Description: - "To Trikyklo" (tricycle) is a cafeteria- tavern- bar, located next to the park of the Lambrakis hill, at the pedestrian of Pytheou str., in a renovated two-floor stone building of 1931, with its own yard and tables outside, on the pedestrian street in the summer. We are located very close to the Acropolis Museum and the Temple of Zeus. Although outside the tourist area of downtown Athens, we are very close to it on foot. The menu consists of authentic Greek and Mediterranean recipes, prepared with love and creativity. --All Greek (and other) spirits served, are carefully selected!

We left our meal choices up to the suggestion of our lovely waitress who did no disappoint. We shared 6 different dishes and all of them were amazing!!!
Excellent wine and excellent food were a decadent match.
Our waitress stayed and spoke with us for at least 15 mins explaining meals and talking.
Such a great experience for our honeymoon!!!

We went to Trikyklo on our last night in Athens thanks to trip advisor positive comments, being tired of the very average -touristic food tasted the previous days. It has been a revelation :Yes, Greek food can be diverse and reveal subtle and amazing tastes. Everything we tried was just great! Shrimps, grilled vegetables , veal cooked in red sauce (I recommend) and my favorite one : eggplants cooked in oven with tomato and cheese. Kind and efficient service, dessert offered , and all this for cheaper than just 2 courses in Plaka!

Found this place on trip advisor. Was looking for good seafood. This place was located in a residential neighborhood about a 20 min walk from the hotel grand britagne. Very friendly staff who spoke English well. The have a small plates option like tapas which allows you to try many things. The marinated anchovys were fantastic.

Close (12-15m walk) from the central tourist part of Athens is this little gem.

The most authentic greek cuisine experience for amazingly inexpensive prices with a lovely friendly hostess who will make you feel like a local.

To Trikyklo serves incredibly tasty tapas (small or large) sized dishes, with nothing everything approx 4-7 euros a serve. We ordered 5 dishes, large size, some wine and with the bread and dip ate like Kings and we were served small complimentary dishes too of eggplant dip and dessert. We couldnt finish the meal between two of us and the total cost was 37 euros. You will not eat anywhere in the tourist area so well for so little, and the lovely hostess chatted with us for 5 minutes a time 4-5 times throughout the meal and made us feel thoroughly welcome.
At the very least, once you found your feet in Athens and are tired of the spruiking, impersonal service and souvlaki of Plaka and Monastiraki head out to To Trikyklo...you will wish you went there first.

This restaurant is slightly out of main touristic area; which is nice in my opinion. It's located in a nice, quiet area about 10 min walking from the Acropolis museum (and conveniently nearby the hotel that we stayed in).

We were warmly welcomed by the hosts, and they were prepared to happily explain everything about the menu. The great thing is that you are able to get smaller sized portions, which makes it possible to taste more dishes. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice, we saw that many local people also had dinner here.

The food was wonderful and we could taste that it was all freshly prepared (especially compared to some other restaurants we visited in Athens). Prices are all very reasonable for what is served, and we had one of our best meals during our holiday.

The complimentary dessert is a nice bonus! The hosts definitely did their best to give us a wonderful experience in their restaurant (in a friendly and relaxed way). We would definitely recommend this restaurant, and will return here next time we visit Athens!
