The food is delicious- would highly recommend the tzatziki, vine wraps, aubergine salad and a lovely red wine to wash it all down! The atmosphere is lovely, it was pouring with rain when we were there but it still had the Greek feel in the...More

A wet evening had reduced the number of diners but we were safely under the awning in the courtyard - a splendid setting. Staff were attentive. The food was slightly disappointing - we have had tastier dishes - but adequate and big portions. The bill...More

There is a lovely outside terrace that lures you in to experience taste free food at high prices. A half bottle of basic house wine costs €15. Keep walking.

We really enjoyed our meal here at Daphne's. The courtyard seating was beautiful, the staff was amazing, and food was above average. Not a cheap place but a really nice dinning experience. Would go back.

and play. Its attractive features include small

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