“best restaurant in the plaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

MONO has a great atmosphere and even better food. The mono salad with warm goat cheese is the perfect start to the meal. We had the chicken, ribeye and asparAgus risotto for entrees, absolutley delicious. After a day and a half of over-priced bad tourist food, i was so thankful to find a great restaurant with high quality preparation. The restaurant is clean, the waitstaff have perfect English. Being here you really feel like you are on vacation. MY 10 year old loved it. She is a big foodie so I was not surprised by her reaction. Her favorite was the lemon tart for dessert.

“a huge Bravo to Vasilis and Giota”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

I've visited this restaurant several times since May of 2013. Each time the experience is getting even better, weather it's a business lunch or a family dinner i enjoy being there and i feel confident if i am to impress my guests. Moreover I feel like home since the service is as funky and formal as i like. The idea of serving every wine in the winelist by the glass makes me want to combine several wines with every dish ( i'm that kind of person who drinks 2 or more different type of wines with the same dish) . Nice , cosy and nimimal . Vasilis , the chef is a low profile person who does a wonderful job. when you go there try the fois grass , actually try as much as you can eat !!! i've recomeded Mono to several friends and clients. All of them call me back to thank me for the recomendation. have i mentioned about the wine events Mono organises??? the consept is to promote greek winemakers that are not that famous and are in need to meet in person us, the customers... I've met quite a few there and i feel great to shake hands and have a chat with the ones whose wine i enjoy drinking. And when the bill is about to make the entrance i don't mind because the feeling i get is i pay less than the pleasure i get

“Such a nice surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

Just past by the restaurant and got attracted to the menu, decided to give it a try, one of the best decisions we made during the trip, the food is amazing! Such a big surprise! We ended up ordering one more entree because the food is so good, strongly recommend the shrimp yuzu risotto, best risotto I have ever had. It is a bit pricy and food portion is small, but will definitely come back again when I visit Athens.
