“Cosy place that serves Great Greek Food”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Went here for lunch on a lazy afternoon. Had the meatballs in the house sauce, saganaki, zucchini fritters and tzaziki. Loved it all. Also had their own oak barrel wine which went perfectly with our meal. Service was quick and friendly and they served us a very delicious complimentary liqueur at the end of the meal.

“Very good food and excellent service”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Went for an evening meal in this lovely traditional cosy restaurant after reading recommendation from TripAdvisor. Friendly and speedy serving on food and drinks. We ordered several meze to try- zucchini fritters, marinated mackerels, meat ball with the sauce, a salad and grilled cheese dish.

Reasonable price for drinkings.
Great pricing and lovely atmosphere to enjoy an evening meals.

Slight down fall was that there were other dinner parties there smoking indoors, slightly unpleasant when dining.

“Amazing "authentic food”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We were in Athens for 3 days and we went there twice ! The food is incredible, authentic and good price. Must try the meatballs and saganaki. The best part is that it's not a commercial place which makes it more fun.
You won't regret it

“Very nice greek tavern”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We were strolling in the heart of Plaka and my Tripadvisor app told me that To Kafeneio deserved a visit. We pushed the doors and we quickly found ourselves sitting in front of the fireplace in a family-run restaurant dating back to 1800's. There were not a lot of people in the restaurant, so we had full attention of the waiter. We ordered some mezze, the famous meat balls and the kavournas and everything was very nice (especially the meat balls). The bill was rather light, too. Good place overall.

“unusual way of serving meals”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

I am used to getting a side dish. In this restaurent this is not the case. So you are rensponsible for yourself ;-). For example we ordered Kavourmas and solely got the delicious meat with sauce. Luckily we had bread on the table.
At our second visit we were wise and ordered fried zucchini and somithing else i forgot along with the meatballs in THE sauce. So we had some sort of side dish as well.
Everything we ordered there was really delicious. It is a bit more expensive than taverns but worth it.
The service is ok.
