I found this via TripAdvisor and it was very good. A few items were sold out, which was fine. Cardamon flavor in lemonade wasn't universally liked in my group. No house wine I was aware of. My chicken pie was delicious. Haloumi salad was a...More

We loved the food and wine selection of this hidden gem, outside traditional touristic places. Owners are extremely kind and they perfectly explain their wonderful dishes. Super-highly-recommended!

Good food and great, personal service, I would definitely recommend ! We truly felt welcome. I think it may have been the owner who was serving us, and he gave us a complimentary lemon drink because it was a hot day.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other

are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
