A "fish'n'chips" tradition in the heart of Athens, literally 2 mins walk from the Acropolis new museum! Who would have imagined? Worth tasting! Value for money place. Loved their shrimp-dish too (super yummy)!

Good start to our stay in Athens, nice large cup of coffee - needed after an 11 hour flight! Then a tasty egg and bacon roll plus a filling cheese omelette. Friendly service and a good location near the Acropolis museum.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
