We gad at great dinner at Mavros Gatos; simple but delicious food combined with a very friendly service. All of that at a very low price range, so the food is more than worth the money you spend! Recommended!

In general the food is not something special. The prices are ok and the service is friendly. The atmosphere is like a traditional old greek taverna.

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
