splendid view of the acropolis at night. The food is really good and not expensive at all. The staff is cheerful and concerned about the well being of...the customer without being invasive. Everything for a great night. I would recommend anytime !More

Great restaurant, I cannot recommend it enough! We went there to have only a small dinner but eventually finished with starter, dinner, desserts and drinks and definitely we don't regret it. The meat was juicy and tender, the staff were extremely polite. Definitely go there...and have something to eat :)More

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

I wouldn’t think so, but we were there pretty early. There are SO many restaurants in that area, they always have someone out there trying to sell their restaurant & bring you in.
