The owner kept the restaurant open for us after a long day of traveling from Santorini. Once arrived the owner and waitress was so hospitable. They greeted us warmly and seated us immediately. Once the food was ordered it came out promptly. The food was...straight off the grill and hot. We had moukasa, prawns, fired cheese, grilled octopus, greek salad, and silver snapper. It all was so delicious.More

I found this place by accident when the original plan didn’t work out. Four minutes from the Marriott, the food was excellent and the staff friendly. Not speaking the language or knowing anything about Greek food the waitress helped me choose a delicious meal. I...would recommend Arsenis Tavern with no hesitation and future trips to Athens will take the hotels proximity to their delicious food into account!More

Me and my family had a great time at Arsenis' tavern! First of all, we felt safe, as all personnel was wearing masks, it was very clean and distances were kept. The food was great, all made with care and it felt very cosy being...at the nice front yard. Xenia and Eleni were very friendly and professional, making our overall experience really enjoyable! We will definitely go again!!More

Really welcoming and friendly with delicious food. A short walk away from the Marriott. It was our first night in Greece and we wanted to eat ALL the food. We compromised and ordered a few starters including grilled octopus, olives, and giant beans. The grilled...fish was excellent as was the fried calamari and the shrimp in a tomato and cheese sauce.More

Arsenis Taverna is truly a beautiful hidden gem of home style Greek cooking. Upon entering you are greeting by the entire family, daughters and of course mama who cooks for you and proud name sake Kyrios Arsenis, who continuously makes sure that you are well...cared for. The food is traditional, fresh but most of all it is like stepping into their home for dinner 😊 Must try is the grilled octopus, marinated sardines, zucchini keftedes, tzatziki and their skordalia as a few appetizers for your main course let either Eleni or Xenia suggest what mom has been cooking, trust you can not go wrong. Thank you to the entire family for reminding me how wonderful moms kitchen is when one is so far from home. 😍More

We had a wonderful experiences about this charming taverna! It was so close to our hotel, so easily reachable by 2 minutes walk. This taverna is operated by a family, they welcomed and treated us like a family member. The dishes we had, were absolutely...amazing and delicious! First time we tried the greek salad and the grilled silver snapper with grilled vegetables... OMG! It was so fresh and amazing taste! Second time, we tried the tzaziki and greek salad again and the schrimp with veggies... and we were enchanted again! The staff is very friendly, watchful and they pay their attention to everything! They serve the cold beer in a frozen beer mug!!! Simply, but great!!! They offer indoor and outdoor seating as well, both of them are so pleasant, but it's more cozy outside if it's not too hot! I really recommend this wonderful place for everybody visiting Athens... we will definietly be back if we are in Athens again! Special thanks to the whole staff and the owner! I wish them a lot of satisfied guest!!!!More
