We went to Antika almost every day for the evening meal during oir 5-day stay at Athens. It was walking distance from our hotel O&B. The food was lovely, prices reasonable and very friendly staff. Being vegetarians, we were not sure of how we shall manage but Antika staff removed all our apprehensions. They in fact made a special dish for us.

After spending a few days touring Delphi and Corinth and the Greek islands we explored some neighborhoods in Athens, close to the Plaka. While walking in Monastiraki we came upon a few tavernas on Adrianou Street. During a busy lunch hour on a sunny afternoon, we found a table in the Antica Café.

Antica is a small outdoor taverna, located near the archeological ruins and a flea-market. It has a traditional Greek menu with a long selection of coffee drinks. We started with a good Greek salad and bread and concluded with excellent cold cappuccino with whipped cream. People in nearby tables were having Greek fries, meat and fish dishes. With Greek music coming out of the kitchen, small birds landing on our table for treats and the sun shining at 70 degrees life could not be more relaxing. We kept coming back to Antica café for afternoon lunches and were recognized by the manager Niko and the friendly wait-staff on each occasion.

Sundays are busy at the Antica, so diners may have to sit indoors. Prices are moderate.

Great pork Souvlaki, delicious meat platter and very fresh Greek salads with a great view at the foot of the Acropolis in a lovely terrace. The prices are good and the beer is cold, perfect for a sunny day.

Eating beneath the acropolis its self is a unique experience, this restaurant is located in the historic center of Athens in a only pedestrian street. After walking around in the sun between ruins of more than 2500 years old you end up in Antica Cafe restaurant, there you will find Greek food and beyond which tastes good and the prices are fine. Enjoy a bottle of wine in this place.... its just great.
Hope to be back there.

It's a sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, you've just visited the Acropolis, and now it's lunch time. What do you do? Well, you could do much worse than visit the Antica Cafe. It sits at the foot of the Acropolis, just off the Athens Flea Market, on the route of the red and blue tourist trains that tour that area. The food is good - try the meat balls with a few chips and a local cold beer. The service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is all that the Plaka area can provide. Try it. You won't regret it.
