Description: Attalos restaurant-cookhouse is located on the pedestrian road of Adrianos street, on the verge of the historical center of Athens, exactly opposite the renowned Ancient Market. Having a panoramic view at Acropolis, in a pleasant sunny environment, we are waiting for you to taste some of the most delicious traditional Greek food with a great service and at rational prices.

Don't be put off by the friendly chaps outside the line of tavernas along Adrianou in Athens; they're just out there touting for business. And there are so many tavernas, which one are you going to choose? Keep moving past the entrance to the Ancient Agora and you will come to the Stoa of Attalos. Go in. It's spacious, it has outside dining (of course), and you won't feel cramped. The cooking is literally home made. Go back into the kitchen and see what's on offer. I think you'll like it: fresh sea bream, lamb stew, meatballs, aubergine, giant beans, moussaka, and pasticcio were some of the things on offer when I was there the other night. Of course, you can order off the menu, too, if you don't fancy what's immediately on offer.

If you sit outside you can watch the world go by, literally. This is quite a pedestrian thoroughfare, marred only by that nasty little tourist train that runs by every twenty minutes or so. Even so, it is fun to enjoy your wine while watching people from all the world decide if they're going to eat at Attalos, or one of the other tavernas which line this route. I am a tour leader, and it was my pleasure to bring a very happy group of visitors from Shanghai here for an evening treat. The service is friendly, the cooking home style. The ambience is relaxed.

Had dinner here with Greek friends: the real plus is the location, the view in the evening is absolutely stunning. Grilled sardines and fried small fish were excellent, the taramosalata, which they claim is homemade, tasted of nothing. All in all, OK, and really inexpensive.

Close to the Acropolis, we enjoyed a very good greek lunch for 12?/pax including drinks. Try the aubergin with ognons!! The people are very sympathetic. It is a good place and very well located.
