Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a

tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki

Monastiraki, where this restaurant is located, is one of the busiest places of Athens, being located right next to the Parthenon and the Ancient Agora. They are always open, usually till late in the evening.
