When u go to Athens, you must visit Smile. Staff was great, food was delicious. The famous Greek donuts were absolutely amazing! Restaurant is close to Acropolis.

On our day of arrival we happened across this place and we were glad we did. A really welcoming family run restaurant, the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable about both the food and things to see in the city.
We returned to eat 3 times in total. We ate at other places but Smile couldn't be beaten, the owner even gave us her email address so she could send us her recipe for the stuffed vine leaves, which were lovely.

We ate at this restaurant twice while in Athens last week. The service was warm and friendly, and the prices were great on some items,like the gyro sandwich. The menu is somewhat limited, and the food is good, not great. The lamb "specialty" was a disappointment, but the moussaka, pastichio, kebab and gyro are all pretty good. Not the best food we had in Athens but adequate.

We ate here quite a few times during our stay in Athens. This is a family restaurant. You'll find the entire family working long hours here. (Who knew teenagers or 20 somethings would be willing to work 7 days a week!)The food here is inexpensive and good. They have free wifi. The family treated us as locals. Recognizing us by name. One of the top values anywhere.

Whilst walking through the streets of Athens my husband and I came across a flyer that has a map of the city, just what we needed. The map promoted a little cafe, Smile. Luckily it did too, cause we didn't know where & what to eat.

It was a great little cafe/restaurant, good and affordable food..not one of those places where they take advantage of hapless tourist. And the restaurant lived up to its name, the staff were friendly and served us with a smile.
