Location and contact

“Oinopoleion”… means Wine-shop. From the Winery straight to your table! A traditional wine-restaurant with a long history since 1928 where wine holds the leading role since it is an actual branch of the Attican Winery “Markou Vineyards”. At “Oinopoleion” you can drink wine by the glass or by the carafe or bottled offering a variety of both indigenous and foreign grape varieties which are grown exclusively at the Markou family’s vineyards and all aim to please even the most demanding palettes. The Markou winery’s wines are accompanied by finely executed delicious dishes, made of the freshest Mediterranean ingredients and based on Greece’s vast regional cuisine.

First restaurant after arriving into Athens. Got a good first impression of the city! Friendly staff, with some special care from them; a private table in the garden. Really nice. Food was mediocre, but the atmosphere was perfect.

Dear Angelos F, We are very sorry that our freshly washed water glasses smelled of fresh onion?! However, that in it self, that has never happened before to anyone else, cannot indicate "dirt" as you so offensively put it. If I had to guess, it...More

Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighborhoods Psirri and Gazi provide
some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost
claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an
interesting blend of original small businesses with
the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently
sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron
Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further
west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of
