We stopped for lunch and had a few mezzes and some kebabs. the Greek salad, the grilled halloumi and the zucchini croquettes were all excellent. the kebab was average. the view on the ancient Agora was very nice. the one thing I would really change are the chairs which are pretty uncomfortable. Friendly service and reasonable prices. Recommended

My wife and I ate lunch here one day after touring the Agora area. We stopped in at the Antica and had baked cheese and meatballs. They were delicious. The service was excellent and that made for an outstanding meal. I would deffinitely recommend this restaurant.

We had lunch here a couple of times during our vacation. We found the friendliest staff and the best food in town :) We tried gyros, souvlaki, grilled cheese, antica and house salads etc... Everything was perfect and the prices are very good.

A little gem overlooking the Parthenon, seemed to be run by a cool couple who were attentive but not pushy. Went with my 14 year old son at 9pm. Food was fresh and local, we ordered too much but with jug of local wine and a smoothie, starters and mains only came to €35, seemed a good price to me.... More

After a long walkabout on the Parthenon, you look only for something to eat and drink. The choice is difficult because the area is full of touristic restaurants. But among all these tricky places, a light shines. This restaurant will surprise with a very good cooking and an efficient and kind service. And besides, the dishes are rich and prodigal.... More

This restaurant has a great view and very tasty food. One of the best tzatziki in town. Lots of cats will quietly surround you while eating.

Antica is a bit of a touristy restaurant, but the food served here is really good. The menu is varied, and the food is fresh and well cooked. A good people watching place. No complaints at all.

If one expects typica "tourist's food" on this great tourist location, one is very happily surprised, the service is friendly and excellent, the food is basic Greek in choice but of very high quality; all is fresh, of good taste, rich portion, well served...in short a festive experience for a very reasonable price.

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.
