We passed by this lovely small restaurant a few days earlier and came back to have a coffee. It is a nice place and we really enjoyed our coffee and milkshake. We were there end of the morning and were very happy with a spot...in the shade.More

Klepsidra Cafe is an excellent place to enjoy traditional Greek food in the heart of Plaka. Excellent service of the waitress, tasty food and good price, beautiful view on Athens from a part of their terrace. We were so happy that we went back several...times during our stay in Athens. I definitely recommend !More

We visited the this wonderful friendly taverna at the end of August 2020. This was a return visit for us as we had dined here before in previous years. As always the food and service were excellent. What makes it so special though is the...atmosphere if you sit outside on a warm summer evening. Klepsidra is located in Plaka on a beautiful little pedestrian only street. You can just sit back, enjoy your food and wine and watch the tourists pass by tucked away behind the Roman Agora. This makes it a bit quieter than the main thoroughfares of Plaka so is perfect if you want to really unwind and relax. Pricing is competitive too.More

Cute and quiet location hidden behind the Roman Agora. Perfect Greek terrace to feel a sense of vacation. The food was excellent and well advised! I had the lamb in lemon sauce, very tasty and melting of the bone. My vegan friend ordered by mistake...the Mousaka (with meat). The waiter kindly took the plate away and suggested an alternative. About the service, friendly and carrying, you feel welcomed and not just another tourist. Best advise: have a table slightly after lunch time (2pm+) and you will have the area to yourselves.More

Really nice place to have a drink or perhaps something to eat (I didn’t) when your way down from the top of Plaka. Had a really nice orange iced drink. Nice views if you head down the street of the Roman Ágora

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
