We enjoyed the food here. You can eat inside or outside. The atmosphere is relaxed and the prices are reasonable.

“It's delightful”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband has been eating at To Kafaneio for more than 20 years. A Greek client took him there and he has been a fan ever since. Together, we make a point of visiting at least once on our biannual trips in March and October. We usually sit outside, we did two nights ago, and enjoy watching the locals walking their dogs or just strolling by.

The food is very good "home cookin'" Greek and we recommend the roast suckling pig. It is delicious and falls off the bone. We also have steamed vegetables, a Greek salad and spinach pie.

The waiters (particularly Costas) are charming, helpful to non-Greeks, and very amusing. One night when we shared a tiramisu Costas insisted on dividing it for us. He said he had been married for over 40 years and he did not want to put us in danger of divorce.

We are huge fans of this place.

“Classy Restaurant in the heart of Athens”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

A very nice restaurant located in one of the central districts of Athens. Give it's proximity to the parliament it is often the restaurant of choice for many politicians.

The food is traditional Greek taverna style food, only this time made with excellent ingredients. You can visit the place both I summer and winter as it has also some nice tables for people eating outside.

I really enjoyed the lamb frikasse.
