No visit to Athens is complete without a visit to Ta Kapamanaiaika … an old butcher shop turned into a restaurant. The food is traditional Greek food of the finest quality, but expect to wait in a line if u don’t have reservations

We ordered the eggplant and zucchini appetizer and the kavourmas dish. Both were delicious and it was difficult to pick a favourite. After we had the carrot and yogurt for dessert. Will definitely go again if we make it back to Greece.

We ate at this small, bustling deli- restaurant twice on a recommendation from The Guardian newspaper and weren’t disappointed. In fact, we had great experiences on both occasions. The staff were friendly, helpful explaining the menu and offering wine suggestions and generally attentive. The food...is traditional in style, good portion size and nicely presented. Everything was delicious- taramsalata, marinated anchovies, smoked eel, stuffed vine leaves, various sausage containing dishes, salads, pastry parcels, baked aubergine, courgette and tomatoes. The meal was finished off beautifully with a complimentary dish of Greek yogurt with sweet caramelised carrots. Thoroughly recommended for a tasty, good value, traditional meal with a very pleasant atmosphere.More

Popular restaurant, booking in advance is advisable. On arrival the staff were friendly and welcoming. Lovely restaurant, great ambience. Food was amazing, great portion sizes, really reasonably priced. One of our best meals in Athens. Definitely recommend.

Off the beaten path and not very touristy. We tried to go back a second time but they were closed on Sundays. We try not to eat at the same place on vacation but we wanted to go back for the sausages. The food here...is slow cooked, comfort food, served in a deli like environment. They start you off with complimentary corn beef. Very delicate and very good. The eggplant dishes(eggplant with feta and zucchini and the eggplant with garlic purée) were both good. The grape leaves were typical but satisfying. The sausages are great, flavor bombs with great smokiness from the grill and very juicy(watch for flying meat juice as you cut them juicy). They are served with yogurt, red onion, mustard, and a thick pita bread. Dessert is also complimentary in the form of carrot cooked in honey on top of yogurt. You want this, even if you think you don’t. Act surprised if you already know you’re getting this because they like to quiz you on what you think it is. Service was very hospitable.More

Unusual charcuterie based deli with loads of tables. For preference take a table in the deli area rather than the slightly poky alleyway. Very popular, need to book. (But lods of other options in the area).

Our experience was really marred by the initial abrupt greeting, and really didn’t improve from then onwards. After being treated as if we were lying about our booking (we were not) we were grudgingly ushered away from the hubbub and atmosphere to a roof terrace...that was at best unusual and at worst slightly grubby and outdated with zero ambiance. We shared the scene with a crying baby and a couple smoking like chimneys. The food was mediocre and without the scene setting from the charcuterie downstairs lacked lustre. I would not go back and would not recommend.More

Authentic Greek restaurant recommended by our hotel concierge. We allowed our waiter to suggest our wine and asked his favorite meals. We got a bottle of wine, eggplant salad (it was very Smokey), the beef with potatoes and peppers, and a sausage dish. Comes with...bread and complimentary yogurt and sweet carrots for dessert. Total bill 40 euros. We left full and happy.More

Excellent choice for traditional Greek cuisine. When we arrived at 6 p.m. on Saturday, they informed us that they were fully booked but that they could accommodate us for one hour, which was ideal for us. The food and wine are excellent. I had a...delicious bulgur dish. The service is attentive, and they treated us to some Greek yogurt and caramelized carrot dessert before we left.More

Decadent, distinguished and delightful dishes perfectly complemented by the warm and friendly service. Throughly enjoyed the marinated anchovies, chickpea pastrami and the ‘hug on a plate’ beef/potato dish known as Kavourmas. Leaving with a full stomach and a big smile. Thank you.
