This restaurant was very near our hotel, south of the Acropolis Museum, thus not in the Plaka area but still fairly convenient for most tourists. About 20 of us booked here for dinner and had a tasting menu, with at least three dishes to share at each course. We ate on the second floor up a winding staircase, at two... More

We were lucky enough to try out this fantastic little restaurant near the Acropolis. The place was listed in my guide and we would have never found it otherwise. What an amazing lunch! Our waiters were very polite and attentive. We had an amazing lunch paired with delicious wine. Mani Mani has the quality of a Michelin star restaurant, without... More

We were looking for a nice place to eat, nothing fancy, but just nice. We found this restaurant which seems to fit all: romantic (this is how we felt it), family (there was a big table with a nice family), friends enjoying a dinner. The staff was very nice, the atmosphere was perfect, the food was very good. We had... More

Mani mani is a nice small restaurant near the Acropolis museum. It combines an old architecture with a renovated clean modern look. The food is delicious as it combines traditional Greek ingredients such as fruits, cheeses, vegetables honey, etc. I recommend the entry salad with figs and cretan-style cheese as the contrast of sweet and salty is perfectly balanced. The... More

The charming receptionist at our wonderful AthensWas Hotel recommended this restaurant. We had skipped lunch and by 17:00 were hungry so arrived very early for dinner, which turned out to be a bonus. We were able to get a table without a reservation on a Friday evening (we needed to be finished by 19:30) and before 18:00 Mondays-Fridays you can... More

On our third day in Athens we went for late lunch to Mani Mani and we really enjoyed it. The service was pretty good, the waiter recommended us some wines and also helped us describing us better some dishes as for all of us it was the first time trying greek food. We had a couple of appetizers and some... More

After a few meals in the Taverna style restaurants, this was a great alternative. This is more haute cuisine style food from (largely) the Mani Mani area of Greece. The fava bean "dip" was the best we had on our trip. Service was good. Wine list was not cheap, but house wine was fine.

It's been a long time since my taste buds weren't so excited!! And the atmosphere is so lovely too. Nothing negative to say about the service except that half portions weren't available on the two days we were there.

Thank Amelie1474

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.
