Came across this restaurant on 36 Hours/NY Times. Definitely worth a visit as the food is very good as is the service. We had eaten at a lot of tavernas and we were looking for something a little more upscale and different. I would recommend the Greek pasta dishes as well as the meatball dish. Vegetable dishes also very good... More

We arrived to this restaurant around 3pm for a late lunch with no reservation. There were a few empty tables so we got seated quickly, however less than 20 minutes later the restaurant was full. I recommend calling ahead for a reservation. The food was cooked to perfection. You can tell they use fresh locally sourced ingredients. The presentation of... More

I would recommend listening to the daily specials often based on market availability. Great well priced wine list. The wait staff is very pleasant and attentive without being overpowering. Simple decor which is... More

We had a wonderful dinner here in the early evening. No reservations and a short walk from the Acropoli stop. Skip the touristy restaurants of the Plaka and come here. The food was modern, refreshing and delicious! Prices were extremely reasonable. Love it!

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
