Firstly, massive props to this place for having a lovely outdoor seating area that doesn't squash you between the resturant door and the tourist train that rattles past every 15 minutes! The garden area across the road is spacious, and has those brilliant fans with water misters on to help you keep cool.
My friend and I spent a very pleasant couple of hours here one afternoon, when we'd basically finished being tourists. The staff were happy to let us sit (it wasn't a busy time of day) and kept us well supplied with water and bits and pieces.
My eyes were somewhat larger than my stomach, and I ordered a GIANT ice cream which was, admittedly, delicious.
I'd definitely recommend this as a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by.

Ydria has one of the best spots to sit and people-watch, excellent service with the friendliest waiters, great food and one of the best Campari Sodas I have ever had. Prices are reasonable, but the atmosphere is priceless!

We were in Athens for our 6th wedding anniversary and as the sun was setting and we were wandering about the Plaka, came upon this restaurant and decided to celebrate there. Good choice! We had a delicious meal and our waiter, Anastasios, was wonderful!

We stopped for lunch and had a great table with cooling water spray. I ordered spagetti with pesto and it was delicious. It was nicer than the pasta I had in Italy. All the dishes were flavoursome. Good portions, decent service and good value.
