We ate at the Black Sheep in August 2020 and can honestly say it was out best meal of out Athens Trip. The atmosphere is great, the staff lovely and the food is out of this world. I hope that the people who own the...restaurant and their staff are ok during the pandemic and I hope to visit there again when things get back to normal.More

We had to book for a table and we understood why! Very popular restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food was absolutely delicious and came in large portions. The meal was one of the highlights of our trip to Athens and I would highly recommend!

We made the huge mistake of having a big lunch on the day we were planning to eat here. When we arrived we were still quite full, and only ordered some small dishes. The food was absolutely to die for; the preparation and the quality...were amazing. The meat was so tender and the seasoning so delicious. I really wish we would have been able to taste more dishes and to take our time with this. So don't make the same mistake we did, and go for a light and early lunch before having dinner here! The restaurant is hip, yet cozy. The decor is modern and warm at the same time. The restaurant consist of two small rooms. I feel like the main room with the bar is the most cozy. Aside from this, there is also a sizable seating area outside in the street. This is illuminated by some lovely lights. The staff was very kind and attentive too. Prices were very reasonable, especially considering the quality. This restaurant is understandably very popular, as it is such a hidden gem, so you'd be wise to make a reservation ahead of time.More

Nice some of the plates not all of them that I tried. Prices could be better for the quality. I would prefer a bigger variety on salads

very good food, local products, the service was perfect even we didn't booked before they have offered a table for 4 persons. Fried zucchini and some tomatoes and cheese balls where just amazing.

They almost forced us to pay and leave before finishing our last bite while the next booking did not even come yet and they even lied in our face that the reservation was there ... They were patronizing and arrogant and they implied negative comments...about the Cypriots.More

This place has a good mix of fish, meat and vegetarian. As the veggie at the table I ordered a nu. Bed of sides as I didn't fancy pasta and I wasn't let down. The halloumi was delicious as was the smoked aubergine 🍆 but...the mouth watering Orzo was something else. I truly flavoursome meal. My friends had the lamb to share and confirmed it was the best, ye der lamb they had in a li v time. This meal was very reasonable for 4 starters, a main, a bottle of wine and tea if was £60 and the service was spot on, staff were very helpful and had time to provide recommendations. Must do place yo eat if your in the area.More

The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first
modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to
the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of
Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy
main roads and residential streets will give you a
clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like.
A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west
side of the stadium will bring you past the First
