In an area full of restaurants, this stood out for the absence of the hard sell. Our questions were answered with no pressure. We ate fish and mussels, fresh and cooked to perfection.

We stopped by Attalos on our first night in Athens. As usual, we were one of the first at the restaurant - as we like to eat early and enjoy a sweet snack later - and got a great spot on the edge of their dining area outside. They have a great view of Acropolis and are in a great... More

A nice restaurant in a perfect location near to the acropolis.. it was a good break after a long morning in the acropolis.. the food is good ( the best greek salad I've ever tasted.. ). The interior of the restaurant is also pretty and clean.. The price is suitable and the staff is really friendly.. I recommend.

We heard about this place as a recommendation from a fellow Grecian. He said "I could eat at this place for every meal" and he was right! The staff was very kind and remembered us every time we walked by the restaurant. The fried zucchini balls are a MUST!!

Attalos's open kitchen allows you to see and smell the food before ordering. It's conveniently located on a main road with a view of Ancient Greece while you dine. The friendly waiters make this restaurant a great experience. We had the very tasty Greek traditional dish of eggplant covered with ground beef and a bechamel sauce as well as fried... More

We ate in this restaurant on the first evening of a short city break to Athens, having been approached as we strolled along looking for somewhere to eat. The menu had plenty to choose from, for all tastes, and the portion size was very good. We ordered two glasses of wine and the manager suggested that it was cheaper to... More

The wait staff reeled us in as we were walking by and I'm glad he did. The fried zucchini balls we ordered for an appetizer were absolutely delicious and there were five huge ones. More like patties than balls. Honestly, with some bread, it would have been enough for dinner. Instead, my wife had oven roasted lamb with potatoes and... More

We were doing the red Hop on Hop off bus in Athens, and decided to have brunch along the way. We got off at A14, near the Ancient Cemetry of Keramikos, and discovered Attalos Restaurant - a quaint restaurant with a lovely view, excellent service and delicious fresh food, well worth the visit.

Staying in Monastiraki

Neighbourhood Profile
Monastiraki is a souvenir-hunting enclave with a difference. Apart from the dramatic backdrop of the Acropolis, its network of alleys and pedestrianized streets surround the remains of both the Greek and Roman agoras, adding the quaint concept that this is where the ancients also came to shop. Named after the tiny monastery church at its center, Monastiraki Square is a lively spot by day or night, with street peddlers vying for your attention to sell you nuts and sweets. Down beside the metro station, the official Flea Market is an unbroken row of souvenir shops until you come to antique-oriented Platia Avissinias, while Pandrossou Street on the other side of the square offers more tourist shopping. The pedestrianized street beside the Greek Agora is lined with cafés offering fine views.
