A short stroll from the parthenon and across from the museum. A little hard to find but worth the effort. Beer and pizza hit the spot. Average food but at a very good price. Service very attentive.

I went there with my family and i ate a excellent food, but the expirience in this restaurant was perfect because one waitress (Adriane) was very polite and lively she made the dinner special.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
