We eat a lot but this plate was surprisingly too much for us. Tasty and good representation of the Plaka.

When my family chose O thanasis, I thought it would be an average lunch. We sat indoors, the place soon got crowded and it became too noisy. The menu also isn't well diversified. You can find the basic and main greek platters and few appetizers....More

Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a
difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the
Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized
streets surround the remains of both the Greek and
Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is
where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the
tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki
Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street

I think not. I believe that to best taste this kind of food (you must have Greek friends to know that food), you should visit a taverna outside Athens.
