I generally only write reviews if a place is really awesome or really terrible. Awesome so that I can tell fellow travelers about great places that deserve their custom, and awful so that travelers can avoid the mistakes I made and stay away from these...More

We found this wonderful place with experienced waiters on the first morning of the year. All the clients were having coffee like us. Sitting in a balcony facing the passers by on the stairs of the Plaka was very enjoyable. The Greek coffee was the...More

Food was quite good, and traditional, not too pricey. View was good into the city of Athens and up to the Acropolis. Worth eating at!

The food was good but not any better than other restaurant's in Athens. The service was first good as well. However, when it came to bill, they somehow added 15 euro's to the bill.. be careful!

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains
the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay
and play. Its attractive features include small
squares, some notable museums and the beautiful
Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to

pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
