The meal was nice, fresh and not traditional, but a bit overpriced for me in compassion with other tavernas in the city.

We went on a Saturday night and it was nearly empty. I cannot understand why because the food and service were excellent for a very reasonable price. We would have dined there again but it was closed for the next two days.

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
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
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,
