We ate here once for an evening meal and the food was stunning. The service was great and the waiting staff were smartly dressed. Probably the best steak in Athens.

Not the hippest place, but very elegant with great, classic Greek dishes. Note the photos of visiting dignitaries by the front door, including the Clintons, etc., etc. We were there for a special occasion (a significant birthday), and it was PERFECT for that.

Tried the specialities (ie Lamb and pork), grilled (chicken breast and beef burger), greek salads and fried haloumi cheese. Foods are average, reasonable price. Best of all is the fried haloumi cheese.

Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to
stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a
pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious
traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a
