Oh soooo good food! The atmosphere of an evening meal in this lovely neighbourhood, the beautiful surroundings. The dimmed lights on the streets and if you are lucky some Gipsy musicians playing by will make you feel like you are in a movie. Needless to say that every single dish is freshly made with the best ingredients. Many gluten free... More

There are soooo many places to eat in Athens.....yet when you are not expecting it, the place finds you. After the usual and many tourist stops you undoubtably make during the day in Greece, we found it time to eat and seeking a lunch location. Fortunately, we found ourselves in front of "The Old Tavern of Paras" and decided to... More

Perched on a hilly side street in Plaka, it has a nice courtyard cafe feel about it. Definitely order 'family style' because the portions are generous- and delicious.

This place is beautiful at night - beautiful lighting, seating on an old stepped street. Yes you may pay a little more ( but no more than other simple tourist restaurants), but the food is excellent. The dip and bread - great! The courgette/ feta cakes (€7.50) delicious and very good moussaka (€8.50). Highly recommend and very romantic if you're... More

We visited Tou Psarra on our first night in Athens and we were so impressed by it we returned for our last night too. We went a bit early, but it soon started to fill up and it was easy to see that it is a popular place. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor on which foods to try,... More

Nice little restaurant in Plaka. We had two appetizers which where more than enough for a light mid day snack. Nice staff and great seating in the shade of trees.

The Plaka is a fun place to explore, but is easily the most touristic part of Athens. I would say that it is not easy to find a good restaurant in the Plaka. The I Palia Taverna Tou Psarra, known as the Fisherman's Tavern, is pretty good. The service was fine. The food was above average. The prices were fair.... More

The food didn't sweep us off our feet. Average quality and quite expensive. We had cuttlefish and kleftiko. It was just OK. Instead you pay for the surrounding view of Athens, part of Acropolis and St.Isidore's church.

While the food we ordered was good (we each ordered cheaper items on the menu) it seemed like food we could easily make at home. The more expensive dishes may have been otherwise, but in terms of affordable lunchtime food, it did not seem like it was worth the money we paid for it. The waiters, however, were very very...

The worst possible welcome in Plaka !!! Tourist trap! We are a family of 4, and already had our dinner in another place when we met by surprise with friends from our country. As our friends went dining into this place, we were forbidden by the boss to follow them just for the drink.

Thank jang7474

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
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 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 number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
