you get transposrted to the early 20th century Athens eatery under a row of big retsina barrels mostly local nationals and central market workers . Greek traditional dishes with emphasis on soups and grilled fish, excellent retsina, ,(do NOT visit the WC)

Tucked in just west of the vegetable stalls at the central market, you will find no sign of a restaurant; just a wall with some steps going underground. Diporto means '2 doors' and that is all the clue you will get. When you bravely descend the step steps (you tall fellas will need to watch your head) you will find... More

We ate an excellent dinner here. We arrived late, so the music was just ending, go earlier so you can enjoy the entertainment. The owner/chef offered us a fixed menu - fish, lamb, a vegetarian dish and wine - all of it was very flavorful and delicious.

One of the oldest taverns of the town, still untapped. You get served a chickpea soup, fava beans and some wine from the barrel. There are also other alternatives to eat I think but who asks for it! This is the place to break your fast after shopping at central market, having your coffee at Mokka while waiting for it... More

This unmarked and totally unchanged room gives one a glimpse of what eating out for the working classes must have been like 100 years ago. If the food was anything like Diporto then it must've been fantastic! Do not miss this place

This restaurant is not like usual restaurants. It's difficult to find and situated in a small cellar. But the atmosphere is absolutely beautiful. There are barrols of which you get the wine. Sometimes they are playing live acordeon. And - the most important thing - the traditional greek food cooked in a very small kitchen is very delicious. I can... More

Wonderful traditional taverna with excellent food that you choose from big pots in the kitchen. Retsina from huge barrels, crusty bread, generous portions, good service and excellent traditional Greek fare make this taverna a pleasure to support. There are only 8 tables and he closes when the food is finished. We will most certainly be back.

We visit Diporto every time we visit Athens, sometimes for many days in a row. It always offers the most tasty simple traditional food downtown (cuttlefish, fava, beans soup, probably the best chickpeas soup in the world, small fish, salad) and for 10 euros per person you can´t ask for more. But there is more: the ambience of joy and... More

Staying in Omonia

Neighbourhood Profile
Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its underground stalls, the square is now mostly frequented by immigrants and bargain shoppers. The most rewarding area to explore is to the south. Set off down Athinas Street, with the Acropolis gradually coming into focus in the distance, and you will get a sense of old commercial Athens, especially at the picturesque meat, fish and vegetable markets some way beyond the City Hall. The blocks to the west of Athinas are home to many Chinese and South Asian traders, adding a multicultural atmosphere to what was until the late 1990s a very homogenous society.
