Description: A traditional and quant Cafe - Restaurant located in the very heart of Plaka A whole era comes alive for the visitors who wonder around the alleys and the cobbled streats of the picturesque and oldest neighborhood of Athens, Plaka. Among the historic neighborhoods and crowded alleys, you can discover "Anafiotika". No no, we are not talking about Anafiotika area, but about our very own "Anafiotika" !!! The traditional Cafe - Restaurant, as our patrons and visitors call it, "Anafiotika" makes an exception in the street of Mnisikleous and Thrasivoulou. The famous "stairs" as you may have heard!

“Best meal we had in Athens!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Great restaurant! Very warm ambiance, the food was great - especially the mushrooms - and the service was excellent. Ask for George and he will take very good care of you!
Just get there early as it gets booked pretty quickly. Highly recommend it!

“Great food&vibe”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed my dinner experience in this cozy, fully packed, busy, young place with live music. The waiter was very nice, the ingredients were all fresh and the food was yummi. This place is also good for a drink on the terrace. I would definitely come back!

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We found this restaurant after wandering around looking for somewhere to eat. There is a slope with several restaurants to choose from and this was at the top and was buzzing with life. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. We ordered the seafood platter to share and the waiter suggested a Greek salad to go with it - good call. The salad was good and then the sea food arrived. It was very nice but there was far too much for us to eat and we would have paid the same money for half that quantity! When we paid the waiter said he had a surprise for us so we waited. He turned up with 2 desserts that were delicious - blackcurrants over a sort of creamy yoghurty base - all inclusive in the price. Well worth the visit and we would have gone back except there were so many other restaurants to try.

“Great vibe”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

One of the few places that was open on a holiday (carnival) late night. Great location and nice atmosphere. Good beer and appetizers.
